In his next release, that is Shoojit Sircar’s oddly entitled Gulabo Sitabo, Ayushmann Khurrana plays tenant to a disgruntled old landlord played by Amitabh Bachchan. Says Ayushmann excitedly, “After a series of socially relevant films Gulabo Sitabo is my first out-and-out entertainer about these two squabbling souls from different generations. Amitji is my landlord. I am his tenant. And we just don’t see eye to eye.”

“In my next I’m taking a break from game-changing ventures” – Ayushmann Khurrana

It is Ayushmann’s first out-and-out entertainer in a long time. “All my recent films have tackled issues. This one is pure fun, and I had so much fun doing it. I was sharing screen space for the first time with Amitji. That in itself was enough incentive to be part of Gulabo Sitabo. On top of that, this is a film directed by my mentor Shoojitda (Shoojit Sircar). Even if he asked me to just stand in one frame for a few seconds I’d do it happily.”

Currently Ayushmann is on a break from shooting and Gulabo Sitabo would be his last release for at least a year. “But it’s not as if I am going to be invisible. There are ads to be shot, events to be attended, public appearances will continue. Besides, I am constantly reading scripts. And I’ve already said yes to one new project.”
