Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan starrer ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ just released today on Amazon Prime. Amidst the film’s digital release an interesting fact about its casting has come to light as director Shoojit Sircar revealed that Ayushmann bagged ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ at Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone‘s reception.

In an interview with Zoom TV, Shoojit Sircar revealed, “Yes, he (Ayushmann) was the first choice but before that, we debated a lot. His casting was done later. First was Mr Bachchan’s casting and then I remember I think I broke the news to him, I remember it was…Deepika Padukone’s reception (laughs). So at that reception, I gave him the basic narration, I remember. And you know that’s when we agreed (to do the film). He was excited, he was jumping since then. So, I think we first bounced the idea to him at their reception. Suddenly mere ko yaad aa raha hai. I think you are the first one I am telling this. So, that’s when I told him the idea.”

Ayushmann and Amitabh’s pairing has been most looked forward to right now as their fans are super excited. Earlier in an interview with IANS, Ayushmann had said that Big B helped him improvise his lines. “That was such an eye-opener for me. I remember when I was marking my own lines in the script and he was like why are you marking your own lines you should mark my lines also. That goes to show he believes in the totality of the process, he’s not a selfish actor, he is a collaborator,” shared Ayushmann.
