The hilarious social comedy is produced by Dinesh Vijan, Sandeep Leyzell and Shobhana Yadav. Talking about the film, a source earlier told PinkVilla, “It’s a script close to Abhishek’s heart and he is looking forward to get into the tale that chronicles the journey of a corrupt politician.” The source added, “The title of the film is Dasvi, which indicates 10th grade, as Abhishek’s character is that of a SSC failed Chief Minister. The film is unlike any political film made in Bollywood as the narrative is entangled with a lot of humour.” Also Read – Abhishek Bachchan to kickstart the shooting of Dinesh Vijan’s Dasvi from THIS date?

Meanwhile, Abhishek Bachchan will be next seen in The Big Bull, which will release on Disney + Hotstar. The film is directed by Kookie Gulati and produced by Ajay Devgn and Anand Pandit. The Big Bull also stars Ileana D’Cruz, Nikita Dutta, Soham Shah, Ram Kapoor, Supriya Pathak and Saurabh Shukla. The film is based on the life and times of stockbroker Harshad Mehta. Harshad orchestrated the Rs 5,000-crore 1992 securities scandal, which led to the exposure of many loopholes in the functioning of the stock market and banks. Earlier, Abhishek Bachchan in an interview had said, “The Big Bull isn’t historical. It is based in Mumbai in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It’s a rags to riches story, a story of ambition that if you work towards your goal, you’ll definitely achieve it.” Also Read – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan shares a loving selfie with Abhishek Bachchan and Aaradhya from the Guru actor’s birthday celebrations
