Sharing the image, Anupam Kher wrote, “The group picture was taken at the shoot of Yash Chopra ji's Vijay. I was 33-years-old but I played Hema Malini's father. Superstar Rajesh Khanna's father-in-law, Rishi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor's grandfather. Originally, my role was supposed to be played by the true thespian of Indian cinema Dilip Kumar sahab.
