Umesh Shukla, who is directing Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in upcoming movie, ‘102 Not Out,’ said the passion and perfection in which the veteran stars conduct themselves is commendable.
The movie features Bachchan as a 102-year-old man, while Kapoor plays his 75-year-old son. They had to use a great deal of prosthetics to get their look right, reports Times of India. “Sometimes, what happens is that 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,” Shukla said. He went on to say, “They see to it that there’s perfection.”
Shukla, known for directing ‘Oh My God’ (2012), said while all stars have their own way of working, it’s good to work with them when they are committed towards his work. He said his experience of working with Kapoor has also been wonderful, and there were no temper issues on the set.
“He (Rishi) has never done like that. We have a good friendship. Whatever small problems are there, they are issue-based and never personal. It is because these people are coming with an experience. So if they don’t find that same passion, they have the right to correct it. He’s a lovely person to work with,” Shukla said of the actor, who is popular on social media for his temperament.
Bachchan had earlier this week said he has finished shooting ‘102 Not Out’. The editing and dubbing is currently in progress, according to Shukla, before adding that they are yet to decide a release date for the movie.
