Talking about Gulabo Sitabo, Shoojit 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.”
He further shared the story behind the title of the film. Gulabo and Sitabo are glove puppet characters made of papier-mache. They are dressed in colourful clothes, trinkets and hail from North Indian state.
The film borrows its title from their names, Sitabo is the worn-out, overworked wife of a man, while Gulabo is his enticing mistress.
Actor- singer Ayushmann Khurana gave two blockbusters in 2018- Andhadhundh and Badhaai Ho. Also an acclaimed singer, Ayushmann has sung melodious tracks like Pani da Rang, Mitti di Khusbhoo, Nazm Nazm. Ayushmann Khurana is also working on ‘Bala’ with Yami Gautam and Bhumi Pednekar.
Gulabo Sitabo be the first time that Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurana will be working together. The crew will begin shooting next month in Lucknow.
