After an impressive year at the box office, with the successful 102 Not Out and the critically acclaimed Mulk, Rishi Kapoor surprised fans that he was heading to the USA for medical reasons. As the veteran was under treatment for close to a year, he went less active on a platform he was always on fire at, Twitter, but at the same time, stars from the film industry visiting him in the USA had kept his well-wishers aware about his health. The Agneepath star coming back to the bay recently and also to the microblogging platform had delighted his fans. Now, Rishi Kapoor is also returning to acting after a while; he has signed a film opposite Juhi Chawla, titled Sharmaji Namkeen. Not just the two veterans, the movie has other major names associated with it, like Farhan Akhtar-Ritesh Sidhwani and Abhishek Chaubey.
