Rishi Kapoor-starrer Rajma Chawal, directed by Leena Yadav, will hit the screens on August 31.
“Funny, we live in the space age generation, yet fail to communicate with people that matter the most? Experience the social journey of a father and son with Rajma Chawal, this 31st August,” Yadav tweeted on Thursday.
Directed by Parched fame Leena Yadav, the film will feature Rishi as the father and debutant Anirudh Tanwar as his son. It will also have Amyra Dastur.

In an earlier interview, Rishi spoke about what tempted him to take up Rajma Chawal. “I wanted to work with Leena. I liked the ambience and where the story was being told -- the whole beauty of Chandni Chowk. I did it once with Delhi-6... The triumph of this project is that we are shooting the whole film in Chandni Chowk,” said Rishi.
He further said, “As a kid, I remember going to Jama Masjid and eating lots of food here. If you ask me, I would dare (any actor) to come in here with these kind of people -- if any actor will come here, he will be mobbed. But here, the arrangements are terrific and the people of Chandni Chowk have been really cooperative. They have been very nice and lovely. They are also helping us in shooting and are even working as extras. We have shot a lot outside too on streets.”
