Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is a regular on social media. Be it sharing poetry, selfies, WhatsApp forwards, “interesting” trivia, random observations, or just updates on his life– BigB knows how to spend time on the web and keeps himself occupied pretty much every day with something or the other, especially on the interactive microblogging site Twitter. Taking to the platform post-midnight on Tuesday, the actor shared a snapshot of himself deep in sleep, in what seemed like a photo from his Mumbai residence.
The photo immediately caught the attention of fans and followers who were left with some unanswered, important questions.
Who clicked the photograph? Who tweeted the photograph?
It was only a matter of time that the photo of BigB in slumber was turned into memes.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Bachchan will be starring in the Hindi remake of Nancy Meyers’ 2015 film The Intern. Deepika Padukone took to Instagram to make the announcement with a poster of the film. Late actor Rishi Kapoor was originally supposed to star in the film before his untimely demise in 2020.
Taking to Instagram, Deepika wrote, “What an absolute honour to be collaborating with one of my most special co-star again! Welcoming @amitabhbachchan to the Indian adaptation of #TheIntern (sic).”
Deepika, who launched her production company Ka Productions last year, will co-produce the film with Sunil Kheterpal. Warner Brothers India, Ka Productions and Azure Entertainment will collaborate on the film. Amit Ravindernath Sharma will be directing the film.
The 2015 Hollywood film The Intern starred Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro in lead roles. Rene Russo, Anders Holm, Andrew Rannells, Adam DeVine and Zack Pearlman also starred in the film. The film is about a 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker (De Niro), who applies for a senior intern at an online fashion site, after realising that he is not cut out for retirement. Anne Hathaway played his boss in the film.
