While Amitabh is almost unrecognisable as a wizened old man with a droopy  and prosthetic nose, Ayushmann sports disheveled hair and loose clothing, seeming completely hassled at something.

Ayushmann will reunite with Shoojit seven years after his debut film, Vicky Donor. Interestingly, Amitabh and Shoojit have also worked together in the commercially and critically acclaimed 2015 film Piku.

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Shoojit had explained that Gulabo Sitabo are popular glove puppet characters in Uttar Pradesh. "In the story, which borrows its title from their names, Sitabo is the worn-out, overworked wife of a man, while Gulabo is his enticing mistress. It is peppered with local humour and songs that depict the nuances of daily life," the director has said.

Set in Lucknow, the film is billed as a quirky family comedy, penned by Sircar's longtime collaborator Juhi Chaturvedi. Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar are the producers.

Meanwhile, Ayushmann is also prepping for his upcoming film Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan which is a sequel to the 2017 blockbuster Shubh Mangal Savdhan. Apart from this, he is awaiting the release of Bala alongside Yami Gautam and Bhumi Pednekar
