The Big Bull is based on the life and financial scams of Indian stockbroker, Harshad Mehta. As Bachchan has already portrayed a similar sort of role in Guru, everyone expects another brilliant act from him. But this time, he has to cross the benchmark that has been set very high by Pratik Gandhi who also played the role of Harshad Mehta in the Scam 1992 web series.
Amid the release of 'The Big Bull' trailer, a question has bombarded the entertainment circle- Abhishek Bachchan vs Pratik Gandhi, Who is the real 'Big Bull'. While giving an interview to a leading daily, Abhishek Bachchan said, "All my life, I have been compared to the best in the business. It doesn’t frazzle me.”
Speaking of Abhishek Bachchan vs Pratik Gandhi, he said, “It’s (Scam) such a well-made show. But in terms of design and intention, series and movies are different disciplines. A web series has the liberty of time, and hence, will have depth and detail. In cinema, you have to make the story pacy. The two shouldn’t be comparable.”
When asked about the moral responsibility of writers to not glorify people like Harshad Mehta? Abhishek Bachchan replied, “I don’t know if the moral responsibility of the subject (rests with) the writers. Storytellers shouldn’t bother with morality.”
Bollywood Veteran Abhishek Bachchan has revamped his career like never before thanks to OTT. It’s not that the actor was short of projects, but the digital medium is providing him with enough opportunities to prove his acting potential. After leaving everyone jaw-dropped in Breathe 2, the Bachchan lad is all set to entertain the audience with his upcoming film, The Big Bull.
