Shoojit Sircar is all set to direct his upcoming film Gulabo SItaro which has Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan. The film is set in Lucknow and Gulabo Sitabo is a fun metaphor used by the localites.
Shoojit shared, “Juhi and I have been working on this script for quite some time and as we all know when Juhi comes up with a story, it has her trademark quirk in it. As soon as I read it, I was extremely excited and shared it with Ronnie, my dear friend and producer, and to both Mr Bachchan and Ayushmann at the same time.” He further added, “I thought it would take some time to develop and proceed but everyone including the duo were so enthusiastic to do this script that they figured their dates and here we are, planning to release it this year. After Piku and Vicky Donor, I had been wanting to work with Mr Bachchan and Ayushmann on an equally quirky script so this fell perfectly in place.”
He was extremely happy that Big B and Ayushmann Khurrana were convinced about the script at once. The film is slated to release in November 2019.
