Deepika shared a poster on Instagram to announce the film. She wrote, “What an absolute honour to be collaborating with one of my most special co-star again! Welcoming @amitabhbachchan to the Indian adaptation of #TheIntern.”
The Intern is a 2015 comedy-drama, which starred Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway in lead roles. The film was written and produced by Nancy Meyers. The film revolved around the story of a 70-year-old man (De Niro), who becomes a senior intern at an online fashion website. Anne Hathaway, who plays the role of the company’s CEO, forms an unlikely friendship with De Niro’s character. The film received mixed reviews.
Big B and Deepika have worked together in Shoojit Sircar’s 2015 film Piku. They played the role of a father and daughter in the film. Their bonding was much appreciated by critics and the audience.
