Mumbai/IBNS: Bollywood actor-producer Farhan Akhtar Saturday shared the posters of Hindi film Sharmaji Namkeen on the occasion of late actor Rishi Kapoor's birth anniversary.

Farhan, who is one of the producers of the film, shared two posters, one featuring Rishi Kapoor and the other Paresh Rawal.

Rawal has actually played Kapoor's role after the latter passed away in April 2020.

An excerpt of Farhan's Instagram reads, "We are proud to present, the poster of a very special film- Sharmaji Namkeen, starring one of the most celebrated actors in the Hindi film industry whose inimitable work and sparkling career we will cherish forever, Mr. Rishi Kapoor.

"As a mark of love, respect and remembrance of him and as a gift to his millions of fans, here is the first look of his final film. A big thank you to Mr. Paresh Rawal, who completed the film by agreeing to take the sensitive step of portraying the same character played by Rishi Ji."

The dramedy, which also stars Juhi Chawla in a key role, is directed by debutant Hitesh Bhatia
