Abhishek Bachchan and Ileana D’Cruz starrer ‘The Big Bull’ will release tomorrow. Read on to know when and where you can watch it.
Abhishek Bachchan’s much-awaited film ‘The Big Bull’ will premiere tomorrow on Disney+ Hotstar VIP. Directed by Kookie Gulati, the film has been in the news thanks to its comparison with Hansal Mehta’s blockbuster web series Scam 1992. Hansal Mehta has insisted not to compare both projects as they are different.
Coming to The Big Bull, the film is based on the life of Harshad Mehta, a stockbroker, involved in financial scams during the ’80s and ’90s. Abhishek Bachchan is portraying the role of Harshad Mehta in the crime drama film produced by Ajay Devgn.
The Big Bull release date and time
Producer Ajay Devgn shared the details about the release date and time on his Twitter profile. The Big Bull will premiere on Apr 8, 2021, at 7:30 pm on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
