Shoojit Sircar has brought together two acting stalwarts, Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana for his next project, titled Gulabo Sitabo. The film is penned by Juhi Chaturvedi, who has previously worked on Shoojit Sircar's film October. And it is not just us who is excited about this collaboration, but even Big B and Ayushmann are looking forward to work together and have already booked their dates to shoot the film this year itself and release it in November!
An excited Shoojit Sircar told Mumbai Mirror, "Juhi and I have been working on this script for a while now. We all know whenever she comes up with a story, it has her trademark quirk. As soon as I read it, I shared it with Mr Bachchan and Ayushmann at the same time. I thought it would take some time to develop and take it forward, but everyone was so enthusiastic to work on this script, they figured out their dates and here we are, planning to release the film this year itself.” An enthusiastic Ayushmann had posed on Instagram, "@amitabhbachchan sir aur meri Jodi, ekdum #GulaboSitabo si hogi ?? Really excited to be a part of this project by my mentor @shoojitsircar! In cinemas this November."
While the cast has already got us excited, the film's story is going to be even more exciting. Apparently Gulabo and Sitabo are two popular glove puppet characters from Uttar Pradesh. The papier-mâché puppets are adorned in colourful outfits and trinkets. In the story, Sitabo is the overworked wife, while Gulabo is the same man's glamorous mistress. Speaking about the film's title, Shoojit went on to add, "Regarding its association with the story… you will have to wait and watch the film to know more.”
Amitabh Bachchan recently started work on Rumi Jaffery's directorial Chehre with Emraan Hashmi. While Ayushmann is shooting for Amar Kaushik’s Bala, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam. Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar is busy filming with Vicky Kaushal for the Udham Singh biopic. The trio will wrap up their ongoing projects to start shooting for Gulabo Sitabo from next month. The film is produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar production.
