MUMBAI: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor have worked in several films together and their pair has been appreciated very much. They first worked together 44 years ago in ‘Kabhi Kabhi’, and after that, in ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Naseeb’, ‘Coolie’ and ‘Ajooba’. This time they are coming together in Umesh Shukla’s 102 Not Out.
Recently, In an interview with a leading daily, Amitabh Bachchan shared his experience of working with Rishi Kapoor again after all these years. He said, “We are professionals and artistes. We love our job and the movie that we are doing. Our job on the set is to accomplish what we are asked to do. And if we know the actors personally and if we have worked with them before, there is a sense of comfort. So, having worked with him in so many films before, there is no question of not feeling comfortable.
He was all praise for Rishi Kapoor in the interview and said, “Chintuji is a tremendous artiste. One thing I appreciate the most about him is that I have never seen any other artiste lip-sync a song the way he does, he is brilliant at it. You can actually feel that he is singing the song. It is very difficult to do, as half the time, we are trying to remember our steps and the lyrics, and we forget about focusing on our facial expressions. Chintuji is immaculate at lip-synching. And Ranbir does it the same way; when he sings a song, you can’t find a fault in it.”
