Actors Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana will team up for Shoojit Sircar’s next film, Gulabo Sitabo. The film, which will see Ayushmann and the Big B share screen space for the first time, is written by Juhi Chaturvedi, and the film will go on floors next month. Shoojit has worked with Ayushmann in Vicky Donor, Big B and Shoojit have unveiled their magic in Piku, and therefore, it will be highly interesting to see Ayushmann and Big B on the screen together.
Shoojit will be collaborating with Juhi like his previous films and he said,
“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.”
Talking about the title of the film, Sircar informed that it is a colloquial term used in the Uttar Pradesh capital. The film will be produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar, the film is likely to hit theatres in November. Currently, Shoojit is directing Vicky Kaushal starrer Udham Singh biopic, and Ayushmann Khurrana is busy shooting for Amar Kaushik’s Bala opposite Yami Gautam and Bhumi Pednekar.
