Bollywood’s biggest superstar, also known fondly as Big B by his fans and followers, is to share the screen again with his ‘Piku’ co-star Deepika Padukone in his upcoming film.
The film, which is a re-make of the 2015 Robert De Niro and Anne Hathway starrer, is about a senior citizen joining work or rather re-starting life again as an intern.
Deepika, who has co-produced the film, was earlier slated to co-star with late Rishi Kapoor.
The first-look poster of the upcoming Amitabh Bachchan-Deepika Padukone comedy "The Intern" was launched on Monday.
The bright yellow poster of their new film presents the two stars in silhouette form, walking towards each other.
Sharing the poster on social media, Big B tweeted: "T 3864 - One more time .. Indian Adaptation of #TheIntern. Looking forward to working with @iAmitRSharma @Deepikapadukone @warnerbrosindia @SunirKheterpal @AthenaENM @_KaProductions @ChromePictures @DenzD @Sen_Aleya @hemantchrome @gauravbose_TVW."
The film is directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, whose previous work includes "Badhaai Ho".
