Actor Abhishek Bachchan is currently enjoying the good reviews he has been receiving for his role in Bob Biswas. Bob Biswas is the character from the successful film, Kahaani, which had Vidya Balan as the lead actress. Here’s what Abhishek Bachchan had to say about playing the role of Bob Biswas.

“I decided on doing the film more because of the emotion. Considering that his (Sujoy Ghosh) daughter is going to direct the film and I only discovered after I said yes to the film that this was the character called Bob Biswas, which was in his film Kahaani first, which I had not seen at that point of time. The one thing Diya and I were very clear about is how Bob should look, how Bob should walk, how he should move, his physicality and that is something that we wanted to stay true to because it is a character which is popular but you wanted him to look similar. So putting on the weight, achieving the hair the way it is, the glasses, the costume or something we are very sure we wanted to achieve and we set about achieving it. I asked them for sometime for me to put on weight because although we tried prosthetics, I wasn’t happy with it because it seems fake and I asked them for some time to put on the weight and they agreed. That was the physical preparation,” he told Filmfare in an exclusive interview.

“In terms of the emotional preparation, what was nice is Bob has been in a coma and Bob has lost his memory. So its nice, you get to rebuild and recalibrate him as a character, so we tried to do that and so there was no pressure that you had to follow some tram lines for the character, you can discover, make, create your new character,” he added.
