Abhishek Bachchan’s leading actor The Big Bull is expected to be released soon, but as one would expect the film draws many comparisons to Hansal Mehta’s web series Scam 1992. While some wait to see The Big Bull present the story of Harshad Mehta, a Twitter user shared “You can never reach the bar set by Team # Scam1992.” Abhishek had a cheeky response to this tweet.
The tweet read: “No wonder you can never reach the bar set by Team # Scam1992. No unwanted rap song, just themed music. No unnecessary drama, written to the point. And most importantly, the taste of Gujarati ke upar kahani banana wala, act karnewala, direct karnewala… Sab Gujarati. ‘”
Bachchan replied, “Hey, just came across this tweet. I played in #TheBigBull. Does it count if I love Gujarati food and my favorite restaurant is @gordhan_thal in Amdavad? Besides, my manager is also Gujarati ….. please say yes. “

Abhishek famously played the role of Dhirubhai Ambani in the Guru. His performance in the film was widely acclaimed.
Abhishek had previously praised Scam in a 1992 interview with Bollywood Hungama. “I saw Scam (1992) last year and I really enjoyed it. I think it was just a wonderful achievement for the whole team, ”he said.
He added, “Please don’t make unfair comparisons. There can be multiple stories in the same story. Each storyteller has his own path and should be seen independently from the other. This film has as many talents as my show. They did their best and deserve your love. “
The Big Bull is based on Harshad Mehta’s securities fraud, the largest financial fraud in the country to date. The film will be released on April 8th on Disney + Hotstar.
