Megastar Amitabh Bachchan who is teaming up with Emraan Hashmi for the first time in Rumi Jaffrey's thriller Chehre is all set to team up with Ayushmann Khurrana for Shoojit Sircar's upcoming multi-starrer Gulabo Sitabo. Written by Sircar's frequent collaborator Juhi Chaturvedi of Vicky Donor, Piku and October fame, Gulabo Sitabo will be produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar.

Sircar said in a statement: "Me and Juhi have been working on this script for quite some time...and as we all know, when Juhi comes up with a story it has her trademark quirk in it. 

"As soon as I read it, I was extremely excited and shared it with Ronnie, my dear friend and producer and to both Mr Bachchan and Ayushmann at the same time," he added.

Sircar thought it would take some time to develop and proceed. "But everyone including the duo were so enthusiastic to do this script, that they figured their dates and here we are, planning to release it this year," said the director. "After Piku and Vicky Donor, I had been wanting to work with Mr Bachchan and Ayushmann on an equally quirky script so this fell perfectly in place." 

As for the film's title, he shared that the story is based in Lucknow, and Gulabo Sitabo is a fun colloquial metaphor used by the locals...as to it's connect to the story, wait and watch the film to know more".

The family comedy, set in Lucknow, will release in November 2019.
