Earlier, Rishi Kapoor was set to be cast in Bachchan's role, and following his demise, the latter was roped in. When the announcement was made, Twitter definitely had some thoughts-- some people rejoiced, some were skeptical, and some were just praying for Bollywood to not ruin the classic.
The duo was last seen together in Shoojit Sircar's Piku (2015) that also starred Irrfan Khan.
