The iconic Amitabh Bachchan will play the major character in Section 84, a courtroom drama thriller from Reliance Entertainment, Film Hangar, Saraswati Entertainment, and filmmaker Ribhu Dasgupta, which is being produced in conjunction with Jio Studios.
With the critically acclaimed success of Yudh (an Indian television thriller miniseries that premiered in 2014) and Te3n, this movie will represent famous actor Amitabh Bachchan and Ribhu Dasgupta’s third collaboration (released in 2016).
The official handle of Reliance Entertainment shared a video post confirming the film. The caption read, “Thrilled to announce #Section84 with the legend himself, @SrBachchan sir. Written & Directed by @ribhudasgupta. @FilmHangar #SaraswatiEntertainment @jiostudios @vivekbagrawal @samkchop”
Confirming the same, Amitabh Bachchan shared, “A delight once again to be in the company of distinguished creative minds for this new venture, and the challenge it provokes, for me. #Section84 @ribhu_dasgupta @reliance.entertainment @filmhangar #SaraswatiEntertainment @officialjiostudios”
As implied by the title, the movie will centre on Section 84, also known as the Act of a Person of Unsound Mind, which states that nothing is done by a person who, at the time of doing it, is incapable of knowing the nature of the act or that he is doing what is either wrong or against the law due to unsoundness of mind is considered an offence.
Ribhu Dasgupta will both write and direct the movie.
Ganapath, Ghoomer, The Umesh Chronicles, Project K, Butterfly, and Khakee 2 are among the other films that Amitabh Bachchan is winding up.
