Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar has brought together Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana for his next film, Gulabo Sitabo. Ayushmann has worked with Shoojit Sircar in Vicky Donor and Amitabh Bachchan has worked with the director in Piku and Pink. Written by Juhi Chaturvedi, Gulabo Sitabo, is a quirky comedy.
Produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar the shooting for the film will begin in Lucknow next month and it will be released in November this year itself.
Talking about the interesting title Shoojit informed that it’s a colloquial term used in the Uttar Pradesh capital. Traditionally Gulabo and Sitabo are glove puppet characters from the north Indian state. Not revealing much about the title, the award-winning director said, “Regarding its association with the story, you have to wait and watch the film to know more.”
