Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan reveals he had to sit down for 5 hours in his makeup chair to prepare for his role in Gulabo Sitabo

Over his decades-long career in the film industry, there is little that Amitabh Bachchan has not done already. However, that simply doesn't mean that every new film project comes with its own new difficulties and challenges. In a recent interview with IANS, Abhishek Bachchan has revealed that he had to sit down for 5 hours in his makeup chair. The many hour's long makeups were to ensure that Bacchan looked like the character of Mirza in Gulabo Sitabo.
 
Talking about the process of working on Gulabo Sitabo the veteran actor said, "Each film project is a challenge for those that agree to work on it. GiBoSiBo (the short name by which the film is being promoted) was no less."
 
He added saying, "Yes (there was) the prosthetic make-up routine each day for four to five hours and its discomfort, the posture of the old Mirza (his character in the film), the extraneous weather of the summer of May. But if you wish to call yourself a professional then it all comes with the territory, and you damn well accept and enjoy it."
 
Amitabh Bachchan also revealed that he loved shooting in Lucknow as he is really attached to the city. He added saying, "The takeaway -- Lucknow the city, the people -- an absolute delight to work in and with."
 
Shoojit Sircar's Gulabo Sitabo stars Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana as bickering neighbors who cannot stop fighting. Ayushmann Khurrana has collaborated with Shoojit Sircar before in Vicky Donor. Gulabo Sitabo premiered on Amazon Prime Video.
