Since their characters are Gujarati, the duo was not allowed to wear footwear in the scenes that were shot inside the house. Well, the fact is that, Gujaratis in general do not wear footwear in the house. Hence, director Umesh Shukla wanted to make sure that the actors don’t wear any slippers inside the house so that their characters get are real as possible.
Talking about the same, the filmmaker said, “We Gujaratis don’t have the habit of wearing footwear inside the house. So I wanted Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor also to not wear any footwear during the shoot. I was in two minds about if I should ask them or not. However, when I discussed the same with them, they instantly agreed with me.”
Well, considering that they are veterans in this field, we are aware that their dedication will definitely be notches higher! Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor are coming together after over two decades. The highly anticipated 102 Not Out, written by Saumya Joshi, is based on a Gujarati play.
