The last time Abhishek Bachchan and I spoke was almost a year ago. At that time he was in Agra shooting Dasvi. Eleven months later, he’s promoting the drama-comedy in which he plays an eighth standard pass Jat politician called Gangaram Chaudhary. When he gets jailed, Chaudhary decides he wants to complete his ‘dasvi’ or 10th grade exams.
Directed by Tushar Jalota, Dasvi (on Netflix from April 7, 2022) also stars Nimrat Kaur as Chaudhary’s wife and Yami Gautam as a stern police officer.
Dasvi is a genre-shift for Bachchan who was last seen in headlining The Big Bull and Bob Biswas and he’s super excited about this ‘masala entertainer’.
From the 8th to the 10th is just two more years of education. Do you think it makes a world of a difference?
