Abhishek Bachchan is all set to start shooting for his next project from February 22. In this movie he will be seen playing the role of a 10th failed Chief Minister.
Actor Abhishek Bachchan had a good run on the work front in the year 2020. He made his web debut with Amazon Prime’s ‘Breathe into the Shadows’ and ended the year with bang on reviews for his direct to OTT film ‘Ludo’. Now the actor is looking forward to work in even more exciting projects.
Recently, Abhishek wrapped up the shoot of Shah Rukh Khan and Sujoy Ghosh production, Bob Biswas. According to exclusive reports, now Abhishek will be flying to Agra to commence shooting for the ‘Dasvi’. Dasvi is a political comedy which will mark the directorial debut of Tushar Jalota. The film is produced by Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films. The film is said to be a beautiful story which will highlight the importance of education in today’s society. It will have a lot of humour elements to it.
A source close to the development of the project revealed, “All through the lockdown, Abhishek has been in constant touch with Tushar and Dinoo, to discuss this film and it’s finally all set to go on the floors from February 22. 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 further 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.”
Though the details of the films are kept under wraps, but Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur are said to be a part of the project. As the film is set against the backdrop of politics, Delhi and the areas around are the ideal shooting spot for the film.
Apart from Bob Biswas, Abhishek is also done with the shooting of the ‘The Big Bull’, a biographical film on stock market broker Harshad Mehta. According to latest reports, in the second half of the year, Abhishek will also be reuniting with his Dostana co-star John Abraham. After 13 years, both the actors will be collaborating for the official hindi remake of Malayalam hit, Ayyappanum Koshiyum.
