Abhishek Bachchan finally dropped the first trailer of his highly anticipated film ‘Bob Biswas‘.
Going by the trailer, the film delves into the origins of Bob Biswas, the breakout character in Sujoy Ghosh’s 2012 thriller ‘Kahaani’, fronted by Vidya Balan. Considering that the character was made famous by noted actor Saswata Chatterjee, Abhishek had some big shoes to fill.
“Nomoshkar… Meet Bob,” Abhishek wrote as he shared the trailer on his handle.
The film will explore the life of Kolkata’s notorious hitman-for-hire, who finds it difficult to recall his criminal past. Faced with a moral dilemma and haunted by ghosts of his victims, he finds himself struggling to play the doting father and husband, while also trying his best to keep his ‘clients’ at bay.
Speaking about the trailer, Abhishek Bachchan, said, “We had an amazing team working on Bob Biswas. I have thoroughly enjoyed deep-diving into and creating the immersive world of Bob. It’s one of the coolest films I have worked on and I hope people truly enjoy the trailer and the film.”
Commenting on the trailer launch, lead actress Chitrangda Singh, said, “Bob Biswas is a unique film, and I am proud to be a part of it and work with the awesome team that created it. It’s a fascinating tale of an intriguing character and the people around him. The film has the right amount of mystery, madness and mayhem that is sure to entertain the audiences.”
Directed by debutante Diya Annapurna Ghosh and produced by Shah Rukh Khan‘s Red Chillies Entertainment along with Sujoy Ghosh’s Bound Script Production, the film was postponed multiple times in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
‘Bob Biswas’ will have an OTT release on 3rd December 2021.
