102 Not Out, featuring Amitabh Bachchan And Rishi Kapoor is schduled to release on December 1, clashing with Vidya Balan-starer Tumhari Sulu.
Amitabh Bachchan is playing the role of a 102 year old man in this film. Another senior Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor is playing the role of 75 year old son to Amitabh Bachchan. It is interesting to see 102 year old daddy and 75 year old son in the lead roles of a mainstream Bollywood film. In 102 Not Out, Big B plays a happy-go-lucky character named Dattaraya Vakharia while Rishi Kapoor features as Babu. This film is based on Gujarati play written by Saumya Joshi. ‘Queen’ fame Umesh Shukla is the director of this film.
It is not for the first time that these actors are taking tough roles, earlier Amitabh Bachchan’s did a similar role in the 2009 release Paa where he played a 12-year-old suffering from progeria, a rare genetic disorder making him look considerably older. Rishi Kapoor also played the role of a grandfather in the 2016 release Kapoor and Sons.
