Sharmaji Namkeen: Rishi Kapoor’s last movie to be completed using advanced VFX technology, reveal makers
Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor passed away on 30th April 2020 after a long battle with cancer for almost one and a half years. The legend will, however, be remembered through the medium of the fond memories which he has left behind through his movies. For the unversed, he had two projects lined up post his return to India, namely Sharmaji Namkeen and The Intern. The production process of the former was already rolling but sadly, Rishi Ji left for his heavenly abode before its completion.
However, as exclusively reported by Pinkvilla before, the makers of the movie have not shelved the project and will be releasing it too. But some of the crucial scenes were yet to be shot by the late actor. Now, as per a report by a leading daily, the makers of Sharmaji Namkeen will be completing these scenes with the help of advanced VFX technology and other techniques. This will be done so that no compromise is being made with the movie’s quality.
