The sudden coronavirus lockdown disturbed the schedule of the movie which is why the makers decided to release it on the online platform Amazon Prime. It was otherwise set to release in the month of April.
Sircar in an interview said:
“I am happy that finally I can put forward my film as quickly as possible. As soon as the story was baked, I wanted to serve it. These are unforeseen circumstances, we all have to go through it,”
This is Sircar’s first digital release:
“I have never experimented on a digital platform so this is the first time that we are releasing a film straight on a streamer. It”s quite exciting as digital is going to be the future,”
Amitabh Bachchan on working with Ayushmann Khurrana said:
“I had a wonderful time working with my very talented co-star Ayushmann Khurrana. Even though we are constantly bantering in the film, it has been a pleasure working with him for the first time.
“This family entertainer has the power to cut across geographic boundaries and we are pleased to bring Gulabo Sitabo to audiences across the globe,”
“It made me reunite with my mentor Shoojit da after Vicky Donor. Whatever I’m today is because of him and I’m happy that he made me a part of his vision again. Gulabo Sitabo also sees me share the screen space with Mr Amitabh Bachchan for the first time and it’s a huge moment, it’s a dream come true for me,”
“Experience of watching Gulabo Sitabo on Amazon will be no less than watching the film in theatres. I saw Roma, which directly released on a streamer in 2018, and then watched The Bicycle Thief and Pather Panchali, and that gave me that much a cinematic kick when I saw these films on a digital platform.”
Waiting for 12 June and so what buzz this movie makes.
