Veteran actors Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi kapoor will be seen coming together in Sudhir Mishra۪s ‘Mehrunissa’.
Both actors have worked together in films like ‘Kabhi Kabhi’ (1976), ‘Naseeb’ (1981), ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ (1977) , ‘Ajooba’ (1991) and were last seen on screen together in the film ‘Coolie’ (1983). Sources report that there is a possibility, the actors’ sons Abhishek Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor will also be part of the film playing the younger versions of their fathers.
Rumours are that Mishra had considered Chitrangda Singh, Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra and even Deepika Padukone to play the female lead. However, the director is apparently still contemplating on who should play his lead heroine and is looking for someone who could convincingly romance both Bachchan and Kapoor.
‘Mehrunissa’ is a story about two friends who go separate ways and call their friendship quits. Their friendship is divided as a result of a woman entering their lives.
