Veteran actors Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor will share screen space after a gap of 26 years in Umesh Shukla’s 102 Not Out. And guess what? The two stars will play the role of father and son with Big B as the 102-year-old father and Rishi as his 75-year-old son.
The film, which is an adaptation of writer-director Saumya Joshi’s successful Gujarati play of the same name, revolves around the story of a man — played by Amitabh — who tries to break the record of being the oldest man alive in the world.
“Amitji and Rishiji are collaborating after 26 years. They are playing Gujarati characters for the first time. Being a Gujarati myself, I had certain references in my mind which we used to create their look,” said Umesh in a report in Mumbai Mirror.
Talking about working with the legends, he added: “Both are extremely dedicated actors and have their own method of working. We did a three-four days workshop last month and it was so much fun!”
The film’s first look is already out and it certainly looks interesting. Shooting for 102 Not Out began on Wednesday with an introductory sequence by Amitabh.
