Kahaani’s Bob Biswas Is Getting A Spin-Off But Twitter Is Disappointed With Jr Bachchan In Lead

One of the most bone-chilling characters that Hindi films have produced is that of Bob Biswas from Kahaani (2012) – a docile and harmless looking LIC agent from the outside but a contract killer from the inside.

Bob Biswas, played by one of Bengal’s iconic actors Saswata Chatterjee indeed became a memorable one because it was not just a major shift from the quintessential all-black wearing, sutta smoking, bike riding killers. His ‘bhodrolok’ (gentleman) looking attire and of course the way he greeted people and said ‘Nomoshkar’ never gave away the fact that he was a blood-thirsty demon.

And now, Bob Biswas is all set to get its own spin-off and the film is being produced by none other than Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, reports News18.

However, it was a major let down when it was revealed that Abhishek Bachchan will allegedly be playing Bob’s role. People took to Twitter to express their disappointment over the casting and are saying that if there is someone who can do justice to the role, it’s only Saswata Chatterjee.

Whether Abhishek Bachchan will be able to stand up to everyone’s expectation is doubtful. Because first, junior Bachchan’s physical characteristics come nowhere near to how Bob is supposed to look like. And second, when we already have the OG Bob Biswas, Saswata Chatterjee, why ruin it by giving the role to someone else?
