102 Not Out director impressed by Big B, Rishi Kapoor's passion
The film features Amitabh as a 102-year-old man and Rishi plays his 75-year-old son; both actors have had to use prosthetics for their roles
Umesh Shukla, who is directing Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in 102 Not Out, says the passion and perfection of the veteran actors is commendable.
The film features Amitabh as a 102-year-old man, while Rishi essays his 75-year-old son. They have had to use prosthetics to get their looks right. "Sometimes, when so much make-up is done before the shoot, one gets tired, but with these people (Amitabh and Rishi), they never show it... Forget about showing, it doesn't even seem they are tired. Both actors are so passionate about their work that they don't like it if a shot is not well done. They see to it that there's perfection," says the filmmaker.
Shukla, known for directing Oh My God, says while all actors have their own way of working, it's good to work with those who are committed towards their work.
He says his experience of working with Rishi has also been wonderful, and there were no temper issues on the set. "We have a good friendship. Whatever small problems are there, they are issue-based and never personal. He's a lovely person to work with," Shukla says of the actor who is popular on social media for his temperament.
Big B had earlier this week said he has finished shooting 102 Not Out. The editing and dubbing is going on, Shukla says, adding that they are yet to decide on a release date for the film.
