Film maker Umesh Shukla, who is famous to have given films such as ‘OMG: Oh My God!’ ‘All is Well’ and more is looking forward to his next project. The actor turned director shared about his forthcoming movie starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor.

Director Umesh Shukla began his career in the Indian film industry as an actor. Sharing about that he says, “Yes, I got bored of acting. I did not prefer sitting for long hours in the makeup van wearing make it was a great torture. Also since I was associated with theatre, so slowly and gradually I felt directing was much more challenging as we had to live all the character r portrayed in the story. It feels as if the entire film is your baby conceived and thus you have the duty of delivering it to the best of your ability. Therefore between acting and direction I chose to direct films and I a enjoying the same.”

When asked if Umesh was intimidated by Amitabh Bachchan on sets? He said, “No not at all. Because he is such a brilliant actor and a good human being that he made me comfortable made me before the shoot .He never imposed like that he is Amitabh Bachchan, even during the reading he was always the character Dattatray Jagjeeven Vaghariya in front of me.”

“The thought of casting both of them together when we were doing this play and the character of 102 was being written I was thinking like in our film. ‘OMG’ had an universal concept and in this film (102 Not Out) also I felt like the universal touch. Unique selling point was we see a father of 75 years and the kid is 65. We have never seen such a father–son relationship who is 102 who wishes to make the record of living for most of years, like the oldest Chinese man who always prefers being surrounded by positive aspect of life and shun negativity. This character is similar to this Chinese man who also lived for most of his years of life here. He decides to send his son to who is 65 years old, to old age home….I narrated him the hook and within ten minutes Amitabh ji told me the hook line is enough as narration,” Umesh says.

He also talked about Rishi’s temper, Umesh says, “He is such a dear friend. I am acquainted to Rishi ji from my first film ‘All is Well’ that I did with him in which he played Abhishek Bachchan’s son. People say he has temper. He gets angry only if you are unable to answer his questions as he needs all logical answers …Rishi is my friend now. He would call me up even when he had gone on a holiday to London.”

Audience is looking forward to watch the sequel and Umesh is thrilled to present his new film soon.
