In his recent conversation with Zoom Digital, director Shoojit Sircar said, “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.”

‘Gulabo-Sitabo’ is the second collaboration of the Director-actor Duo. Ayushmann made his debut with ‘Vicky Donor’ which was directed by Shoojit Sircar. Shoojit Sircar is currently working on Vicky Kaushal starrer, ‘Udham Singh’ while Ayushmann Khurrana was previously seen in ‘Subh Mangal Zyda Saavdhan’
