India September 18(IM): Vivek Oberoi took to social media and wished the cast of The Big Bull, starring Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn, all the best.
He wrote, "Congratulations team #TheBigBull! This looks amazing! Wishing the super talented team
@kookievgulati @juniorbachchan @ajaydevgn @anandpandit63 @KumarMangatand the entire crew all the very best!"
Considering that just a few months ago, Vivek had shared a distasteful meme about him Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, it seems as if Vivek is trying his best to make it up to Abhishek Bachchan. In the meme, Vivek dug up Salman and Aishwarya's 2001 affair. Drawing comparisons between the poll results and Aishwarya's personal life, Vivek Oberoi brought up that Aishwarya had once been in a relationship with Salman Khan (calling it 'opinion poll'), but later dated Vivek ('exit poll') and finally married Abhishek Bachchan (the end result).
After receiving severe flak from all quarters, Vivek deleted the meme and apologised. He wrote, "Sometimes what appears to be funny and harmless at first glance to one, may not be so to others. I have spent the last 10 years empowering more than 2000 underprivileged girls, I cant even think of being disrespectful to any woman ever."
Yesterday, Abhishek released the first poster of his next film and wrote, "The Big Bull. Now filming."
Abhishek is expected to play the lead role in the film, which also stars Ileana D'Cruz as the female lead. Other details of the film have not been revealed as yet. According to reports, the film is loosely based on the life of Harshad Mehta, the stockbroker who was arrested for financial crimes. The film is based on real events that took place between 1990 and 2000.
Earlier, Abhishek shared the picture of a clapper board from the mahurat shot of the film. Sharing the picture, he wrote, "Here we go! A new journey, a new beginning. Need your best wishes (sic)."
Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn had worked together in films like Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, Zameen, Yuva and Bol Bachchan. Abhishek was last seen in the film Manmarziyaan, while Ajay Devgn's last big-screen outing was De De Pyaar De.
