New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Abhishek Bachchan's much-awaited film The Big Bull is hitting the headlines after it was released on Disney+Hotstar on Thursday evening. Portraying the role of Harshad Mehta, Abhishek is being lauded for his acting, however, the weak narrative failed to impress the audience.

Now, as the film is out, Abhishek got chatty with Bollywood Bubble and revealed how his family, including Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan and his wife Aishwarya, reacted after watching the film. Talking about his mother, Abhishek said that she is superstitious and doesn't see his film before release. Since the film has released a day ahead of Jaya Bachchan's birthday, so, she considered it a present and is bound to watch it on her birthday. Well, the same goes for his wife Aishwarya, she also watches all her films after the release.

When asked about his father Big B's reaction he said, "My dad had wonderful things to say. In a sense, I'm already happy, because the one voice that matters to me has already endorsed the film, so I'm happy about that."

Abhishek's niece also reacted to his film, and taking to her Instagram handle, she posted a story and captioned it as "the one and only Big Bull".

Meanwhile, The Big Bull is witnessing mixed response on social media, after watching Abhishek's acting in the film, netizens were reminded of Guru. Taking to Twitter, they heaped praises for him, however, they criticised the film calling the narrative weak. Comparing the film with Prateik Gandhi's Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story, netizens felt The Big Bull's narrative was weak.
