Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushman Khurrana starrer Gulabo Sitabo will premiere on Amazon Prime videos from June 12. Shoojit Sircar has directed the movie and for the first time, these superstars are sharing the screen. It is Amazon’s biggest acquisition till date from Bollywood. The film will be available across 200 countries worldwide.
GulaboSitabo was earlier set to be launched in theatres. But the pandemic has forced the producers to go for the online release of the movie. The movie is being produced by Sheel Kumar and Ronnie Lahiri and written by Juhi Chaturvedi.
“GulaboSitabo is a slice of life dramedy that is a must-watch for families at home. I was excited about my role since the first time Shoojit showed me the character’s look. It took me almost three hours each day to get into character with its different look. I had a wonderful time working with my very talented co-star Ayushmann Khurrana. Even though we are constantly bantering in the film, it has been a pleasure working with him for the first time. This family entertainer has the power to cut across geographic boundaries, and we are pleased to bring GulaboSitabo to audiences across the globe,” said Amitabh Bachchan being excited about the film.
Ayushman Khurrana also shared his work experience with Megastar of the century and said, “GulaboSitabo 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. GulaboSitabo 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 make this film special. I hope audiences love the film and our chemistry when it premieres.”.
The movie is a quirky tale of Slimy Scheming Foxes attracting their clan in the game of upmanship with their agendas.
