Bollywood icons Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor took a trip down memory lane on Thursday evening as they took part in a very special event at Mumbai’s Royal Opera House.
The stellar duo, who are the stars of Umesh Shukla’s upcoming film, 102 Not Out spent the evening interacting with the media, reliving infamous moments from their earlier movies together such as the dazzling 1977 film Amar Akbar Anthony, which won Bachchan the award for Best Actor, and the hilarious 1981 action comedy Naseeb.
Those lucky enough to be in attendance at the glorious Opera House were not left disappointed, as the actors continued to show why they have been so loved and admired for many years, sharing many heart-warming anecdotes that brought smiles on everyone’s faces.
102 Not Out will be the first film both legends have appeared in together for 27 years, and both actors were full of praise for one another with Bachchan describing working with Kapoor “a great honour”.
On a night full of beautiful nostalgia, the actors talked about the magic they have created on-screen, with the two being quizzed about each other’s acting skills with Kapoor saying that “has learnt a lot from [Amitabh] and his craft of acting” and he still continues to learn from him.
Both actors continued to make the audience laugh as time flew by. In light of the event, Rishi Kapoor tweeted about the event and shared a joke that Bachchan wanted to go and watch the cricket so ended the conversation early!
