Legendary director, Ramesh Sippy is going back to the floor with a cool new film that what we hear is a quirky romance. Titled Shimla Mirchi, the film has a very interesting cast that includes one of his favorite heroines.
Ramesh Sippy’s cult classic Sholay was released 39 years ago in 1975. In that film, he created the character of Basanti with his favourite actress Hema Malini. Now, after almost 4 decades, the duo will be working together once again in Shimla Mirchi.
Ramesh Sippy always chose to make diverse films right through his career with many blockbusters to his name. To begin with the mature love story Andaz, to the comedy Seeta aur Geeta, to an action adventure Sholay, to the slick action Shaan to the family drama with Shakti to the romantic love story Saagar. Like many of his films, this new project will follow the path of titles beginning with S.
Along with Hema Malini the film also stars Rajkummar Rao. One interesting fact is that Rajkummar Rao opted out of film to be made of Chetan Bhagat’s Revolution 2020 for Ramesh Sippy’s upcoming Shimla Mirchi.
Going to the floor in August, we can’t wait to hear more about Shimla Mirchi a sweet, romantic story with quirky twists.
