- 'The Big Bull' will release on April 8
- Abhishek Bachchan headlines the film's cast

Ever since the trailer of The Big Bull, starring Abhishek Bachchan released, there have been never-ending comparisons with the web-series Scam 1992 (more on that later). This is the story of the epic reply that The Big Bull star Abhishek Bachchan gave to a Twitter user who asked the actor why should he watch the film if he has already seen the show Scam 1992, which is based on similar lines. "I did watch Scam 1992 already, tell me one reason to watch The Big Bull again," read the tweet. The actor, who has quite a bit of a reputation when it comes to giving it back to trolls, gave a crisp reply in merely 3 words: "I'm in it."

Both The Big Bull and Scam 1992 - The Harshad Mehta Story, showcase the life of Harshad Mehta aka the "Bachchan of BSE." The 10-episode series made stars of Pratik Gandhi and Shreya Dhanwanthary. The Big Bull also features Ileana D'Cruz, who will play the role of journalist Sucheta Dalal. The cast of The Big Bull also includes Sohum Shah, Ram Kapoor, Mahesh Manjrekar and Nikita Dutta.
Pratik Gandhi, who played the role of Harshad Mehta in Scam 1992, gave Abhishek Bachchan a shout out and he tweeted earlier: "Congratulations Abhishek Bachchan and the whole team of The Big Bull. The trailer looks promising. Looking forward to watch the film." The show's director Hansal Mehta also cheered for The Big Bull team. "Please don't make unfair comparisons. There can be multiple tales of the same story," he tweeted.
The Big Bull has been backed by Ajay Devgn. The film is slated to release on streaming platform Disney+Hotstar on April 8.
