While Hansal Mehta’s Scam1992 The Harshad Mehta Story, a 10-episode biopic on Harshad Mehta produced by Applause Entertainment sets new records on SonyLIV from October 9, a feature film The Big Bull starring Abhishek Bachchan as Harshad Mehta on the same subject will stream on Disney-Hotstar very shortly. Encouraged and enthused by the spectacular success of Hansal’s series, Disney-Hotstar now has big plans for The Big Bull.
Sources say that the Harshad Mehta feature film The Big Bull starring Abhishek Bachchan as Harshad Mehta is now being given a final trim-and-tweak to speak a super-slick language. In a swift change of plan, Disney-Hotstar may release The Big Bull on both the OTT platform and in theatres.
“After seeing the response to Scam 1992, Disney-Hotstar wants to go that extra mile with The Big Bull,” says an informed source. Abhishek Bachchan who returned to the shooting of The Big Bull after contracting COVID is hugely excited about his feature-film debut on the OTT platform. Incidentally, the well-known Gujarati actor Pratik Gandhi who made his OTT debut in Hansal Mehta’s series playing Harshad Mehta is suddenly a pan-India star.
