102 Not Out song shoot cancelled due to Sridevi's death

According to sources, the shooting for the song, composed by Amitabh Bachchan, was scheduled to start on Sunday (25 February) with Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor.


Director Umesh Shukla says the shooting for the song titled 'Baadduummbaaa' for his upcoming film 102 Not Out was called off on Sunday (25 February) due to the sudden demise of actress Sridevi.

According to sources, the shooting for the song was scheduled to start on Sunday with actors Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor. The song has been composed by Bachchan.

When IANS contacted him, Shukla said, "Yes as a mark of respect to the sudden and untimely demise of our legendary actress Sridevi, we decided to cancel our today's song shoot of 102 Not Out. May God give peace to her soul and strength to her family."

There is no word on the next date for the shoot.

Bachchan's character will be seen as a 102-year-old father to the 75-year-old character of Kapoor in the film. Billed as a most unusual father-and-son love story, the film is based on playwright Saumya Joshi's well-known Gujarati play by the same name. The film will be released on 4 May.

Apparently having a premonition Bachchan, Sridevi's co-star in half a dozen films including Khuda Gawah (1992), had tweeted at 1.15 am on Sunday: "Don't know why, but I feel a strange sense of unease."

Sridevi, 54, passed away in Dubai late on Saturday (24 February) night, plunging the entire country into a pall of gloom as her fans and admirers expressed shock and disbelief.

The actress breathed her last on Saturday night at around 11pm following cardiac arrest. She was rushed to the nearby Rashid Hospital but was pronounced dead on admission.

Sridevi was in Dubai to attend the marriage function of her nephew Mohit Marwah, along with husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi. The funeral will take place today (26 February).
