Gulabo Sitabo is the story of a young tenant (Ayushmann) and his edgy landlord(Amitabh). It was set to release earlier in around May 2020, but it was preponed to April before theatres shut down. Now that every theatre is shut, Gulabo Sitabo is finally releasing direct to OTT. Makers of the film officially announced that Gulabo Sitabo is releasing on Amazon Prime Video from June 12, 2020.
Shoojit Sircar directs the film. He has worked with Ayushmann Khurrana in his Bollywood debut film, Vicky Donor. Shoojit has also worked with Amitabh Bachchan in Piku, which also starred Deepika Padukone and late Irrfan Khan.
Earlier also, before Prime Video release was officially announced, Shoojit had shown keen interest in releasing movies digitally if things don’t get normal soon. In an interview earlier, he said, “As a filmmaker, I’d want to see my film open in the theatres, but the situation today is unlike anything anyone had ever experienced. So, I’m open to a digital release if need be, but we will make a decision after May 3.”
The early reports also suggested that even though Shoojit is fine with OTT release, lead actors Ayushmann and Amitabh were not fine with it as they were ready to wait to things get normal and then release it on theatres.
Ayushmann Khurrana’s latest films Dream Girl, Bala, and Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan were all hit in theatres. Amitabh Bachchan is working in Ayan Mukherjee’s Bramhastra, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Mouni Roy in the lead.
