Saswata
Chatterjee’s
portrayal
of
contract
killer
Bob
Biwas
in
Vidya
Balan-starrer

Kahaani

has
achieved
a
cult
status
when
it
comes
to
thriller
genre.
His
‘Nomoshkar,
ek
minute’ dialogue
still
leaves
us
with
goosebumps.
The
iconic
character
is
now
getting
a
standalone
film
in
the
form
of

Bob
Biswas

which
is
helmed
by
director
Sujoy
Ghosh’s
daughter
Diya.
Ghosh
had
earlier
helmed

Kahaani
.

In
a
recent
interaction
with
a
news
agency,
Sujoy
explained
why
they
cast
Abhishek
Bachchan
instead
of
Saswata
Chatterjee
in

Bob
Biswas
.
Citing
example
of
legendary
filmmaker
Satyajit
Ray,
he
said
that
the
director
used
to
recast
the
same
character
in
different
movies.
At
the
same
time,
Ghosh
also
admitted
that
if
he
had
directed

Bob
Biswas,

he
would
have
retained
Chatterjee
in
the
role.
However,
the
casting
was
purely
his
daughter’s
choice.

Bob

Trailer,
Says
‘Proud
To
Say
You
Are
My
Son’

“I
am
saying
it
is
not
impossible
to
recreate
the
world
of
Bob
Biswas
where
Saswata,
who
played
Bob
earlier,
can
be
cast.
In
fact,
if
I
was
helming
the
film,
Saswata
would
have
been
a
choice,
but
Diya
is
directing
the
film
and
this
is
the
choice
she
made.
She
has
her
vision
to
the
film.
Our
idea
is
to
create
a
new
film,
in
which
the
world
of
Bob
is
different
from
what
we
have
seen
in
Kahaani,”
Sujoy
told
IANS.

The
filmmaker
said
that
it
was
a
very
conscious
decision
of
casting
a
new
actor
to
play
Bob
Biswas
as
they
wanted
to
move
away
from

Kahaani
.

He
continued,
“It
was
a
very
conscious
decision
of
casting
a
new
actor
to
play
Bob
Biswas
because
I
wanted
to
move
away
from
Kahaani,
this
is
not
that
film.
The
world
of
this
film
is
different.
This
is
a
new
film,
which
has
its
own
standing.
Through
this
film,
we
have
attempted
to
create
a
new
world
of
Bob
Biswas
which
has
a
fresh
new
perspective
to
the
story.
That
is
in
fact,
one
of
the
reasons
why
I
did
not
direct
the
film.
In
the
earlier
film,
when
the
introduction
of
Bob
happened
he
only
had
a
presence
of
eight
minutes.
Now,
we
have
a
full
story
on
him.”


Bob
Biswas

is
slated
to
release
on
December
3,
2021
on
Zee5.
