'Sharmaji Namkeen will be one of my fondest memories of my father'
Gone, but certainly not forgotten, the late Rishi Kapoor left behind a legacy that spans five decades and will be cherished forever. His last movie, 'Sharmaji Namkeen', is soon to be released and cinephiles and fans are eager to watch this special movie.
Honouring his legacy, his son and one of India's finest young actors, Ranbir Kapoor has shared a special heartwarming message for his fans. In a video that showed the actor speak straight from the heart, Ranbir revealed how his father, a man so full of life and positivity, wished to complete the film at all costs despite his health deteriorating.
Ranbir later said that his unfortunate departure resulted in the makers trying VFX and made the 'Brahmastra' star try prosthetics to complete the film with no luck. It was veteran actor Paresh Rawal who stepped in and ensured Rishi Kapoor's swansong gets a fitting conclusion, a gesture Ranbir is extremely grateful for.
Ranbir, who remembered his father with a phrase, said, "You must have heard 'The show must go on', but I have seen papa live his life."
The talented actor also added, " 'Sharmaji Namkeen' will always be my one of the fondest memories of my father. Up on the screen, bringing a smile to his countless fans," before urging viewers to shower their love for the film like they always did for Rishi Kapoor and requesting them to watch the film's trailer that released on March 17.
A relatable and heartwarming story of self-realisation and discovery, 'Sharmaji Namkeen' dwells on the life of a recently retired man who discovers his passion for cooking after joining a riotous women's kitty circle.
Directed by Hitesh Bhatia and produced by 'Excel Entertainment' in association with 'MacGuffin Pictures', the film stars the late Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal, both of whom play the titular character, alongside Juhi Chawla, Suhail Nayyar, Taaruk Raina, Satish Kaushik, Sheeba Chaddha and Isha Talwar.
The movie will premiere on 'Prime Video' on March 31.
