"When I knew nothing about acting, I only knew one name, Amitabh Bachchan. From a boy who's hypnotised by him to actually getting the opportunity to stand alongside him in one frame, life has truly completed a circle for me.

"This is what dreams are made of, as the Bachchan mania continues for me. This time I am a part of it. Thank you, thank you Ribhu sir, you have no idea how my younger self is filled with joy to experience the mania with you. We've all been struck for years now," the 37-year-old actor said in a statement.

Section 84 marks the third collaboration between Bachchan and Dasgupta, following TV miniseries Yudh and Te3n.

The upcoming film is presented by Reliance Entertainment in association with Jio Studios and produced by Reliance Entertainment and Film Hangar.
