Amazon Prime Video to premiere Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Gulabo Sitabo on June 12, 2020

A couple of days ago Bollywood Hungama was the first to report that video streaming giant Amazon Prime Video had acquired the rights of the Amitabh Bachchan – Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Gulabo Sitabo. In fact, we had reported that owing to the ongoing Covid-19 lockdown the Shoojit Sircar directorial would release directly on the OTT platform while forgoing a customary theatrical release. Today, Amazon Prime Video announced the global premiere of the highly anticipated Hindi film Gulabo Sitabo exclusively on the streaming service. The movie will premiere exclusively on June 12, 2020, on Amazon Prime Video and will be available in 200 countries and territories worldwide.

“At Amazon, we’re listening to our customers, and working backward from there,” said Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video, India. “Gulabo Sitabo is one of the most anticipated films of the year. We are happy to exclusively premiere Gulabo Sitabo on Prime Video. It is the first step in our endeavour to bring superior cinematic experiences to our customer’s doorstep.”

“This is the dawn of a new era for Indian entertainment,” said director, Shoojit Sircar. “I am happy that a global audience will be able to watch our gritty dramedy, and enjoy what the film has in store for them. Gulabo Sitabo is a quirky, light-hearted movie that the audience can enjoy with their families. It has been a wonderful experience working with Mr Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana on the film.”

“Indian audiences have been eagerly awaiting the release of Gulabo Sitabo and we are delighted that Amazon Prime Video will now be premiering the movie for our customers. The global release of Gulabo Sitabo on Prime Video, in over 200 countries and territories, will ensure maximum reach and visibility for the film not just in India but around the world. We are excited about the new offering and are happy to, once again, bring to our customers the best of entertainment through this release,” said Gaurav Gandhi, Director and Country General Manager, Amazon Prime Video India.

Gulabo Sitabo is a slice of life, a dramedy that is a must-watch for families at home,” said actor Amitabh Bachchan, “I was excited about my role since the first time Shoojit showed me the character’s look. It took me almost 3 hours each day to get into character with its different look. I had a wonderful time working with my very talented co-star Ayushmann Khurrana. Even though we are constantly bantering in the film, it has been a pleasure working with him for the first time. This family entertainer has the power to cut across geographic boundaries and we are pleased to bring Gulabo Sitabo to audiences across the globe.”

Actor Ayushmann Khurrana said, “Gulabo Sitabo is a special film for me. It made me reunite with my mentor Shoojit da after Vicky Donor. Whatever I’m today is because of him and I’m happy that he made me a part of his vision again. Gulabo Sitabo also sees me share the screen space with Mr. Amitabh Bachchan for the first time and it’s a huge moment, it’s a dream come true for me. I have secretly wished to work with him for many, many years and Shoojit da made this happen and I will be indebted to him forever. It has truly been an honour for me to work with a legend and I feel enriched as an actor after the experience. What I love about the film is its sheer simplicity – the fleeting moments of simple humour in the banter between a landlord and tenant make this film really special. I hope audiences love the film and our chemistry when it premieres.”

Starring Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana, Gulabo Sitabo is the quirky tale of two slimy scheming foxes in a game of one-upmanship, each one attracting other members to their clan and each one with an agenda of his own. A Rising Sun Films production, Gulabo Sitabo is directed by Shoojit Sircar, written by Juhi Chaturvedi and produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar.

Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Shubh Mangal Saavdhan to get a sequel?


Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Shubh Mangal Saavdhan to get a sequel?

Shubh Mangal Saavdhan was a sleeper hit of the 2017 and its clever writing and smash hit performances by not just the leads actors Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar but by the entire supporting cast was lauded by masses. The film touched upon a rather sensitive but important subject of erectile dysfunction and the way the film was treated and made was quite commendable. It struck a chord instantly with the multiplex audience as well as cinema lovers in tier two and three towns. Following up on the success of the film, our sources close to the production house have told us that there is a sequel being planned in the offing. Though there is no official announcement made from either of the two production houses; Eros Productions and Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions, there is a strong contention that the makers might be interested in the sequel to carry forward the story of Mudit and Sugandha.

We still are unclear whether the makers would repeat the same cast again or sign different actors altogether. But we would love to see a sequel to this interesting concept again! Ayushmann and Bhumi are a hit pair who everybody love. They have a great chemistry off screen too. Interestingly, Bhumi made a debut in a rather unconventional style with Ayushmann in Dum Laga Ke Haisha in 2015 and got noticed for her acting prowess.
