Comedian and actor Kapil Sharma plays a food deliveryman in Nandita Das' Zwigato. At the film's trailer launch recently, Sharma shared his own brush with the food delivery industry. “A lot of people ask me how I got under the skin of the character,” the actor said, before sharing that he had worked as a delivery helper for Coca-Cola in his hometown. “At the time, we didn’t struggle this way – we didn’t have delivery apps back then. There was just a salesman, who would drive the truck and had another helper with him,” shared Sharma.

Although Sharma never faced as many issues in his job due to Coca-Cola’s popularity in the Nineties, he did remember the struggle and hard work. “When I read the script and Nandita (Das) ma’am shared her research about how these deliverymen work and how much money they earn, I recalled my own experience,” the actor said. 

Zwigato also stars Shahana Goswami and releases on March 17.
