Rishi Kapoor revealed on Twitter that he will be working with Amitabh Bachchan after a very long time. He tweeted, “Always a pleasure and an honour to work with him. Started reading the script with the team. For further details ,stay tuned!!!”
Many started guessing for which movie would they be teaming up. And again, Rishi tweeted yesterday, “Wonderful to work again with the Legendary Amitabh Bachchan. Thank you Amitji, it never felt the 26 years old hiatus.We connected instantly!”
Now, as per a leading daily, the two legends are all set to be seen in 102 Not Out as father and son. Yes, Big B will play 102-year old father while Chintu Ji will be playing the role of his 75-year-old son.
The movie is based on writer-director Saumya Joshi’s successful Gujarati play by the same name. The director of the film Umesh Shukla stated, “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.”
The team has been shooting in Mumbai and will continue to do so until the end of the month. Then, they will be resuming in the month of July and are planning to wrap it by July-end. Umesh further added, “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.”
Amit Ji and Rishi will be seen speaking a few lines in Gujarati in the film and have started working on their diction. Umesh concluded by saying, “They are already good with the language and have a tutor on the set to guide them. All of us are having a blast. Both are extremely dedicated actors and have their own methods of working. We did a three-four days workshop last month and it was so much fun!”
