There are many reasons that made the 2012 Sujoy Ghosh thriller Kahaani the phenomenon that it became. One reason was the iconic character of Bob Biswas, a regular-looking LIC agent who moonlighted as a cold-blooded contract killer.
Bob Biswas first appeared in Vidya Balan-starrer 'Kahaani'
Apparently, Bob Biswas will be a standalone film based on the eerie character from its source material, Kahaani.
After the original film came out, Bob Biswas, who was played by Bengali actor Saswata Chatterjee, became utterly popular among Bollywood fans.
Bob Biswas's signature dialog, before he would pull the trigger, "Nomoshkar, ek minute" became a favorite among pop-culture enthusiasts and meme content creators.
Shooting for 'Bob Biswas' expected to start early next year
Bob Biswas is expected to go on floors in early 2020.
Notably, this isn't the first time that the Khan-Bachchan duo will come together for a film. The two have previously co-starred in films like Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) and Happy New Year (2014).
But, this would be the first time that Bachchan would appear in a movie produced by Khan.
Other upcoming movies of Bachchan and Khan
Apart from Bob Biswas, Bachchan will also soon appear in Anurag Basu's upcoming untitled project alongside Rajkummar Rao, and Kookie Gulati's The Big Bull. On the other hand, Khan who was last seen in Aanand L. Rai's Zero, is yet to announce his next movie.
