Ever since the film Bob Biswas has been announced, the anticipation has surely shot up high. A spin-off of the popular antagonist from Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani starring Vidya Balan, the project will see Abhishek Bachchan slipping into the titular role which was formerly played by the renowned Bengali actor Saswata Chatterjee.
Now, Abhishek's photos from the Bob Biswas set have gone viral. The actor, who is currently shooting in Kolkata, has transformed into a next-door-man, Bob Biswas. He was spotted in Kolkata earlier today, shooting for the upcoming film with co-star Chitrangada Singh, who was also seen in a saree in one of the leaked photos. Abhishek looked much different from his usual stylish self. He was seen in a blue shirt and dark pants, wearing a ‘Bob Biwas wig’ and large glasses. He was also seen with a big paunch to look even more relatable.
Two days ago, Junior Bachchan had shared a selfie, all masked up from the flight as he was travelling to Kolkata to resume the shoot. He captioned his post as, "#BackToBeingBob Stay safe everyone. Travel safe. #maskon keep your mask on. #shotoniphone12promax"
