The poster for the film 102 NOT OUT was released today which stars Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor, the film is based on a Gujarati play of the same name.
Amitabh is set to play the 102 year old father to the 75 year old character of Rishi Kapoor in the drama comedy, and they are set to pair after more than two decades with their last film together being Ajooba.
Rishi Kapoor described in his autobiography that working with Amitabh Bachchan had its ups and downs but they connected instantly while reading the script with the team.
The poster shows Amitabh standing beside Rishi Kapoor in the poster who is about to hatch out of an egg, a clever play on the coming-of-age idiom. The poster also reveals the light hearted tagline ‘baap cool, beta old school’ which probably reveals the carefree attitude of Amitabh’s character and the cautious and careful character portrayed by Rishi Kapoor, with a water color background which embodies the light hearted feel of the film.
Director Umesh Shukla who delivered OMG: OH MY GOD! is set to direct with playwright stepping in to write the film.
The plot revolves around Amitabh’s character trying to beat the record for the oldest living person which is held by a Chinese man.
102 NOT OUT is produced by SPE Films India, Treetop Entertainment and Shukla’s Benchmark Pictures. The film releases worldwide on May 4, 2018.
