Vidya Balanâs Kahaani became a massive hit, courtesy her brilliant character, a gripping story line and of course great direction work. One particular thing that stood out in the movie was the character of the innocent, naÃ¯ve looking LIC agent Bob Biswas who is a cold blooded murderer in reality. Played effortlessly by actor Saswata Chatterjee, Bobâs character stayed on with the audience long after the movie was over and the credits rolled out.
Turns out that the craze of Bob Biswas has gripped the makers as much as the audience and now after years since the movie released, it has been announced by none other than SRK that Bob Biswas is all set to have his own spin-off movie now. The movie is being produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and while the news of this movie is exciting to us, sadly, Saswata is not going to reprise the role, ironically made famous by him. Actor AbPhoto: Â© YouTube (Main Image)hishek Bachchan is going to step in his shoes now.

This piece of information has not made all Bob fans happy.
I honestly feel bad for #SaswataChatterjee upon hearing the news of #BobBiswas getting its own spin off! A character, with such limited screen time had such a lasting impact with audiences as the antagonist. I guess itâs the sad reality of pitching a scalable film! pic.twitter.com/qMo21PL8RXâ ANMOL JAMWAL (@jammypants4) November 25, 2019
@greatbong Abhishek Bachchan to portray #BobBiswas in upcoming movie.
I think the character worked due to Saswata Chatterjee's brilliant acting. Don't think AB jr. can do even 10% justice to the cult villain.

In fact, some fans are so upset with the makers and the general trend on Bollywood riding money on only A-listers, that people got #RIPBobBiswas trending.November 25, 2019 November 25, 2019
No doubt, Junior B is a wonderful actor and might even add his own take to this concept but one cannot help but feel bad for actor Saswata Chatterjee not getting the role made famous by him funnily. There has been no comment made by the actor yet, so we donât really know if heâs cool with what is happening or feels cheated, like most Bob fans feel at the moment.
