Last week, Amitabh Bachchan began shooting for Shoojit Sircar’s Gulabo Sitabo in Lucknow. The makers revealed his look in the film a few days ago and it has been generating a lot of intrigue among the audience. The film also stars Ayushmann Khurrana who is currently in Kanpur shooting for Amar Kaushik’s Bala. He is also dabbling with the promotions of Article 15 simultaneously.
Team Box Office India exclusively spoke to the Badhaai Ho actor yesterday who told us that he will join team Gulabo Sitabo shortly and will start shooting for the quirky family comedy in Lucknow from mid-July.
While details regarding the film are still kept under wraps, let us tell you that Gulabo and Sitabo are characters from puppet folk tales who are the rich and poor wives of the same man. From what we have heard, the actors’ characters also share a bittersweet relationship and they might be playing the parts of a landlord and a tenant.
Gulabo Sitabo is all set to release on April 24, 2020. It is produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar under the banner of Rising Sun Pictures.
The busy actor will also kick-start the shoot of Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan, a homosexual love story set in the heartland, later this year. While many names are floating around, the makers are yet to announce the male lead opposite Ayushmann in the film.
The film will be directed by Hitesh Kewalya and produced by Eros Now and Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions. It will hit theatres on Valentine’s Day 2020.
