Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment along with Sujoy Ghosh’s Bound Script Production have come together for a new film - Bob Biswas starring Abhishek Bachchan in the lead. A fictional character from Vidya Balan's Kahaani (2012) - Bob Biswas, is a poker-faced contract killer who instantly entered cinema folklore by capturing the imagination of many viewers. The character spawned dedicated social media pages, memes and is a favourite with Bollywood pop-culture enthusiasts who associate him to date with his trademark line "Nomoshkar, Ek minute”. Bob Biswas's spin-off film featuring him as the central character will exhibit many facets of his dual nature.
The film will be directed by Diya Annapurna Ghosh. Red Chillies’ last collaboration with Sujoy Ghosh, BADLA witnessed great box office success and much critical acclaim. Gaurav Verma, Chief Operating Officer, Red 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.”
