Shoojit Sircar’s Gulabo Sitabo will directly premiere on Amazon Prime Video on June 12. Set in Lucknow, the quirky comedy stars Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana. The film was earlier slated for theatrical release on April 17. However, following the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the makers have opted for a straight-to-digital release. 

“This is the dawn of a new era for Indian entertainment,” said Shoojit. “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.”

Gulabo Sitabo is described as a 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. The film is written by Juhi Chaturvedi and produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar.

Gulabo Sitabo is a slice-of-life dramedy that is a must-watch for families at home,” Amitabh Bachchan said. “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 talented co-star Ayushmann Khurrana.” 

Ayushmann added, “What I love about the film is its sheer simplicity - the fleeting moments of simple humour in the banter between a landlord and tenant makes this film really special. I hope audiences love the film and our chemistry when it premieres.”

Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video, India, said, “At Amazon we’re listening to our customers, and working backwards from there. 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.”
