24 Aug – –"Sharmaji Namkeen", the final movie of legendary star Rishi Kapoor, will finally be releasing next month.

The news was shared by co-star Juhi Chawla, who revealed in an interview that the movie will be released on 4 September to coincide with Rishi's 68th birthday.

"The producers Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Honey Trehan, had worked hard to ensure that the film releases on Rishi Kapoor's birth anniversary," she said, adding that the film had one of the funniest and sweetest scripts she had ever read.

Juhi also stated that the movie was tailor-made for Rishi, and that it would be a great farewell film.

It is noted that Rishi and Juhi have worked in multiple films in the past, including "Bol Radha Bol" and "Eena Meena Deeka".

In a previous interview, co-producer Honey Trehan revealed that they would use VFX and some other techniques to shoot the portion that needed Rishi, after the actor - who suffered from leukaemia - passed away in April last year prior to finishing the already delayed project.
