The Bachchans and Kapoors' friendship goes back a long way. Big B has shared screen space with Rishi Kapoor in films like Amar Akbar Anthony, Coolie, Naseeb and Ajooba. And now, the actor will reportedly work with the "wide-eyed little fellow", Ranbir Kapoor, in Ayan Mukerji's film Dragon. The film also stars Alia Bhatt. A source told news agency PTI, "He has given his nod for the film. It's a full-fledged role and not a guest appearance. It's an important role. He will begin shoot this year itself."
Meanwhile, here's the tweet of Big B with Vinod Khanna, setting out for a charity cricket match that had gone viral
