Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan transforms into killer Bob Biswas as he shoots in Kolkata for the upcoming standalone film with co-star Chitrangada Singh. The pictures from the sets have gone viral, which show Bachchan just like the character, which was introduced in Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani.
In the photos, Bachchan dressed in a shirt and loose trousers with squared-framed spectacles plays the role of a contract killer in the film. The character was originally played by Saswata Chatterjee in Kahaani.
Spotted in a wig, Bachchan looks unrecognisable in his latest avatar. He is joined by Chitrangada, who is seen in a blue sari along with a little boy who seemed to play their son in the film.
Chitrangada had earlier shared a picture of herself gearing up for the shoot. She excitingly wrote that face paint on the sets of Bob Biswas with hashtags #happytobebackatwork #cityofjoy.
Bachchan also posted a picture of himself earlier this week, while he headed to Kolkata for the shoot.He captioned it saying #backtobeingbob.
The first schedule of Bob Biswas started in January this year. But was delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Later, Abhishek was diagnosed with Covid-19 infection, the shoot was resumed after his recovery.
Written by Sujoy, Bob biswas is being helmed by his daughter Diya Annapurna Ghosh. Bankrolled by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red chillies Entertainment and Sujoy’s Bound Script Production, the release date of the film is yet to be announced.
Meanwhile, apart from Bob Biswas, Bachchan will next be seen in Big Bull directed by Kookie Gulati and produced by Ajay Devgn. It is a biographical crime drama that retells the life story of Harshad Mehta, the stock broker.
