Amitabh Bachchan & Ayushman Khurana team up for Gulabo Sitabo
Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and actor Ayushmann Khurrana will come together on the big screen for the first time for filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming film Gulabo Sitabo.
The family comedy, set in Lucknow, will release in November 2019.
Written by director Soojit Sircar’s frequent collaborator Juhi Chaturvedi of Vicky Donor, Piku and October fame, Gulabo Sitabo will be produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar.
Talking about the project, Sircar said, “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.”
“But everyone including the duo was so enthusiastic to do this script, that they figured their dates and here we are, planning to release it this year,” said the director.
“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 added.
Big B took to Twitter to announce his latest film.
