The co-producer added that the makers have shot a major portion of the film in Delhi. The remaining part of the film just requires a four-day schedule which they may resume after the lockdown. Rishi Kapoor was playing the main character in the film and hence the climax scenes were crucial to be shot. However, due to the sudden demise of the actor, this portion is also left unfinished. The makers have mentioned that they will be using advanced technology and VFX along with a bunch of special techniques to finish the film without compromising on the quality of the movie. The makers also mentioned that they are in serious talks with a few VFX companies and wish to find out a solution as soon as possible. The film Sharmaji Namkeen was expected to release in December; however, things may get pushed forward due to shooting schedule renewal and the VFX portion as well, according to a news portal.
