It’s going to be one helluva jive jugalbandi. For Umesh Shukla’s All Is Well, which brings together Rishi Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan for the first time as father and son, director Umesh Shukla and choreographer Ahmed Khan have conceived an epic song and dance, where the duo would be dancing to the most beloved songs from the past.
Says a source, “Rishi would recreate his own hit number from blockbusters like Bobby, Khel Khel Mein, Naseeb and Hum Kisise Kam Nahin. Abhishek would be dancing to his father’s iconic numbers from films like Kaalia, Silsila and Yaraana.”
The selection of songs is still on. Sources say there are way too many Rishi and Bachchan numbers that created history. “To select a mere handful for Rishi Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan to jive to is to dive into an ocean to look for a few pearls. Umesh and Ahmed are at it,” says the source in the know.
Confirming the historic dance number, Ahmed Khan says, “We are planning something really big with Chintuji and Abhishek. It would be the kind of dance number which would pay a tribute to the chartbusters of the 1970s and 80s filmed on Chintuji and Bachchan Saab. We are in the process of selecting the songs.”
As for the dance movements, Rishi would have no problems doing a Rishi. But for Abhishek to dance like his father would be a tough call.
Here’s one item number that we all can’t wait to see.
