‘Old Is Gold – 102 Not Out’

102 Not Out is an upcoming Hindi-language Indian comedy-drama film directed by Umesh Shukla and starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in the lead roles.The film is based on the eponymous Gujarati play written by Saumya Joshi. The film is planned for worldwide release on 4 May 2018.

The film’s plot is based on a Gujarati Play by the same name. Amitabh Bachchan will play a 102-year-old man and Rishi Kapoor will play his 75-year-old son.The plot revolves around the 102-year-old man trying to break the record for the oldest person in the world, held in the movie by a Chinese Man.

Both the actors talked at length and couldn’t stop praising one another. Big B said, “The reason why we are here together is that we have a history of films together and it’s been a great honour to work with Rishi once again,” to which Rishi added, “I have learnt a lot from Amitabh Ji and his craft of acting. He flirts with the character he plays as he works himself into the character. This is his craft.”

Director Umesh Shukla states that it would take his ageing protagonists a staggering seven hours for make-up every day. This would be followed by six hours of shooting. He says, “Initially, I thought they would get irritated with the long-winded process but the make-up actually helped them emote and complemented their characters really well. Both Amitabh sir and Rishi ji would walk onto the sets at 5 am with a different kind of energy and we would commence shooting after lunch and go on till 6 pm. At times, the shoot extended to 9 pm. But that mostly happened when we were in the midst of shooting a scene and wanted to can it in one shift for the sake of continuity,” says Umesh adding that the film’s team shot for nine nights in the 45-day schedule in Mumbai.
