Sony Pictures International Productions, India has boarded filmmaker Mr. Umesh Shukla for an ageless comedy 102 Not Out. Not only this, the project is going to bring the two Bollywood legends, Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor, as a father-son duo, for the very first time.
Billed as the most unusual father and son love story, 102 Not Out is slated to release worldwide on 4th May 2018. The film is based on playwright Saumya Joshi’s well-known Gujarati play by the same name and has been adapted into a feature by him.
Talking about the film, Amitabh Bachchan, who plays the role of 102-year-old man stated:
“Teaming up with Chintu ji after so many years..after so many successful historic films, has been the greatest joy during ‘102 Not Out’ .. a novel story, competent direction, and a most qualified crew, has made the experience even greater .. I know the country loves the younger, fresh and vibrant new generation – as must it should deservedly , but who ever said the ‘oldies’ are not capable to do similar..we know you may not love us, but given a chance we shall not disappoint you either .. and that is as immodest as I can get .. BADUMBAAAAAAAAA!!!”
Rishi Kapoor, who plays the 75-year-old son of Mr. Bachchan in the film, added:
“Being in 102 Not Out brought back a lot of fond memories and fun I have shared with Amitji during my younger days. I am glad to reunite with him on such a special and unusual film. It will definitely delight our fans!”
The film’s teaser will be launched worldwide with PadMan that releases on February 9th, 2018.
