Actor Rishi Kapoor left everyone heartbroken after he left for his heavenly abode on April 30, 2020. The legendary actor passed away after a two-year battle with Cancer. While his family members and his ardent fans miss him every day, the audience will get to see the superstar spelling his magic on the silver screen one last time. Yes, you read that right. Rishi’s last film ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’ will be released in theatres on his birthday, September 4. The actor died before filming could be completed and therefore actor Paresh Rawal has come on board to complete the remaining portions of the film.

On a related note, Sharmaji Namkeen will be produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar in association with MacGuffin Pictures.
