Though the actual plot of the upcoming film has not yet been revealed, the film will bear the essence of a family drama just like other Rajshri films. The primary plot revolves around the friendship of four friends who are in their old age.


In the trailer, we are introduced to four friends and the characters are portrayed by Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Denzongpa and Boman Irani respectively. The trailer also shows Bhupen, a disciple of Denzongpa, who has only one lifelong ambition: to scale Everest. But he passes away before he can realize his desire. No matter how many storms they endure, his companions decide to carry out his final desire and spread his ashes atop the Everest. The group travels to the Everest base camp despite their advanced age and health problems. The trailer also gives us a glimpse of the three female characters, Parineeti, Neena, and Sarika, who don’t seem to have much of a role in this story of four friends, and the tagline of the movie is “Friendship was their motivation.”

Filming Location

The filming took place in Nepal and the shoot started in October 2021 and the makers wrapped up the shoot in April 2022.
