The industry buzz is that Abhishek Bachchan will portray the role of stockbroker Harshad Mehta in a film to be produced by Ajay Devgn.
The infamous Harshad Mehta was charged with numerous financial crimes associated with the securities scam of 1992. The film is being directed by Kookie Gulati and will have Ileana D’Cruz as the leading lady.
Devgn and Abhishek have worked together in several films including Bol Bachchan, Zameen, Yuva and LOC Kargil.
While earlier this year there were reports about Devgn and director Indra Kumar planning a film on Harshad Mehta to be titled The Big Bull. But now it’s Kookie Gulati who’s helming the project.
Apart from this venture, filmmaker Hansal Mehta too is making a web series on the same Harshad Mehta securities scam. Titled Scam, it is based on Sucheta Dalal’s book.
