Paa, starring the father-son duo of Roger and Stuart Binny

R Balki’s Paa, which released in 2009, is considered as one of the gems of Indian cinema. The film features the father-son duo of Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, but in reversed roles. While the senior Bachchan plays the 12-year-old son suffering from a rare genetic condition progeria, Abhishek plays the father. The film placed emphasis on the father-son relationship, and Amitabh went on to win several awards and accolades for his unique portrayal.

The above poster is photoshop inspired by Paa. Here the father and son duo of Roger and Stuart Binny play their respective original roles. Karnataka all-rounder Stuart Binny’s selection for the squad of World Cup 2015 raised a furore in the social media, many upset with the snub given to India’s 2011t World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh. Stuart’s father, Roger, who was a key part of India’s 1983 World Cup triumph, happens to be a national selector representing the South Zone, where his son plays.

The overwhelming belief is that the father has come to his son’s aid, helping him achieve a berth to Australia-New Zealand for cricket’s most coveted event. Our Paa poster captures the general sentiment.

CricLife, however, wishes Stuart all the luck and hopes that he does as well, if not better, than his father in India’s victorious 1983 World Cup campaign.
