The film has been directed and co-written by Kookie Gulati. It is produced by Ajay Devgn, Anand Pandit, Vikrant Sharma and Kumar Mangat Pathak respectively.
Abhishek Bachchan plays the titular role of Hemant Shah, a stockbroker, based on the life of Harshad Mehta. Just like on previous occasions, AB Junior got trolled for his act and the movie overall by a hater online. But his boss style reply schooled the troll in a much-needed way.
Take a look at the Twitter exchange here:
As usual @juniorbachchan doesn’t disappoint you with his 3rd rate so called acting in a poorly scripted & badly filmed #TheBigBull @pratikg80 & #Scam1992 are far superior by miles.@ajaydevgn @DisneyplusHSVIP
