The Badhaai Ho director, who is now working on Ajay Devgn’s major football movie Maidaan, will next direct a Hindi remake of the Robert De Niro-Anne Hathaway romcom from 2015. The Intern is a film about a 70-year-old man who is looking for work after retirement in a company run by a successful young female entrepreneur. Amir Sharma said that It’s too soon to discuss The Intern. He is currently engrossed in Maidaan. The whole team just completed one training session with Thai footballers. And then it’s on to the next match, which will be in a few days.`
In the meantime, Amit said, The Intern’s screenplay is being adapted. It’s being written right now. His version of The Intern will not be a carbon copy of the original. What good is redoing a movie if you can’t make it go in a different direction? As a result, his interpretation of the story will be unique.
Working with Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone is his dream team. He can’t believe he is working with two of the greatest we have this early in his career, Amit sighs. Working with Bachchan Saab is every director’s dream for sure. After only directing three films, his dream has come true. There is nothing more I can ask for!
There’s more in The Intern to pique Amit’s interest. With The Intern, he is taking on the role of producer. He himself, Sunir Kheterpal and Deepika Padukone are co-producing it. Chrome is the name of my production company because yellow is my favourite colour and it contains the word ‘Om’. Recently, Amit vows to cast Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao. Gajrajji plays a significant role in his Maidaan” (featuring Ajay Devgn). In Maidaan, Neenaji had no part to play. However, she will undoubtedly appear in his next film, The Intern, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone.
