Rishi Kapoor starrer ‘Rajma Chawal’ has hit a roadblock. The film which was supposed to release on 31st August is still in post production. A release date is yet to be fixed, and could reportedly be because of the star cast.
As according to SKJ Bollywood News, ‘Rajma Chawal’ director Leena Yadav said, “We are not ready for release. We are into the post-production of our film. We are just between the sound mix and the colour correction. Hopefully, we will release soon.”
A source says that films with older actors taking the lead do not work well. “Films with older protagonists playing the lead do not have a market. Rishi Kapoor is a fine actor. But Kapoor & Sons didn’t become a success because of him. There were young favourites like Alia Bhatt, Siddharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan in Kapoor & Sons, whereas the recent Mulk which had no major star and Rishi Kapoor in the lead, didn’t do as well as expected in spite of excellent reviews. Barring Amitabh Bachchan no 60-plus actor sells at the box-office Look at Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam 2 and Anil Kapoor’s Fanney Khan. Both disasters.”
Kapoor was last seen with Taapsee Pannu in ‘Mulk’ (2018).
