Trailer of Rajkkumar Rao’s 'Shimla Mirchi' Is Out
Rajkummar Rao is one of the few actors in Bollywood who has left his mark in all the genres of movies that he worked in. Be it Newton, Omerta, Bareilly Ki Barfi or Stree, this actor has never left his fans down with his acting skills. Now, he is back again with a new movie to tickle your funny bones! Pairing up with Rakul Preet Singh and the ‘Dreamgirl’ of Bollywood, Hema Malini, Rajkummar’s upcoming movie is quirkily titled Shimla Mirchi.
The trailer shows Rajkummar’s character Avi struggling to express his feelings in front of his Naina (played by Rakul Preet). After failing to express his love for Naina, he decides to write the best love letter ever.
Things take a funny turn thereon as things don't go as planned and the letter ends up in the hands of the Naina's mother (played by Hema Malini) instead, who ends up falling for Avi instead. It would be safe to say that this movie is going to be a laughing riot!
It is interesting to note that the shooting of the film was completed a couple of years ago as it went on floors in 2014.
The film is being helmed by veteran director Ramesh Sippy, who is famous for directing classic movies like Sholay, Andaz and Seeta Aur Geeta (which also starred Hema Malini). He would be returning to the director’s chair after almost 25 years! His last release as a director was Zamaana Deewana in 1995.
Shimla Mirchi also features Shakti Kapoor and Kanwaljit Singh.
Rajkummar has had three major releases this year - Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, Judgementall Hai Kya and Made In China. Rakul too, had a successful year in the Hindi film industry with the release of one-hit film, De De Pyaar De with Ajay Devgn and Tabu.
The movie is slated to hit the silver screen on January 3, 2020.
