After creating much stir with Amitabh Bachchan's grumpy, prosthetic laden landlord avatar, the first look of Ayushmann Khurrana from their upcoming movie Gulabo Sitabo is out along with the new release date.
Directed by Shoojit Sircar the film is set to be released on February 28, 2020 and not in April as, the makers announced on Wednesday.
The still from the movie that was released has Amitabh and Ayushmann standing in the middle of the road, which appears to be much like a crime scene with police and a van in the backgroud. While Amitabh is dressed in baggy green kurta witha skull cap and a muffler, Ayushman is sporting a regular look with brown shirt and white pyajamas. Both of them look disgrulted and puzzled over a certain situation.<
