The man who gave us Sholay is all set to take up the directorial reins again. Ramesh Sippy is back on the director’s chair with a film called Shimla Mirchi, and guess who stars in his comeback film? His Seeta Aur Geeta – Hema Malini. The film also has Rajkummar Rao. The actress opposite Rao is yet to finalise.
The film goes on the floor in August and is a sweet, romantic story with its quirky twists. Ramesh Sippy’s cult classic Sholay was released thirty night years back in 1975, when he created the character of Basanti with his favourite actress Hema Malini.
Ramesh Sippy always chose to make diverse films right through his career in spite of he being a blockbuster director, to begin with mature love story Andaz, to comedy Seeta aur Geeta, to an action adventure Sholay, to slick action Shaan to family drama with Shakti to romantic love story Saagar.
Rajkummar Rao opted out of film to be made on Chetan Bhagat‘s Revolution 2020 for Ramesh Sippy‘s upcoming Shimla Mirchi. The cast looks impressive and it would be great to watch a director work with his favourite actress after a long time.
