Debutant director Tushar Jalota will helm Dasvi from a script penned by Ritesh Shah. The latter is known for his work in Pink and Batla House.
“From the makers of Hindi Medium, Angrezi Medium and Bala, comes a hilarious social comedy Dasvi. It star s Abhishek Bachchan, Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur,” a note from the makers read.
Bachchan, 45, took to Instagram and shared his first look from the film as Ganga Ram Chaudhary. The poster features the Ludo star sporting a rugged look with a salt-and-pepper beard, standing against a backdrop of a scorecard. “Dasvi shoot begins,” Bachchan captioned the picture.
