Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone reunite for The Intern
The duo earlier appeared together in Aarakshan and Piku
Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone, who were previously seen together in Aarakshan and Piku, will be once again sharing screen space in The Intern, the Hindi remake of the Hollywood film of the same name.
Deepika and Amitabh will be stepping into the shoes of the characters played by Anne Hathaway and Robert DeNiro, respectively, in the 2015 original.
Welcoming Amitabh Bachchan to the project, Deepika Padukone wrote, “What an absolute honour to be collaborating with one of my most special co-stars again!”
Rishi Kapoor was initially set to star in the film, but his untimely demise in April 2020 obliged the makers to find a replacement.
The film is being directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, best known for directing the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer-Badhaai Ho.
Deepika Padukone-owned Ka Productions is co-producing the film in association with Athena ENM and Warner Bros India.
