There is no greater feeling than watching real-life couples team up for an on-screen project. While our all-time favourite jodi is that of Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in films such as Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani, there are many other Indian cinema pairings that have won the hearts of Bollywood fans. The chemistry that appealed to us the most from yesteryear actors was hands down Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh from their heydays. It must also be noted that the trend of married couples gracing the silver screen together is back. Kajol and Ajay Devgn too will be seen in the upcoming Tanhaji: The Upcoming Warrior. And now, the film reunion of Rishi and Neetu is in the news!

If reports are to be trusted, Rishi and Neetu will reunite for the Bela Seshe remake. The original Bela Seshe was a Bengali family drama film directed by Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee. The Hindi version is slated to be produced by Reliance. “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,” said an insider.

The duo 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,” added the source. According to the grapevine, Rishi will essay the role of Bengali star Soumitra Chatterjee while Neetu will star as Swatilekha Senguptais. Both actors seem to be a suitable choice for the project. Bela Seshe unravels an older couple’s journey with unfulfilled promises and expectations from love and their separation after a four-decade-long relationship. Rishi, whose film The Body releases on December 13, will also start filming for an unfinished untitled Hitesh Bhatia film where he reunites with Juhi Chawla.
