'Sharmaji Namkeen' will be released on Amazon Prime Video on March 31

'Sharmaji Namkeen' is all set to release on Amazon Prime Video on March 31. Ever since the release of its trailer, the film has become the talk of the town. The Hitesh Bhatia-directorial has the right amount of humour, entertainment, and emotional quotient and comes with an ensemble cast that include two legendary actors: Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal.

Hitesh shared his thoughts on how he decided to make a movie based on life after retirement. In an exclusive conversation with Editorji, Hitesh said, "It is a story of millions of people across the globe. There is a common pattern in their stories which needs to get a voice," he told Editorji.

He further added that there is no age to find one's true passion. He said, "If one finds his/her true passion after retirement, in 60s or 70s then one must pursue it with all their heart."

Speaking about what elements he considered while writing the script, Hitesh said that his take on "life is optimistic" which became a defining factor when he wrote the script.

The writer-director also shared his experience of working with a stellar cast of 'Sharmaji Namkeen'. He said, "I am lucky to work with three phenomenal actors in his first film like Rishi Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, and Juhi Chawal. It is great learning for me."

Hitesh added that 'Sharmaji Namkeen' was a great learning experience for him. On Rishi Kapoor's sudden death, he said that "it was a tough time. Moreover, it was a difficult call to get another actor". However, they were lucky to have Paresh Rawal join the cast, he concluded.
