The official trailer of the film has not been launched yet but the Toronto International Film Festival’s Twitter handle shared the trailer of Zwigato which shows a scene between Kapil and Shahana, who plays his wife in the film.
The news becomes even more exciting as it presents a serious side of Kapil who is generally expected to do comedy. It can be ascertained from the short video clip that Kapil is playing a struggling middle class man who is struggling to make ends meet and tied to old patriarchal social norms as he cannot bear his wife earning more than him.
