Abhishek Bachchan’s upcoming OTT release Dasvi has a new trailer. The Abhishek Bachchan, Yami Gautam, and Nimrat Kaur’s film tells the story of incarcerated Chief Minister, played by Bachchan, attempting to clear his 10th standard board exams — a long-cherished dream that’s ignited due to unexpected circumstances and new characters entering his life in an unpredictable fashion.

Sharing the trailer, Abhishek wrote, “Public ki demand pe, aur bhaari bharkam vote se, present karte hai #DasviTrailer!

The story of the film, as per the trailer, revolves around the political life of Chaudhary and his wife Bimla, his time in jail, and the circumstances that motivate him to complete his 10th standard schooling. The trailer also shows his struggle of getting back to books, math, and language classes in jail in order to pass the crucial exam.

Earlier in the day, Bachchan took to social media to put out a note talking about his way of working in the past. He mentioned that he is not going to bow down or be ‘apologetic’ about his work anymore. The actor writes in his long note that people often mistake his humility as ‘lack of confidence’ but he has now decided to ‘play on the front foot.’

Bachchan’s full note reads, “I’m so excited to share Dasvi with all of you. It’s a film very, very close to my heart. I really believe in this film and what it has to say. To make a film that is entertaining and leaves you with a thought or something to think about gives me such joy. I hope it has a similar effect on you too. I’ve always been very reticent to speak about my films, borderline apologetic about my work. People call it humility or lack of confidence what I’ve made. I want to change that! I want to be unapologetic about this film. We have worked tremendously hard and I believe deeply that we’ve made a good film. A film worth watching with your family and friends. I’ve always been told, “let the work speak for itself.” I’m sure Dasvi will. But, I too, want to manifest the positivity around this film! (sic)”

Backed by Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films and Jio Studios, Dasvi, directed by debutante director Tushar Jalota, will stream on Netflix and Jio Cinema from April 7th.
