After releasing the fantastic trailer, the makers of Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Gulabo Sitabo dropped the first song, Jootan Phenk, which adds the quirky flavour to the film. Crooned by Piyush Mishra and composed by Abhishek Arora, the track showcases the camaraderie between the two lead actors. In the film, Amitabh Bachchan as a Lucknowi landlord and Ayushmann as his tenant. While the film was expected to have a theatrical the makers decided to release on an OTT platform due to the current pandemic situation.

"This is the dawn of a new era for Indian entertainment," said director, Shoojit Sircar. "I am happy that a global audience will be able to watch our gritty dramedy, and enjoy what the film has in store for them. Gulabo Sitabo is a quirky, light-hearted movie that the audience can enjoy with their families. It has been a wonderful experience working with Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana on the film."

"Gulabo Sitabo is a slice of life, dramedy that is a must watch for families at home," said actor Amitabh Bachchan, "I was excited about my role since the first time Shoojit showed me the character’s look. It took me almost 3 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 Gulabo Sitabo to audiences across the globe." The film also features Vijay Raaz and Brijendra Kala in pivotal roles and will stream on Amazon from June 12.
