Shoojit Sircar’s Gulabo Sitabo will reunite Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana for the first time. It was supposed to release on 24th April 2020 will now release on 28th February 2020.
However, there is no official reason announced for the preponement but it’s anyway good news for Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan’s fans. Ayushmann’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhaan will release on 14th February.
After Meri Pyaari Bindu-Bareilly Ki Barfi-Shubh Mangal Saavdhaan, Andhadhun-Badhaai Ho, now we’ll see both Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhaan & Gulabo Sitabo releasing back to back with the gap of a couple of weeks.
Speaking on getting together India’s masterful thespian and the maverick young star together onscreen, director Shoojit Sircar says, “I and Juhi 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 Ayushman at the same time. 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 Ayushman on an equally quirky script so this fell perfectly in place. Speaking on the title, the story is based in Lucknow, and Gulabo Sitabo is a fun colloquial metaphor used by the locals..as to it’s connected to the story, wait and watch the film to know more.”
Directed by Shoojit Sircar, Gulabo Sitabo is written by Juhi Chaturvedi and produced by Ronnie Lahiri & Sheel Kumar, being a Rising Sun Films Production.
