Not many films are made on senior citizens. Asked why there isn’t much representation of senior citizens in films, Amitabh, 75, recently said: “Senior citizens are very respectable people of our society. If they are not there, we are not there. Whenever we try to make a film on them, we treat them with dignity. I hope that through this film, we will be able to convey the message to our audience.”
Adding to that, Rishi said: “He (Amitabh) did films like Piku and Pink. Yes, there are not many films made on senior citizens but there are not many Bachchans around, right?”
102 Not Out, directed by Umesh Shukla, released on May 4.
