Have we seen Amitabh Bachchan experimenting with roles? More often than not! And continuing to entertain the audiences even today, Amitabh Bachchan is getting into the comedy zone for 102 Not Out. He plays a fun father to none other than Rishi Kapoor.
The Amar Akbar Anthony brother Jodi will now return to the big screen as father-son. In the past, we have seen Amitabh Bachchan riding some of the coolest vehicles like in Sholay we saw him riding a cool bike, in Don it was a Mushtang. Amongst the recent ones, we saw him riding a cycle in Piku. Now 102 Not Out is just taking a step ahead in that direction.
For a scene in the film, the actor was required to take a public transport from one location to another. And being the sport that he is, he immediately hopped into the rickshaw and did the shoot. Even though there was a lot of crowd that had gathered to watch the actor shoot, the crew made sure that the shoot was not disrupted. The fans, who had come watch the megastar, were also not disappointed. We hear that they were more than happy to get a glimpse of their superstar.
Talking about the same, director Umesh Shukla said, “At first we were hesitant as the shape of a rickshaw is quite small and we wondered if Mr. Bachchan would be comfortable given his tall stature and 6’2 height. However when we conveyed this to him, he insisted on travelling in the rickshaw and was quite enthusiastic too. In fact, he was reliving his young days! The entire day we shot in the rickshaw.”
A Sony Pictures Releasing International Production and worldwide distribution- 102 Not Out is produced by SPE Films India, Treetop Entertainment and Umesh Shukla’s Benchmark Pictures. The film is slated to release on May 4.
