On 9th March, Amazon Prime Video announced an exclusive world premiere, ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’, which is the last work of Late Rishi Kapoor.
The Sharmaji Namkeen movie is directed by Hitesh Bhatia and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under Excel Entertainment in association with Honey Trehan and Abhishek Chaubey of MacGuffin Pictures.
The movie brought together Late Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal for first time for one single character along with Juhi Chawla, Taaruk Raina and many more actors.
After the passing of Rishi Kapoor, as he was fighting with leukaemia, another legendary actor Paresh Rawal took the role in place of the Late Rishi Kapoor in ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’ for the remaining parts of this film.
The veteran late actor had already filmed most of the scenes of ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’ with Juhi Chawla at the beginning of 2020.
The movie is all about a heartwarming story of self-realization and discovery as it dwells upon the life of a recently retired man who discovers his passion for cooking after joining a riotous women’s kitty circle.
Ritesh Sidhwani said that the movie is a massive tribute to Late Rishi Kapoor and his impressive fame and charm. He also added that they are happy to add another masterpiece to their powerful collaboration with Prime Video.
The movie will be released on 30th March on Amazon Prime Video worldwide.
