As per sources, the makers of The Big Bull have deferred the release owing to the immense love and success Hansal Mehta’s Scam 1992 has been receiving.
As reported by a media house, a source said, “Just like Scam 1992, The Big Bull is also based on the life of Harshad Mehta. Of course, the producers of the film knew about the web series but never thought it in their wildest dreams that Scam 1992 would become the most appreciated show in the history of Indian digital space.”
Adding further the source said, “They are self-assured about their film but fear that it’ll be massively trolled by the lovers of the web show. There’ll be comparisons of Abhishek Bachchan’s performance and look with that of Pratik Gandhi. Even the other actors as well as the dialogues and music will face the wrath.”
The insider further added, “The makers (of The Big Bull) had initially planned to release it on Disney+ Hotstar on December 18. But obviously, that won’t happen now. Producer Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan and co-actors Sohum Shah and Nikita Dutta have, in fact, even shot for an episode of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ way back on November 4. They were hoping that the hype around Scam 1992 would die down soon. However, it hasn’t happened yet.”
Well, those who haven’t got the time to put 10 hours to know the life of Harshad Mehta would be happy to watch his life journey in one-fourth or one-fifth of run time with The Big Bull.
