Bob Biswas was one of the most intriguing characters in the Bollywood thriller movie, Kahaani. There was some talk about a spin-off movie starring that character. With Kahaani 2 underperforming at the box-office, the buzz about that petered down. But IHC has got fresh news that the movie is very much on track. In fact, it has now reached the floors. Red Chillies Entertainment has posted a photo of the movie’s shooting on their official Facebook page.
See Bob Biswas photo here:
Red Chillies has tagged several celebs to that photo, including Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Chitrangada Singh, Sujoy Ghosh, Gaurav Verma and others. Interestingly, there’s no talk about Saswata Chatterjee, who played the character in the first movie. Though the clapboard covers the character’s face, he looks nothing like Saswata, so the question arises about whether Saswata is playing the character or not. Red Chillies has not tagged Saswata Chatterjee in the photo as well.
Kahaani was one of the game-changers for the Indian movie industry when it came to thrillers. Vidya Balan played then female protagonist to perfection. Among all that rose the character of Bob Biswas. As things stand, it’s disappointing to see that Saswata Chatterjee is not a part of the project. Also, I retain my right to rage if someone tells me that they are planning to make Bob Biswas something like the James Bond character.
