Baba Sehgal plays himself in 'Bank-Chor'
Mumbai: Baba Sehgal, popular as the king of 'desi rap', will be seen as himself in Y-Films's "Bank-Chor". His cameo was especially written for the movie.
The singer, best remembered for songs like "Thanda thanda paani" and "Dil dhadke", will be seen as one of the hostages stuck inside the bank during the heist in the film. His character will drive everyone, including the robbers, the bank employees, customers and other hostages's crazy with his rapping.
The team at Y-Films is excited to have Baba in a cameo in "Bank-Chor".
"The part was specially written in a later draft as both Bumpy (the director) and I are huge fan boys of the man," Ashish Patil, producer, Y-Films, said in a statement.
Baba also agreed to the role in one go.
"He's also been entertaining the crew with his batty raps that he makes up on the spot about everything from the oily 'medu wada' to the spot boy serving chai (tea). What a mad film this is shaping out to be," Patil added.
"Bank-Chor" is a comic-caper that tells the story of three morons trying to rob a bank who pick the worst day possible when everything that can go wrong, goes wrong and how they're inadvertently caught in the crossfire of policemen, industrialists and corrupt politicians.
The film stars Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Rhea Chakraborty in lead roles.
