Is The Big Bull release date confirmed? When is the 2020 movie out? The Indian movie was delayed, so let’s get the situation explained.

Under the circumstances, many film fans will agree that 2020 was a rather impressive year for cinematic output.

We were treated to new films from the likes of Christopher Nolan (Tenet), Spike Lee (Da 5 Bloods), Charlie Kaufman (I’m Thinking of Ending Things), David Fincher (Mank) and more.

Even Borat made an unexpected appearance!

Nevertheless, many moviegoers remain disheartened with how many anticipated projects were delayed, including Dune, Black Widow, A Quiet Place Part II, No Time to Die and, of course, The Big Bull.

Directed by Kookie Gulati, this Hindi-language biographical crime movie serves as an exploration of Harshad Mehta, delving into a life of financial crime.

The film was originally scheduled for release in 2020, so when is The Big Bull release date?

The Big Bull release date: Is it confirmed?

  • A release date for The Big Bull is yet to be confirmed but it’s suggested that the film will arrive in early 2020. Let’s explain…

As highlighted by Bollywood Hungama, the film’s release date was somewhat influenced by the overwhelming success of the TV series Scam 1992, which is also based on the life of Harshad Mehta.

It premiered in October 2020 and the previous source suggests that there have been concerns from The Big Bull producers that the film will be judged too closely in comparison to the recent series.

For example, Abhishek Bachchan’s portrayal may simply be compared to Pratik Gandhi’s.

Bollywood Hungama includes that a source has explained: “They were hoping that the hype around Scam 1992 would die down soon. However, it hasn’t happened yet. The producers are aware that they can’t keep pushing the film indefinitely. It’s now expected to release in early 2021.”

So, audiences shouldn’t have to wait much longer.

It was initially scheduled for release on Disney+ Hotstar on Friday, December 18th 2020.

Hansal Mehta addresses the comparison

While there may be concerns that comparisons will ruin viewers’ overall enjoyment in the film, the comparison has arguably also earned the film more exposure.

The director of Scam 1992Hansal Mehta – weighed in on the situation, explaining:

“When they announced their film, we were already shooting. Our approach is different from theirs. I have been told that they’ve taken the outline of the story and created a work of fiction from it.”

He also said in an earlier press statement: “I had read The Scam many years ago and even toyed with the idea of making it into a film. The film never got made! I believe every story has its destiny. With our newspapers screaming scam every single day, I think the time for telling these stories was just right.”
