#102NotOut features Amitabh as a 102-year-old and Rishi as his 75-year-old son... Based on Saumya Joshi’s Gujarati play by the same name.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) 19 May 2017
The film will be directed by Umesh Shukla, who has earlier directed Rishi Kapoor in All Is Well (2015). He has also helmed Akshay Kumar-starrer Oh My God and the casting of his next will make you say just that!
A days back, Rishi Kapoor took to his Twitter and wrote, "Wonderful to work again with the Legendary Amitabh Bachchan. Thank you Amitji, it never felt (like) the 26 years old hiatus. We connected instantly."

The duo last worked together in 1991 in Ajooba, which was directed by Shashi Kapoor and Gennadiy Vasilev. However, they have worked together in a number of cult films like Amar Akbar Anthony, Kabhie Kabhie and Coolie- all of them were directed by Manmohan Desai.
It’s indeed interesting to see them pair again as Rishi Kapoor had recently expressed a few words of disappointment for Amitabh Bachchan while releasing his autobiography. In a chapter he has spoken about his lingering issues with Big B. “A big disadvantage of working in an all-star movie in those days was that everybody only wanted to make action films, which automatically meant that the star who could carry off action with the most flair would get the meatiest part. That's how, with the exception of Kabhi Kabhie, which was a romantic film, none of the multi-starrers I featured in had an author-backed role for me. Directors and writers unfailingly reserved their strongest, pivotal roles for Amitabh Bachchan. And it wasn't just me. Shashi Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Dharmendra, Vinod Khanna faced it too," the veteran mentioned in his autobiography- Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Uncensored.
And now to see him work again with Amitabh Bachchan after 26 years, we hope Rishiji has solved his lingering issues with him.
