Commenting on the production of the film, a source close to the development told Bollywood Hungama, “The Hindi remake of The Intern hit a massive roadblock with the demise of Rishi Kapoor. This suddenly meant that the venture was missing a crucial member of the cast, and the makers had to re-analyse the casting. Though it has taken a while, the makers of The Intern remake have now locked Amitabh Bachchan for the project and are looking to resume the shoot soon.”

Ask for more details about the same and the source adds, “Amitabh Bachchan has been cast to reprise the role that would have been played by Rishi Kapoor. Though it is unclear when the film will finally commence shooting, talks are on with the cast members to finalize dates.”

Talking about Amitabh’s Brahmastra, the release date of the movie has been delaying.

There seems to have been some delay because of Ranbir Kapoor contracting covid. Read here about the speculations of the release date of the movie.
