Abhishek Bachchan To Star In 'Bob Biswas'
Back in 2012, the Hindi film industry got one-of-its-kind drama thriller with Kahaani. Vidya Balan proved yet again that she doesn’t need a big banner or an actor to make good movies. Now, after an equally successful sequel, the Kahaani series is all set to get a spin-off with Abhishek Bachchan as the lead. The new movie is titled, Bob Biswas and will be produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s production house, Red Chillies Entertainment.
Abhishek Bachchan will portray the role of Bob Biswas, the mysterious, contract killer that featured in the first Kahaani movie. Bengali actor Saswata Chatterjee played the role in the 2012 film and became quite popular for his dialogue, “Nomoshkar, ek minute!”
The official announcement of the movie was shared on Red Chillies Entertainment’s twitter handle. It said, “Nomoshkar! Thrilled to announce our upcoming film, #BobBiswas in association with Bound Script Production; starring @juniorbachchan and directed by Diya Annapurna Ghosh. @gaurikhan @iamsrk @sujoy_g @_GauravVerma.”
Shah Rukh Khan too shared a picture with Abhishek on his social media handles and wrote, “#BobBiswas is coming to ‘kill it!’ Happy to associate with Bound Script Production to bring #BobBiswas, played by @juniorbachchan and directed by Diya Annapurna Ghosh. @RedChilliesEnt @gaurikhan @sujoy_g @_GauravVerma.”
Abhishek also replied to the post, “Hope I make you proud Shah! Thank you.”
Unlike the two prior movies, this film would not be directed by Sujoy Ghosh. The movie will be helmed by his daughter, Diya Annapurna Ghosh and if she is anything like her father, then we are sure this one is going to be a massive hit, just like the previous ones from the series.
Abhishek Bachchan was last seen in Anurag Kashyap's Manmarziyaan. Although the movie did not fare well on the box office, Abhishek was applauded for his amazing acting by the audience and critics. The film also starred Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal.
