First look of ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’, Rishi Kapoor’s last movie is out


On the birth anniversary of Rishi Kapoor, daughter Riddhima has unveiled the poster of his final movie, Sharmaji Namkeen’. The poster shows Rishi Kapoor in his usual happy spirit.


Alia Bhatt shared the poster on her Instagram story and added, ‘Miss You’.


“We are proud to present the poster of a very special film- Sharmaji Namkeen, starring one of the most celebrated actors in the Hindi film industry whose inimitable work and sparkling career we will cherish forever, Mr. Rishi Kapoor. As a mark of love, respect and remembrance of him and as a gift to his millions of fans, here is the first look of his final film,” Riddhima had shared.


The veteran actor had extensively shot for this light-hearted entertainer but was unable to complete the shoot. Paresh Rawal took on the role after Rishi Kapoor’s death to complete the film.


Riddhima went on to thank Paresh Rawal and added, “A big thank you to Mr. Paresh Rawal, who completed the film by agreeing to take the sensitive step of portraying the same character played by Rishi-ji. Produced by Excel Entertainment and Macguffin Pictures, directed by debutant Hitesh Bhatia, this film is a light-hearted coming-of-age story of a lovable 60-year-old-man.”


Rishi Kapoor passed away on April 30, 2020, after a two-year-long battle with cancer.
