The flick will base on the life of one of the most intriguing fictional characters in Indian cinema, Bob Biswas from Vidya Balan starrer-Kaahani. Bob is an ordinary-looking, Kolkata based middle-age man who is actually a cold-blooded contract killer, associated with his trademark line, "Nomoshkar, ek minute" since 2012. The character played by immensely talented Saswata Chatterjee and since the arrival of the first part of Kaahani, fans have been waiting to know more about this guy and his story. The film is set to be a thriller.
 
The movie slated to go on floors in early 2020 and will release in the same year.
