Mumbai: Umesh Shukla’s upcoming family drama, All Is Well brings together Rishi Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan for the first time as father and son. Though the two actors have worked together in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Delhi 6, it’s for the first time they will be sharing more screen space in T-Series and Allchemy Film Productions’ All Is Well.
The film’s trailer received humongous response on the social media and people couldn’t stop raving about Rishi Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan’s effortlessly chemistry. “It is our personal connection that visibly shows on screen,” says Rishi. Abhishek, on his part, feels that beyond a point, no actor is so good that he can fake great camaraderie with his colleague. “There has to be some genuine love and respect. That ensures their camaraderie goes to the next level. We’re professionals, after all, who land up on set to work together. Even if two actors can’t stand each other’s guts, there should be no way of finding that out. That’s what acting is all about. But when there is a film about relationships, a real-life equation will always show on screen,” says he.
The movie that releases on August 21, talks about how the communication gap takes precedence over the generation gap. “This story is no rocket science, but Umesh has intelligently added that value system in a modern set-up. This film tells it all very entertainingly, without preaching. We might be squabbling all through the film, but there is a lovable quality to our repartee. You don’t mind their love-hate relationship because you relate to them, you feel for them,” says Rishi Kapoor.
The talented actor duo – Rishi and Abhishek admits that the film’s shooting was a blast. “I would have coffee in his van while he would drink his tea and we would chill together,” says Abhishek. Ask if he got scolded by Rishi Kapoor while on set, and he says, “All we did was gang up and bully Umesh on set. That sweet, accommodating guy was our favourite prey.”
Produced by T-Series and Allchemy Film Productions’ All Is Well is scheduled to release 21st August 2015.
