Shoojit Sircar’s quirky dramedy Gulabo Sitabo’s trailer was released recently and features a hilarious battle of wits between Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana. The film will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on June 12.
One aspect that stood in the teaser was Amitabh Bachchan’s different look and demeanor in the film. With a long beard, old school spectacles, a head scarf and a prosthetically-pronounced nose, Bachchan looks nearly unrecognisable, and his signature baritone too is replaced with a Lucknowi twang.
Shoojit Sircar and his creative team have transformed the ‘actor into a cantankerous old man for the film: combining strenuous hours of prosthetics, make-up and long hours of shoot in the scorching sun.’
Watch the whole process here:
Gulabo Sitabo is a unique 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.
A Rising Sun Films production, Gulabo Sitabo is directed by Shoojit Sircar, written by Juhi Chaturvedi and produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar. The movie will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on June 12.
