Sunil Grover breaks the fourth wall in ‘Coffee With D’ to refrain from Smoking

Sunil Grover is known to be an ace actor and has proved his metal, time and again, with all the characters he has played on television. The actor who will be seen as a protagonist in the upcoming ‘Coffee With D’, has delivered yet another powerful performance and will be seen playing the character of a primetime journalist Arnab. Since the character in the movie is from the media industry, the film makers reveal that there are various moments where Sunil is seen breaking the fourth wall in this entertaining film with a very unique subject.


Whenever he craves to smoke a cigarette, by virtue of being on camera all the time, he removes a cigarette from a pack and breaks the fourth wall between him and the audience and jokes about the line that appears on screen during a smoking shot and chucks smoking a cigarette. He does that multiple number of times, till he reaches ‘D’. Known for his spectacular timing, when Sunil’s character is interviewing ‘D’, he unhesitantly smokes his cigarette and talks to the audience directly and lets the warning line, “Smoking is injurious to health”, appear.

The entertaining narrative is employed by writer-director Vishal Mishra, to drive the audience to the point. Talking about the sequence he said,

“There are various instances in the film, where the narrative breaks the fourth wall and gives a humorous take on censorship. The censors have been very sporting about the comment and have enjoyed the timing of these sequences.”

Slated to release on the 20th of January, Coffee with D is directed & written by Vishal Mishra. It is produced under the banner of Apex Entertainment by Vinod Ramani and also stars Zakir Hussain, Dipannita Sharma & Anjana Sukhani in pivotal roles.
