MUMBAI: Next Gen Films and Kaleidoscope Entertainment announced today the release of Chintuji, a take on actors becoming politicians. Starring veteran actor Rishi Kapoor who plays himself (Chintu Kapoor), the satire is scheduled to release on 4 September.
After being appreciated in the super hit Love Aaj Kal, Kapoor is all set to captivate audiences with his character driven role in Chintuji where he plays himself Rishi ‘Chintu’ Kapoor.
The film has been produced by Bobby Bedi and written & directed by Ranjit Kapoor.
Kapoor says, "I’m thrilled with this role as this is the first time I have portrayed a character this close to my real personality. I had a ball playing this role and it occupies a very special place in my heart. Despite being an uproarious comedy, the film still manages to remain meaningful and beautifully brings out the satire and emotions. It’s a superb blend of fiction and reality. In the words of one of my Father, Shri Raj Kapoor’s favourite songs – it is “Aadhi Haqeeqat, Aadha fasana."
The film stars Kapoor as the lead protagonist along with Priyanshu Chatterjee, Kulraj Randhawa, Grusha Kapoor and Sourabh Shukla with a special performance by Sophie Choudhary.
