And, this BTS video sums up just that as the actors look so convincing and natural in their act. Watch it here:
Gulabo Sitabo is being 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". Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of Mirza Sheikh, an old haveli owner in the film while Ayushmann Khurrana plays his tenant, Baankey Sodhi, who refuses to move out of the haveli. A Rising Sun Films production, "Gulabo Sitabo" is produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar.
Shoojit Sircar on going digital for Gulabo Sitabo release
The director said that he had an experience of his movie remaining unreleased, and believes it is better to release it as soon it is ready. "We had made the film and it was supposed to release in April. Normally when my film is ready, I have a very bad habit -- I have to serve it to the audience right then. So that was there and then this crisis (COVID-19 pandemic) came upon us," Sircarexplained his decision to take the film directly to OTT Ronnie (Ronnie Lahiri) discussed with me that if this (digital release) happens, 'what's your view?'. And my view was very clear. I wanted to reach out as much and he told me this will simultaneously be released in some 200 countries. I never had this kind of release. And this is a platform where I have never experimented," he was quoted as saying to IANS.
