Last year, we heard some super exciting news about Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro‘s 2015 film ‘The Intern’ getting an official Hindi remake. Deepika Padukone and Rishi Kapoor were set to play the lead cast, but due to veteran actor Rishi Kapoor’s unfortunate demise, the makers of the film put it on hold.

Now, news is that Amitabh Bachchan is set to reprise Robert De Niro’s role as a retired gentleman who decides to intern in a new-age digital company that is headed by Deepika Padukone’s character.

Bollywood Hungama quotes a source as saying that Rishi Ji’s death had caused the film to be put on hold and the makers had to re-analyse the casting. Now, the source adds that they have finally zeroed in on Amitabh Bachchan and that talks are on to finalise the dates with the cast members.

We all loved DP and Amit Ji‘s magical and effortless camaraderie in Piku, amirite? This time around, we know they are stepping into two characters who are also attached by a lovely, sweet bond and I cannot wait to see the magic they create on-screen together!
