Produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Bob Biswas was earlier played by Saswata Chatterjee.
Bob Biswas is back! The evil man from Vidya Balan’s Kahaani is back to tell his story. This time, however, he has lost his memory or that is what the latest teaser from the upcoming Zee5 original film indicates. Produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Bob Biswas sees Abhishek Bachchan in the lead role as Bob Biswas.
“Aapko shaayad yaad nahi, asal mein aap bahut bure aadmi ho,” a voice is heard saying in the background. With that, we are introduced to the first official look of Abhishek from the movie. Much like the name, he is seen with bob cut hair. The famous glasses also make a re-entry.

The trailer of the movie will be unveiled on November 19. It is expected to release at 12 pm.
Saswata Chatterjee had originally played the role of Bob Biswas in Kahaani. He was a mysterious character and was considered to be a figment of imagination - a character created for a make-believe story.
However, Bob was also a very important character in Kahaani. Saswata, as the character, was the main lead while promoting the movie.
A very memorable scene from the film involved the actor conducting an evil task without leaving so much as a smirk on his face. Saswata performed the scene with a poker face so brilliantly that it is not only etched into people’s minds but gives them goosebumps even today. The scene has him interacting with Vidya (also her character name) at the railway station and pushing her towards a metro train approaching the platform. In the same instance, Bob pulled her back without flinching.
As a man, Bob became very bitter, to the extent that killing people gave him pleasure. He would smile and walk with a gun attached to a silencer, searching for his new target. Bob also received his end in Kahaani but it would be interesting to see if Abhishek Bachchan can fit into his shoes and portray the same emotions as Saswata, in the role of Bob Biswas.
