Shoojit Sircar directorial Gulabo Sitabo will see Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana sharing screen space for the first time.
Amazon Prime Video on Thursday announced that the Shoojit Sircar directorial Gulabo Sitabo will be available for streaming from June 12 onwards. Touted as a ‘quirky dramedy,’ the movie features Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Talking about his experience of working on Gulabo Sitabo, Ayushmann Khurrana said, “Gulabo Sitabo is a special film for me. It made me reunite with my mentor Shoojit da after Vicky Donor. Whatever I’m today is because of him, and I’m happy that he made me a part of his vision again. Gulabo Sitabo also sees me share the screen space with Mr Amitabh Bachchan for the first time and it’s a huge moment. It’s a dream come true for me. I have secretly wished to work with him for many, many years and Shoojit da made this happen and I will be indebted to him forever. It has truly been an honour for me to work with a legend and I feel enriched as an actor after the experience. What I love about the film is its sheer simplicity – the fleeting moments of simple humour in the banter between a landlord and tenant makes this film really special. I hope audiences love the film and our chemistry when it premieres.”
The official synopsis of the movie reads, “Starring Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana, Gulabo Sitabo is the quirky tale of two slimy scheming foxes in a game of one upmanship, each one attracting other members to their clan and each one with an agenda of his own
