Two months after Abhishek Bachchan's COVID-19 recovery, 'The Big Bull' makers to resume shoot


Abhishek Bachchan's much-anticipated film The Big Bull is looking forward to a grand digital release on Disney+ Hotstar soon. On August 18, makers increased the excitement of fans as they released a poster of actress Ileana D'cruz from the film. Directed by Kookie Gulati, the film is based on the Indian stock market. Now, the makers are all set to return to the sets with the last leg of shoot that was halted because of the lockdown in March. Post that, Abhishek had tested positive for COVID-19 and was in the hospital for nearly a month.

Now, with things getting better and Abhishek's full recovery, producer Anand Pandit said the aim is to finish the film's patchwork by mid-October. He stated, "Abhishek is a good-natured trooper and is going out of his way to accommodate us despite having battled COVID-19. He is thankfully totally healthy now and as enthusiastic as ever. It is a blessing to have him as our lead star."

The team is ensuring that everyone on the sets is totally safe amid COVID-19. "We are COVID proofing every inch of our sets. We have a team of COVID-19 watchdogs supervising everything and there is always at least one expert available to us at any given time," he added. "This has been a rewarding journey despite the occasional delays and with Abhishek back on the sets, we are all even more energised and motivated than before," Pandit said.

The Big Bull also stars Ileana D' Cruz, Nikita Dutta, Soham Shah, Ram Kapoor, Supriya Pathak and Saurabh Shukla. It is backed by Ajay Devgn and Anand Pandit and co-produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Vikrant Sharma.
