Amitabh Bachchan, the Shehanshah of Bollywood, is all set to play the part of the father to Rishi Kapoor in upcoming flick 102 Not Out to be directed by Umesh Shukla. The first look of the film was released today and it looks interesting. The striking thing seems to be the age of Rishi Kapoor (75 years) and Amitabh Bachchan, who will be playing an old man of 102 years.
It’s after a long gap of 26 years that Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan will be working together in a film. As director Umesh Shukla says:
“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.”
“I had produced the original play and knew it could be turned into a film for its unique plot and humour. Saumya has written the film brilliantly.”
