One of the big films which opted for the direct OTT release is Gulabo Sitabo. Directed by Shoojit Sircar, this film features Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead roles. The trailer of this film dropped just a while ago. It looks like a quirky and heartwarming comedy-drama.
Going by the trailer, the film seems to explore the relationship between a naggy old man and his tenant. Ayushmann is a perfect fit in the role of a middle-class youngster who is utterly upset with his life. On the other side, Amitabh Bachchan also looked like a perfect choice for the role of the house owner. The film is a complete entertainer with a lot of comical elements in it. It brings full positive vibes to the viewers. Looks like team Shoojit Sircar has yet another winner in hand.
This is Shoojit's second film with both Ayushmann and Amitabh. He worked with Ayushmann for the film Vicky Donor and Amitabh for the film Piku. This is the first time collaboration between Amitabh and Ayushmann. The makers earlier planned to release the film in June this year. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the team has opted for a digital release. Now, Gulabo Sitabo will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on June 12. Apart from this film, Amazon Prime Video is also premiering six other films on its platform. On the flip side, Shoojit Sircar is currently working on his next directorial Sardar Uddham Singh. This biographical drama features Vicky Kaushal in the lead role.
