Sharmaji Namkeen Story Plot

Sharmaji Namkeen tells the story of a recently retired widower, who begins moonlighting as a cook at private parties to keep himself occupied, much to the disapproval of his elder son. While Sharmaji goes about his secret life, he realises that his son is also keeping things from him. Their drained relationship, and their desire to mend it, forms the emotional core of the film.

Interesting Facts of Sharmaji Namkeen

Those who have watched the movie can notice that the film is not shot chronologically and it sometimes shows Rishi Kapoor as Sharmaji while on the other scene you will see Paresh Rawal as Sharmaji.

It is because Kapoor, one of Hindi films’ most resilient stars, died after a two-year battle with cancer in April 2020. This was during the first lockdown, when all film shoots had been indefinitely suspended. Kapoor had already commenced work on Sharmaji Namkeen, but his cancer had returned after he signed on. So he could’nt complete the movie and later Paresh Rawal resumed his place and continued the shooting of leftover scenes. Makers of the movie find it the most appropriate option available for them.
