Abhishek Bachchan recently hosted a screening of his upcoming Netflix release Dasvi at Agra Central Jail, a first for a Bollywood film. Portions of the film were shot in and around the premise. After hours, Junior Bachchan had promised the inmates that he would screen the film for them.
Abhishek took to Instagram to share a video of his promise to screen Dasvi for inmates and the film’s screening in jail. The video’s caption read: “A promise is a promise!! Last night I managed to fulfill a commitment I made a year ago. The first screening of our #Dasvi film was held for the guards and inmates of Agra Central Jail. We shot the movie here. Their reactions are memories that I will remember and cherish for a lifetime.”
In addition to screening the film, Abhishek also donated books to the prison library.
Directed by Tushar Jalota, Dasvi stars Abhishek Bachchan, Nimrat Kaur, and Yami Gautam in the lead roles. While Kaur plays Bachchan’s wife in the film, Gautam will be seen playing an inspector in the film.
Apart from Dasvi, Abhishek Bachchan also has a Tamil thriller SSS-7 and Amazon Prime Video series Breathe Season 3 in the works.
