Bob Biswas will go on floors next year. The makers are yet to announce a release date.
The film's story is expected to be a prequel to the Vidya Balan-starrer Kahaani, centred around the character played by Saswata Chatterjee. A cold-blooded contract killer, Bob is known for his trademark line, "Nomoshkar…ek minute."
Abhishek shared his excitement of being a part of the film on Twitter
