The King Khan of Bollywood just announced his next production venture ‘Bob Biswas’ that will star Abhishek Bachchan in a leading role. The film is slated to go on floors in early 2020.
Shahrukh Khan’ Red Chillies Entertainment along with Sujoy Ghosh’s Bound Script Productions will be co-producing ‘Bob Biswas’ with Abhishek Bachchan in the titular role. The film will see Abhishek Bachchan essaying the role of Bob Biswas, an iconic character from Vidya Balan’s 2012 hit ‘Kahaani’.
‘Bob Biswas’ is the spin-off of the character ‘Bob Biswas’ from ‘Kahaani’. Bob Biswas is vehemently remembered as the contract killer from ‘Kahaani’ who became the favorite mascot of social media memes back in the day. The supremely intriguing with his trademark line ‘Nomoshkar, Ek minute’ has been synonymous with the current Bollywood pop-culture. The film will showcase the early life of Bob Biswas who swept us off our feet in 2012.
