After a quiet 2019, Abhishek Bachchan is raring to go in 2020. Besides Ludo (2020) and Bob Biswas (2020), the actor will be seen in and as The Big Bull (2020), directorial debut of writer Kookie Gulati.
In the newest poster from the film, Bachchan remains hidden in the shadows, lifting a finger up to his lips. The tagline reads, ‘The man who sold dreams to India’.
The film, produced by Ajay Devgn and Anand Pandit, is set in the 1990s and rumoured to be based on the life of Harshad Mehta who was involved in a number of financial frauds early in that decade.
Filmmaker Hansal Mehta is working on a web-series, Scam 1992, which will also look at Harshad Mehta's financial crimes.
Bachchan will likely play a fictional character based on Mehta, who was known as The Big Bull back in those days. Co-produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Vikrant Sharma, the film also stars Ileana D’Cruz and Lekha Prajapati.
While the film is due to be released this year, the date has not been announced yet.
