Abhishek Bachchan seems to have mastered the art of replying to Twitter users who often troll him for his acting skills. One Twitter user recently asked him to give one reason to watch his upcoming film, The Big Bull, having watched Hansal Mehta's web series, Scam 1992. And his witty reply to the user has blown everyone's mind.
Ever since the trailer of The Big Bull was dropped online, fans have been drawing parallel's with the Pratik Gandhi starrer Scam 1992 which is broadly based on the securities scam of 1992 and stockbroker Harshad Mehta's life. As The Big Bull is set to release digitally on April 8, one Twitter user asked Abhishek why he should watch the film.
"I did watch #Scam1992 already, tell me one reason to watch #Thebigbull again. @juniorbachchan,” the Twitter user asked. To which, the actor gave a witty response saying, "I’m in it," followed by a wink and laughing emoji. His reply further raised the expectations of his fans to watch the film to see if Abhishek has managed to pull off the role better than Pratik in Scam 1992.
The Big Bull was expected to have a theatrical release but the pandemic forced the makers to go for a digital premiere instead. In fact, while they had finished shooting The Big Bull, many members from the team were infected with Covid during the post production.
"We had finished shooting the film before lockdown. The film was slated for an October release. Then, lockdown happened and we decided to release it digitally. There was no clarity as to what would happen to cinemas. (The film's producer) Ajay (Devgn) spoke to me in April and said that we should release the film digitally. We didn't know if theatres open and if people would come. So we thought, why not release it digitally since we know people will watch. We had some tweaks left which we had to shoot. We did this when I recovered from Covid. Then (director) Kookie (Gulati) got Covid, one of the co-producers got infected. Thankfully, everyone is safe now. Most of the shoot was finished before Covid struck our country," Abhishek recently told IANS.
The film is bankrolled by actor Ajay Devgn and Anand Pandit and also stars Ileana D'Cruz, Nikita Dutta, and Sohum Shah, and is slated to stream on Disney+ Hotstar VIP and Disney+ Hotstar Premium on April 8.
Meanwhile, Abhishek wrapped up shooting for the Agra schedule of his upcoming film Dasvi. The movie is directed by Tushar Jalota. The film also stars Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur.
