In the video, the ‘Jagga Jasoos’ actor said, ”You must have heard ‘The show must go on’, but I’ve seen Papa live his life. ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’ will always be my one of the fondest memories of my father. Up on screen, bringing a smile to his countless fans.” The actor even urged the audience to shower love on the film, just the way they praised the late Rishi Kapoor.
Kareena wrote, ”In fond memory” adding the hashtag Chintu Uncle. The film is based on the life of a recently retired man who discovers his passion for cooking after joining a riotous women’s kitty circle.

The film stars Rishi and Paresh Rawal, both of whom play the titular character, alongside Juhi Chawla, Suhail Nayyar, Taaruk Raina, Satish Kaushik, Sheeba Chaddha, and Isha Talwar. It will premiere on a streaming platform on March 31.
Rishi Kapoor passed away at the age of 67 in April 2020 after a two-year-long battle with leukaemia. After his sudden demise, the makers had roped in Rawal to complete the remaining portions of the film. This is for the first time that two actors have played the same character in one movie.
