‘Bank-Chor’ is a comic-caper, that tells the story of 3 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 cops, industrialists and corrupt netas. Directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil, ‘Bank Chor’ is scheduled to go on the floors immediately and is planned for an early 2015 release.
