Now, according to the latest report in Filmfare.com, Chitrangada Singh is the one who’ll be cast opposite Abhishek Bachchan in the psycho-thriller. “There’s no denying that Chitrangada is one highly talented actress and we’re sure that her inclusion in the film will only add to the value. While there’s no official confirmation regarding the same, we do expect the makers to make the reveal soon,” said the source to Filmfare.
Moreover, an official announcement was recently made by the makers in which it was revealed that Abhishek Bachchan will be playing the character of the ruthless assassin while Shah Rukh Khan will turn producer for the same.
Bob Biswas will be directed by Sujoy Ghosh’s elder daughter, Diya Annapurna Ghosh. Even though the lead will be played by Abhishek Bachchan and not Saswata Chatterjee, who played Bob Biswas in the original film, Kolkata continues to remain an integral part of the story and if everything falls in the proper place, the shoot will begin in the city from January 20, 2020.
