Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor have done a number of movies together before and after their marriage. The couple was last seen together in the 2013 film Besharam which also starred their son Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role. The latest we hear that the duo is set to join forces once again.

According to reports, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor will be reuniting for the Hindi remake of superhit Bengali film Bela Seshe (2015). Helmed by Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee, the original film had an ensemble cast, including Soumitra Chatterjee, Swatilekha Sengupta and Rituparna Sengupta, among others. Reliance Entertainment has come onboard to bankroll the Hindi remake.

Spilling some details, a source close to the development says, “The couple has agreed to be a part of the film, and this will be the first new film that they will do together after appearing in Besharam with son Ranbir Kapoor. They acted together for the first time in the 1974 film Zehreela Insaan and were last seen in the 1980 film Dhan Daulat. So, as such they will be seen playing the lead pair after three decades on screen.”

Rishi Kapoor will reprise the role that prominent Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee played in the original film, while Neetu Singh has been roped in to essay the character that Swatilekha Sengupta played to perfection. Casting for other important characters is still underway.

We have learnt that Rishi Kapoor’s role was earlier offered to Nana Patekar, who even signed the film on the dotted line. However, he had to walk out of the project following sexual harassment allegations levelled against him by actress and former beauty queen Tanushree Dutta. After Nana Patekar’s exit, Reliance Entertainment signed Rishi Kapoor for the role, followed by Neeti Singh for another prominent role in the film. More details are awaited.
