Preparations are underway for the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer, Gulabo Sitabo and the veteran actor has commenced shooting for the film. Helmed by Shoojit Sircar, this film is one to look forward to for a number of reasons; mostly because Amitabh Bachchan will be seen on screen for the first time alongside Ayushmann Khurrana. Fans, brace yourselves because Amitabh Bachchan’s first look from the film leaked online and is going viral on social media.
The picture shows the Sholay actor with a large, scruffy beard, a skull cap and a scarf draped around his neck and atop his head. At first glance, the actor is completely unrecognizable.
Talking about the experience of his first day on the sets of the film, Amitabh took to his blog and wrote, “First days are first days and first days are a reckoning of what is to be done what needs to be observed .. what what what .. ahhh confusing as any other .. but hopefully we shall get it right soon ..It has begun , and that is important .. so another environ clothings make up crew artists all new and ready to give the best.”
The film is a comedy which is set in heart of Lucknow and will see Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana working together for the first time. Shooting for the film has already commenced and has been written by Juhi Chaturvedi and will be produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar.
The veteran actor, after a brief hiatus for films, will also be seen in Brahmastra and Chehre next year. He will also be making an appearance in a sports biography film called Jhund where Bachchan will essay the role of a professor. The film is based on an NGO founder Vijay Barse and will be releasing on September 20. We can’t wait for these upcoming releases.
