Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan are all set to come together for the first time in Shoojit Sircar directorial Gulabo Sitabo. It has been one of the most-awaited movies of the year. While it couldn't have a traditional release in multiplex due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will release on Amazon Prime on June 12. On Friday, the makers of the film dropped the trailer and left the fans in splits with another off-beat subject portrayed in a comical way. Gulabo Sitabo shows a hilarious journey of a landlord and the tenant. While Ayushmann plays the role of a tenant who refuses to leave the 'haveli', Big B plays the strict landlord who loves his house the most in this world.
Gulabo Sitabo trailer has released. Watch Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana lock horns in the hilarious trailer of Shoojit Sircar directorial.
Gulabo Sitabo is a world where two slimy scheming foxes are caught in a game of one upmanship, each one attracting other members to their clan and each one with an agenda of his own.
Meet ‘Mirza’ (Amitabh Bachchan) – a 78-year-old landlord, who would move heaven and earth for his most prized possession – an old depleted mansion in the heart of Lucknow. But this garden of roses comes with its own cluster of ‘pricky thorns’ – tenants.
Amongst them most prominently, ‘Baankey’ (Ayushmann Khuranna) a shrewd, sly and squatted tenant, who matches Mirza bit for bit in their ceaseless bantering. Gulabo Sitabo is a quirky slice-of-life dramedy where Mirza and Baankey, much like Tom and Jerry are unique and unmatched, friend and foe, naughty and smart, little and large – all things required to produce chaos.

Earlier, Ayushmann Khurrana shared the first glimpse of the film that featured a voice-over introducing two goats as Gulabo and Sitabo as they bleated in the backdrop. The voice-over said, "Pehle Sabko Namaste Kariye, Salaam Kariye, Sastriyaakaal kariye." It then introduced Gulabo and Sitabo saying, "Yeh hai Gubalo aur yeh bhayi sitabo hain...Ye rehne wali hai Hazratganj wali... aur yeh ameendabad wali gadbadjhaale ki rehne wali hai...Chandani Chowk ki rehne wali... Ye badi hoshiyaar hai, woh badi chaalak hai", and the clip concluded with the goats bleating again with the title of the flick - 'Gulabo Sitabo, Ek Priceless Jodi.'
Ayushmann wrote, "Hoshiyaari aur chalaaki ki ek priceless jodi Trailer out soon. Catch #GiboSiboOnPrime on June 12 for its World Premiere, @primevideoin."
Earlier, in an interview with PTI, Ayushmann talked about the story of Gulabo Sitabo. "Gulabo Sitabo is an extremely simple film. It's a sweet film about the banter between a landlord and a tenant. I'm the tenant, Bachchan sir is the landlord and we are always at loggerheads. It's as simple as that. The magic is, sometimes you find simplicity most exciting in life and that's what the film is about," Ayushmann told PTI.
The quirky comedy was slated to hit the screens on April 17 but could not see the light of day due to the shuttering of cinema theatres over coronavirus concerns.
