In 2015, Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway starred in a film titled The Intern. The movie was about a 70-year-old man who plans to do an internship in a firm after getting retired. Now, the movie is being remade in Hindi with Rishi Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles.
The actress took to Twitter to announce the film. She posted, Thrilled to present my next!? The Indian adaptation of #TheIntern A 2021 release! Presented by @_kaproductions @warnerbrosindia and @iamazureent See you at the movies! #RishiKapoor.”
Deepika, who will also be co-producing the film, said, “The Intern is an intimate relationship-driven film set in and around the workplace; a story that I believe is very relevant to the present-day social and cultural environment. I have been looking for a light, breezy comedy-drama and this story fits in seamlessly. I cannot wait to begin this journey.”
While talking about the movie, Rishi Kapoor said, “The Intern is a very relevant film for the present-day Indian workplace milieu and it showcases human relationships beautifully. I am very excited to be working with Deepika and being a part of this heart-warming story. It is great that Warner Bros. and AZURE are officially making this film in India.”
Sunir Kheterpal of AZURE Entertainment said, “We are thankful to Warner Bros. and Nancy Meyers for entrusting us with the first-ever adaptation of The Intern outside of the US. Between Rishi Sir and Deepika, we have the perfect talent package to adapt this endearing film.”
The remake is also titled as The Intern and it will hit the screens in 2021. It will surely be interesting to watch Rishi Kapoor and Deepika Padukone on the big screen together. The two have worked together earlier in the film Love Aaj Kal.
