Abhishek Bachchan starrer The Big Bull is set to have a digital release. The Kookie Gulati directorial, bankrolled by Ajay Devgn and Anand Pandit, will stream on Disney Plus Hotstar. The release date of The Big Bull is yet to be announced.

On Monday, Abhishek revealed a new poster of the film during Disney Plus Hotstar’s virtual press conference. Speaking about reuniting with Devgn as a producer, Bachchan Jr said, “This is my second film with Ajay Devgn Films. They were the co-producers of Bol Bachchan. It’s always great working with them. I feel blessed that Ajay Devgn and Anand Pandit considered me worthy enough to be a part of the movie. Whatever they offer me is always something special to me.”

The Big Bull’s first look was released in January with the tagline, ‘The man who sold dreams to India’. The film is said to be inspired by the Harshad Mehta securities scam of 1992.

Calling The Big Bull a rags to riches story, Abhishek Bachchan shared, “The Big Bull isn’t a historical. It is based in Mumbai in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It’s a rags to riches story, a story of ambition that if you work towards your goal, you’ll definitely achieve it.”

He added, “It’s a wonderful film with a wonderful star cast including Ileana D’Cruz, Nikita Dutta, Soham Shah among more wonderful actors. We loved making this film and I hope our audience at Disney Plus Hotstar also likes it.”
