In real, Amitabh 71 not out, on reel '102 Not Out'!

New Delhi, Oct 11 (IANS) On the occasion of Amitabh Bachchan's 71st birthday Friday, producer Bhushan Kumar has announced a new film "102 Not Out", in which the megastar will play an old man who decides to break a world record of longevity.

"It's his birthday and this is the right occasion to announce our next venture with him (after 'Bhoothnath Returns'). The film is titled '102 Not Out', which will have him share screen space with Paresh Rawal," Kumar, the head of T-Series, said in a statement.

"Two brilliant actors sharing screen space will take the story to another level," he added.

The project will be directed by Umesh Shukla, who helmed the hugely acclaimed "Oh My God!"

"102 Not Out" will show the importance of living life as opposed to merely existing.

Big B earlier this week started shooting for "Bhoothnath Returns", a sequel to the 2008 film "Bhoothnath".
