The veteran actors will co-star after a gap of 23 years. They were last seen together in Abbas-Mustan’s Daraar in 1996. The film, a thriller, also starred Arbaaz Khan and Johnny Lever.Juhi Chawla was last seen in Shelly Chopra Dhar’s Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, a romantic comedy-drama that starred Sonam Kapoor in the lead. Before that, Juhi made a special appearance in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Zero.
Rishi Kapoor was last seen in Netflix’s Rajma Chawal, a film directed by Leena Yadav, reports The Indian Express.
A source told Deccan Chronicle, “The film, written by Bhatia and Supratik Sen, started production last September. But Rishi’s health started deteriorating at that time and the RK Studio sale was also announced. A bigger catastrophe befell the Kapoors when Krishna Raj Kapoor expired hours after Rishi left for New York for his treatment. Now with Rishi’s return by the end of August, the makers are readying to go on the floors.”
