Shoojit Sircar is all set to bring in two of the B-Town stars of different generations together in his upcoming film ‘Gulabo Sitabo’, the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana.

To a news outlet Shoojit has informed, “Juhi and I have been working on the 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 the script, they figured out their dates, and here we are, planning to release the film this year itself”.
Ayushmann Khurrana has posted in his Instagram account, “@amitabhbachchan sir aur meri Jodi, ekdum #GulaboSitabosi hogi?? Really excited to be a part of this project by my mentor @shoojitsircar! In cinemas this November”.
