The much anticipated Abhishek Bachchan starrer, The Big Bull has created quite a stir since the release of its teaser and trailer. While everyone has been talking about the ensemble cast and the power pact storyline, the recreation of Mumbai from the late ’80s and early ’90s has caught the eye.

From styling to incorporating the nuances from those times, director Kookie Gulati has ensured that he works on every detail from back then minutely. The director who himself worked in the stock market in the early ’90s had his experience to guide his team through the research process.

Talking about the research he and his team put in, to make every frame impeccable, director Kookie Gulati shares, “I pushed my team for extensive research through libraries & books… we extensively watched a lot of videos of those times and because I’d lived through them at the stock market it became easier for me to point them into the right direction. But once the research was done it was still a mammoth task to bring it alive. That’s where Adf & NY Vfxwallas stepped in! It definitely was a huge collective effort by the entire team!!

Starring Abhishek Bachchan, Ileana D’Cruz, Nikita Dutta, and Sohum Shah, The Big Bull has been directed by Kookie Gulati, and it is produced by Ajay Devgn and Anand Pandit. Kumar Mangat Pathak and Vikrant Sharma team up as co-producers. The movie is all set to stream exclusively for the subscribers of Disney+ Hotstar VIP and Disney+ Hotstar Premium on 8th April 2021.
