Talking about the film, Gaurav Verma, chief operating officer atRed Chillies Entertainment, said, “Bob Biswas is easily amongst the most iconic movie characters in recent memory. With Abhishek taking on the portrayal of Bob and Diya helming the film as director, we are excited to give further shape to such an extraordinary character.”
Bob Biswas will hit the big screens next year. However, the exact release date is yet to be announced.
Bachchan Jr. is awaiting the release of The Big Bull produced by Ajay Devgn. He was last seen in Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan which, although did not do well at the box office, earned him an appreciation for his performance.
The 'Raavan' actor will also be making his debut on the digital arena with the sequel to Amazon Prime Video's show Breathe. He is also a part of Anurag Basu's yet-untitled next, which also stars Rajkummar Rao.
