Earlier, in an interview, Nandita had explained why she chose comedian Kapil Sharma to play the lead role in this emotional drama, “The film attempts to make visible what’s hidden in plain sight. And for this, the cast and crew has serendipitously come together. One day, Kapil Sharma popped up on my screen! I hadn’t seen his show, but I could see him wholly representing the ‘common man’, despite not being one anymore.”

Here’s the trailer of Zwigato:

Apart from Kapil Sharma, the film has Shahana Goswami in the lead role as a homemaker, who also helps the family by taking up a job. Zwigato has been jointly produced by Sameer Nair’s Applause Entertainment and Nandita Das Initiatives.
