Around two months after releasing the motion poster, Yash Raj Films revealed the first trailer of their upcoming film, Bank Chor on Tuesday. The film stars Riteish Deshmukh, Viveik Oberoi and Rhea Chakraborty.

Directed by Bumpy, Bank Chor is about three people scheming to rob a bank, and how all their plans fall flat in the face of circumstances totally out of their control.

The Yash Raj Films’ trailer opens with a reminder after “cool chor” (Hrithik in Dhoom 2) and a “smart chor” (Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3), it’s time we embraced the “real bank chor”.

The film’s trailer, launched Tuesday morning, introduces the “real bank chor”: Champak Chandrakant Chiplunkar, a simple Marathi manoos played by Riteish Deshmukh who picks the worst day possible to rob a bank. To make matters worse, he recruits two “idiots”. They also have to contend with a crazy bunch of hostages inside the bank which includes a high-strung housewife, a hyper chef, a possibly undercover cop… and Baba Sehgal.

Riteish Deshmukh said in a press statement, “It’s been my childhood dream to work in a Yash Raj Film one day. Since that hasn’t happened despite repeated attempts, I settled for the next best thing, a Y-Films production. Jokes apart, Champak is a really fun & relatable character, the kind you probably have around you every day but never notice until the day he does something outrageously stupid. Well, this is that day when you will certainly sit up and take notice!”

“Bank Chor features three idiots who need rescuing from their own buffoonery. As Amjad Khan, I will not be able to rescue the chors but I will definitely try to rescue the film by giving the worst bank chors the worst day of their lives ever,” Vivek added.

Bank Chor is set to release in theatres on June 16. Sahil Vaid, Bhuvan Arora, Vikram Thapa also feature in the film.
