Exclusive! Why should I regret it ?, says' Bob Biswas original from Kahaani reacting to the split of Abhishek Bachchan
The moment Shahrukh khan announced the spin-off of Sujoy Ghosh directed by Kahaani, sent social networks to a tizzy. While some were delighted to hear about the resurgence of a spooky negative character in a full movie, many were not so happy with the casting. There were questions about the casting Abhishek Bachchan as the iconic character, not the original actor Saswata Chatterjee , who really made it so popular.

So, what Saswata Chatterjee has to say about the ‘Bob Biswas’ film? The celebrated actor who recently returned to Kolkata after an outdoor schedule spoke to ETimes in an exclusive chat and stated that he is absolutely fine with the casting of the spin-off. “Why should I regret it? Rather, I am proud to see that the character I had created once will now be portrayed by the prince of the Bachchan family . As a Bengali, I feel proud. I have already rehearsed the character. Now it is Abhishek's turn. I will definitely watch the movie, says a cheerful Saswata.
Previously, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, who played a crucial role in Kahaani, had lent his support to Abhishek being elected as Bob Biswas. It's hard to say why the movie will be made for an Indian bread audience. Everyone will watch the movie, not just the Bengali public. I think they have made the decision after considering all these factors. Yes, since I was part of Kahaani, for me Bob Biswas means Saswata Chattopadhyay. But I am sure Abhishek Bachchan will do a good job, ”the‘ Pari ’actor had said.
Besides being compared to iconic villains such as Gabbar Singh and Mogambo, Saswata Chatterjee's portrayal of a harmless-looking insurance agent who murders for money had once given birth to so many jokes and one-liners on social media. There are even Facebook and Twitter pages dedicated to Bob Biswas with thousands of followers.
