Riddhima Kapoor Sahani used her social media handle to compose a heartfelt statement as she saw her father’s final film ahead of its release. “It’s been almost two years since dad left us physically; but his charisma is still felt and his legend is still alive and will forever be. Today, as I watch the last film of my father, actor par excellence, a devoted son and brother, a doting husband and the most wonderful dad in the universe; I feel immensely proud of being his daughter! Paresh ji thank you for completing the movie. The family will always be indebted for your kind gesture,” shared Riddhima.
To be clear, in the movie, two actors – Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal – will play one character in a storey of self-realization and discovery. It depicts the lives of a newly retired man who rediscover his passion for cooking after becoming a member of a rowdy women’s kitty circle.
