To an utter surprise, around 2000 films are produced in various languages in India, and with this massive number, we can imagine the popularity of cinema in India. From the very beginning to this current scenario, Indian Cinema has grown rapidly. Every era has its specialty. Indian actors have a separate and extra fan base. This kind of fan base cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. This industry is growing day by day, era by era. But it is extremely sad to mention that for the first time in the history of Indian cinema, it is facing a shutdown, that too for this much longer period and due to this Pandemic of COVID-19. Not only the Bollywood cinema industry is affected, but also the entire world is suffering. The entertainment industry is completely down right now. Especially in a country like India where the Cinema craze is so huge, it has affected the people who are related to the Cinema industry. Many movies were shot long before but were not able to release, many were stopped in the halfway or many are just stuck for a little work. In the list of these affected movies, some are led by many A-List Actors.

Here today we are talking about the movie "GULABO-SITABO". The name itself is unique so as the cast. The versatile actor Ayushmann Khurrana will be seen in this movie with the living legend himself Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. The casting is itself is so interesting that the movie lovers are waiting desperately for this movie. But, the saddest part is that this movie also likes any other move that has stuck in the lockdown process where all the cinema theater and PVR are strictly closed. And we all are very much aware of the fact that this has been done for safety only. The shooting and editing were completed before the COVID-19 was declared pandemic. But the post-production works were shut down due to the present scenario of the world. Previously the film was set to release in November 2019, it was then changed to February 28, 2020then they had decided that this movie is going to release on April 19, 2020. Which got canceled as there was no way that this movie or any other movie should be released? But for the lover for the movies and the fans of the cinema, the producers have finally decided t release this movie. To surprise us with great news, the producers have finally decided to fix the releasing date. And finally came up with the date, June 12, 2020.

As Sircar wanted to reach as much audience as possible, so nothing could be better than the OTT platform as it could be released on the platform in 200 countries simultaneously. Sircar also added that previously he never ha such experience of releasing any movie on a platform like this, but due to this COVID-19 situation, this would be the best they can do as there is nobody that can say exactly when the cinemas will open.

With the amazing makeup and of course and superb expressions of Amitabh Bachchan has created magic in the look. After that, the look of Ayushmann Khuranna was revealed in October 2019. For the first time Ayushmann Khuranna and the legendary Amitabh Bachchan are teaming up and it is going to create history.
Not only the casting and release are interesting, but the plot of the movie is also very interesting. There is a bit of comedy that revolves around the two characters named Gulabo (Amitabh Bachchan) and Sitabo (Ayushman Khuranna). It is a highlight of the daily problems that have been faced by a common man who originally hails from Uttar Pradesh. You will find full local humor in this story.
As we all are usually aware of the great star cast of the movie, there is no need o mention it again. But what these stars have to say about the movie, that's a bit exciting to know.
