The Big Bull star Abhishek Bachchan is out Thursday on Disney + Hotstar VIP. Kookie Gulati’s director is based on the 1992 Harshad Mehta title scam, which was the biggest financial fraud to take place in the country until then.
The Big Bull also stars Nikita Dutta, Ileana D’Cruz, Ram Kapoor, Sohum Shah, Mahesh Manjrekar, and Saurabh Shukla, among others. The film was intended for a theatrical release, but has been moved to the OTT platform due to the ongoing pandemic.

And that’s where the biggest hurdle comes for Kookie (director Kookie Gulati) as he was making this film for the 70mm screen and now because of the situation we were in and because of the pandemic. he now had to adapt his storytelling style to make it conducive. to a digital streaming platform. “
Abhishek spoke of playing a morally dubious man in the movie and said, “When I was discussing the movie with Kookie I said if you were going to whitewash someone I’m not up for it because that makes a character very. one-dimensional, and that’s not what interests me. The tastes of today’s audience have also changed and evolved, from my understanding, they want to see the protagonist being more human, they want to see his flaws, they want to see gray characters.
The film will begin airing on Disney + Hotstar Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Abhishek will host the premiere viewing party on the streaming service’s Twitter account where audiences can post questions while watching the film.
