New Delhi: Riteish Deshmukh is riding high after the success of his last film. `Ek Villain` saw the dark side of the versatile actor, something which we had not seen him do before. It was highly appreciated by the critics and the audience has made sure the movie is a massive hit.

This could possibly be the reason that Riteish has replaced Kapil Sharma in YRF`s `Bank Chor`. If the grapevine is to be believed, then the `Grand Masti` actor was announced as the lead for `Bank Chor`. One cannot neglect the charm that Kapil emaluates but Riteish is certainly one of the most bankable actors right now.

The film is scheduled to go on floors soon and is slated to release by next year.

Meanwhile, Riteish seems to be absolutely thrilled about the project. According to reports, the actor is quite happy to be in the film and is in love with the script.

The 32 year actor`s career graph has been nothing short of a roller-coaster ride. After receiving abundant applause for `Ek Villian`, he is all set with his next release, the much hyped Marathi flick `Lai Bhaari`.

The audience is definitely awaiting the latest `Bank Chor` in town!
