“In our endeavor to collaborate with incredible storytellers and present content that strikes a chord, we are happy to bring forth a spin-off of a popular and audience favorite character, Bob Biwas in collaboration with Red Chillies Entertainment and Sujoy Ghosh. We are sure that Abhishek’s unique portrayal of the character will capture people’s imagination and will stay with them”. Said Manish Kalra, Chief Bussiness Officer of ZEE5.
“I have had the most fantastic experience designing Bob Biswas, a crime-drama that has a love story in its essence. This film came to me in 2020 which was one of the most difficult times in all of our lives. I was blessed with a fabulous set of actors like Abhishek and Chitrangda amongst others who have given it they’re all. With the support of my whole crew, Red Chillies Entertainment and Boundscript, we culminated amidst all odds to make ‘Bob Biswas’ happen & I’m very grateful to them”. Said Director Diya Annapurna Ghosh.
The writer and Co-producer Sujoy Ghosh also said, “This is a new ‘Bob Biswas’, he is like any of us. In life, we all have various roles to play, whether as a parent, spouse or friend, and in each role we are equally responsible and accountable. This is the world of Bob, where he is trying to cope with each role as his life unfolds before him. Creating this world and Bob was super excited and having Abhishek onboard has made the film even cooler. I genuinely hope that the audience enjoys what they see”.
