Abhishek Bachchan's film, Bob Biswas, is a spin-off of the first Kahaani film, which was a mystery thriller film that starred Vidya Balan in the lead role. One of the most interesting and terrifying antagonists from Kahaani was the assassin Bob Biswas, who would hunt down his targets in the guise of an ordinary overweight salesman. Bob Biswas soon became the most popular villain from the first Kahaani film, as his persona of a wolf in sheep's clothing truly horrified viewers. The upcoming film, Bob Biswas, will star Abhishek Bachchan as the titular character, and the film will delve into the origin of the assassin's career.
