This will be the third collaboration between Amitabh Bachchan and Ribhu Dasgupta, following the critical success of Yudh (an Indian television thriller miniseries released in 2014) and Te3n (released in 2016).
Reliance Entertainment confirmed the film’s announcement through a video post on their official social media handle. The caption of the post read, “Thrilled to announce #Section84 with the legend himself, @SrBachchan sir. Written & Directed by @ribhudasgupta. @FilmHangar #SaraswatiEntertainment @jiostudios @vivekbagrawal @samkchop.”
In his confirmation, Amitabh Bachchan shared his excitement about working with the team once again. He said, “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 the title suggests, the film’s plot revolves around Section 84, also known as the Act of a person of unsound mind. The section states that nothing is an offence if done by a person who, at the time of doing it, due to unsoundness of mind, is incapable of knowing the act’s nature, or that he is doing what is wrong or contrary to the law.
Ribhu Dasgupta has written and will be directing the film, which is set to be an intriguing legal drama. Along with ‘Section 84’, Amitabh Bachchan is currently busy wrapping up other projects such as Ganapath, Ghoomer, The Umesh Chronicles, Project K, Butterfly, and Khakee 2.
