This one will bring back memories for a few people who grew up in the late 60’s and 70’s! Shakti Kapoor is all geared up for his next movie, ‘Shimla Mirchi’. Director Ramesh Sippy has done a good job keeping the project under wraps. The movie also stars Bollywood Dreamgirl Hema Malini. Shakti Kapoor was all excited about working with her after a long time!
Shakti Kapoor and Hema Malini have continued to enthrall the audience for long and this time, they are to work together yet again. After sharing the screen space with her in unforgettable movies like Satte Pe Satta, Naseeb and Phaansi Ke Baad. Nearly 29 years later, they are working together. It was a grand re-union for them! Pretty long time!
Shakti Kapoor says, “We last worked in Phaansi Ke Baad and there isn`t much difference in her today. She still looks like an angel and is very humble.”
In between shoots, they would spend an awful lot of time talking to each other about their earlier days. She was even appreciative of his daughter Shradha Kapoor for her magnum opus role in Aashiqui 2. She thought that its good to see her take up challenging roles so early in her career and went on to say that she is “the prettiest girl on the circuit”. Well we do agree with this statement!
They all had a lot of fun on the sets as the crew was telling us. Shakti Kapoor being an inveterate funny-man, he would have the entire crew in splits with his jokes and timely repartee. Sometimes, he would even go to the extent of enacting a few of their old funny incidents while shooting. Many of the crew members say that he is a gentleman and one of the most respected seniors of the film fraternity, but he is still young at heart and a thorough entertainer.
Shakti Kapoor and Hema Malini both have pivotal roles in Simla Mirchi and with Ramesh Sippy as the skipper of the ship, the movie is touted to be next year`s blockbuster! We just can’t wait to see them back on-screen!
