Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor came together after 27 years for the announcement of their upcoming film ‘ 102 Not Out’. Amitabh Bachchan plays the father of Rishi Kapoor who is 102 years old and plans to send his son to old age home. Bachchan will be the first father in the history to send his own son to old age home, which is the uniqueness of the story. Film is based on a Gujarati play of the same concept and it will be directed by Oh My God famed director Umesh Shukla who has gathered courage to bring these two cinema legends together.
In the title announcement video, they declared the release date of the film to be 4 May 2018. Bachchan and Kapoor have worked together in some of Hindi cinema’s finest classics such as Amar Akbar Anthony and Naseeb but certainly not as father and son but brothers. Casting of this film describes the evolution of Hindi cinema by portraying the fact that no role is odd enough as long as the script is good and actor is willing to play it. Tonality of the film will be feel good with a pinch of intense drama.
Bachchan and Kapoor are both at their A games despite and especially in their advancing years and have delivered some extra ordinary acts lately in the films like Piku, Pink and Agneepath respectively. Sony pictures has joined hands with Treetop entertainment to bring this story to the dark of cinema theater in front of the audience. Kapoor has been quite vocal off lately about his apparent rivalry with Amitabh Bachchan in 70’s and 80’s where by his own admission most of the actors would not get their due because they were up against a mountain of incredible stardom. Teaser of 102 Not Out will arrive soon to celebrate the most unique father and son relationship.
