The Big Bull is being directed by Kookie Gulati. Actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn is producing the film in association with Anand Pandit. Abhishek and Ajay have previously worked together in the 2012 hit comic-caper Bol Bachchan, directed by Rohit Shetty. Besides Abhishek Bachchan, Ileana D’Cruz is also playing an important character in the movie.

Though nothing much is known about The Big Bull at the moment, a source had earlier told a tabloid that the movie is inspired from a series of true events that happened between 1990 and 2000. “It is based on real events that took place between 1990 and 2000 and changed India’s financial fabric. Ajay loved the subject and immediately agreed to back it. Ileana has a very strong role in the film but isn’t paired opposite Abhishek. The team is on the lookout for an actress to be paired with him. The film will go on the floors by the year-end,” the source had informed.
