Gulabo Sitabo: Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana to star in October team’s next
Shoojit Sircar is one of the best directors in Bollywood at present. His collaboration with his trusted writer Juhi Chathurvedi has resulted in acclaimed films like ‘Vicky Donor’, ‘Piku’ and ‘October’. The writer-director duo are coming together once again for a fun filled entertainer titled ‘Gulabo Sitabo’. The movie will mark the first time coming together of Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khuranna. The makers have planned to start shooting in June an release it in November.
The movie was officially announced last day Taran Adarsh. He has tweeted,
IT’S OFFICIAL… Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana team up for the first time… Shoojit Sircar to direct quirky family comedy #GulaboSitabo… Written by Juhi Chatturvedi… Produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar… Nov 2019 release.
It must be noted that Shoojit Sircar has earlier directed Ayushmann Khuranna in ‘Vicky Donor’ and Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Piku’. Both the films were huge hits and won three awards each at the National level. Expectations will naturally be high when Shooji Sircar brings Bachchan and Ayushmann together.
The director is currently working on ‘Sardar Udham Singh’ starring Vicky Kaushal. It is a film about Udham Singh, a revolutionary freedom fighter who assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer, the former lieutenant governor of Punjab in revenge for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. Shoot is currently underway and it will hit screens only after ‘Gulabo Sitabo’.
