Bachchan will star alongside Padukone in the film, which originally starred Rishi Kapoor, who died last April after a two-year battle with cancer. After the critical success of 2015’s “Piku,” the two actors reunite in “The Intern.”
The film will be directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma of “Badhaai Ho!” fame. Padukone, who is also producing the film with Sunir Khetarpal, announced Bachchan’s casting on Instagram on Monday.
“What a pleasure it is to collaborate with one of my most special co-stars once more!” “Welcome to the Indian adaptation of #TheIntern, @amitabhbachchan,” the actor-producer captioned her tweet.
Bachchan, who previously starred in 2019’s “Badla,” an Indian remake of 2016’s “The Invisible Guest,” said he is excited to collaborate with the cast and crew.
He tweeted alongside a poster for the film, “One more time. Indian Adaptation of #TheIntern.” The original film, directed by Nancy Meyers, starred Robert De Niro as a 70-year-old widower who works as a senior intern at an online fashion website, where he develops an unlikely relationship with the company’s workaholic CEO (Anne Hathaway).
“The Intern,” distributed by Warner Bros. worldwide, was a box office hit, grossing USD 195 million. Meyers also acted as the film’s writer and director.
The adapted screenplay and dialogues for the forthcoming Indian version are credited to Akshat Ghidiyal and Mitesh Shah. Along with Padukone’s Ka Productions, Athena ENM and Warner Bros India are co-producing the film. As a co-producer, Chrome Pictures is involved. The film will be released in the summer of 2022, according to the producers.
