While the Khans may still be ruling over Bollywood and promising new actors continue entering the film fraternity, it has been difficult for veteran actors to hold their ground. However, legends like Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor have managed to adapt to the changes in the industry despite their ups and downs. The two will soon be seen on the big screen in 102 Not Out.
Earlier today, Big B released the first official poster of the unusual father-son comedy.

The veteran actors created quite a buzz when they revealed their first looks from the movie. With Amitabh Bachchan playing a centenarian and Rishi Kapoor playing his 75 years old son. It is quite a rare sight for a Bollywood movie to have senior citizens as the main characters.

The film will see Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor together sharing the screen after 27 years. The two were paired in many classics like Amar Akbar Anthony, Kabhie Kabhie, Coolie and Naseeb. They were last seen together in Ajooba in 1991. While the audience has seen them both act as fathers to younger actors in films, it will be a fun twist to see the two legends as a father-son duo.
102 Not Out is based on a Gujarati Play of the same name, written by Saumya Joshi. The film has been directed by Umesh Shukla, and is scheduled to release on May 4, 2018.
