The trailer of Gulabo Sitabo starring Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana was released on Friday.
Set in Lucknow, it shows Bachchan as Mirza, a 78-year-old landlord who lives in an old haveli and Khurrana as Baankey, who plays the role of a tenant. The two share a relationship filled with comebacks and sarcasm as they both cannot stand one another. Mirza wants to get rid of his tenant but Baankey won’t leave at any costs. The film also stars Vijay Raaz, Brijendra Kala among many others.
Gulabo Sitabo director Shoojit Sircar earlier told PTI, “Ayushmann is family, Mr Bachchan has become a dear friend. Juhi is writing again after October, Ronnie is producing in a row. My cinematographer Abhik Mukhopadhyay is coming back and Shantanu Moitra is returning as music director. We understand each other very well. Our camaraderie is very good on the sets. That is what makes it most important that you enjoy the process and method. You talk, you debate.
The movie will be released exclusively on Amazon Prime TV on June 12. It was earlier planned as a theatrical release, but due to the ongoing coronavirus lockdown, the movie was decided to be released on the OTT platform.
