      Ayushmann Khurrana Says He Is Glad Amitabh Bachchan Wore ‘Deceitful’ Make-up In Gulabo Sitabo


      The Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan starrer, Gulabo Sitabo, released on the digital platform yesterday, on June 12, 2020. The two star actors have been praised for their performances and on-screen camaraderie.

      Ayushmann, who is a huge fan Big B, opened up on working with the latter. He said that he was glad that Amitabh was wearing 'deceitful' makeup, and was not himself on the set as he would've otherwise found it hard to be professional around him.

      Gulabo Sitabo: Ayushmann Is Glad Big B Didnt Play Himself

      Speaking to Mid-Day in an interview, Ayushmann said, "It's hard to be a professional actor around your screen idol. I am glad he wasn't playing himself - the alpha male with a [deep] baritone. He was playing a character, wearing deceitful make-up. So, there wasn't a hint of the legend on set. But after pack-up every day, I would pinch myself to believe that I was, in fact, sharing screen space with him."

      He added, "After Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) released, Mr. Bachchan sent me a personalised note, appreciating the nuances of my performance. When I won the National Award for Andhadhun (2018), he sent a beautiful message."

      Gulabo Sitabo has opened to rave reviews by critics. The film is about a comical relationship between a tenant and his landlord, and has been directed by Shoojit Sircar.

      Ayushmann, who made his debut with a Shoojit Sircar film, Vicky Donor, had expressed his gratitude towards the director in one of his Instagram posts. He had written how, it was with Shoojit's guidance, that he has reached this position in his career.

      जब भी हमारे देश में कोई नौजवान अभिनय के क्षेत्र में कदम रखना चाहता है तो उसका ध्येय होता है अमिताभ बच्चन। मेरी आख़िरी फ़िल्म में एक dialogue था कि बच्चन बनते नहीं है, बच्चन तो बस होते हैं। जब मैंने बचपन में चंडीगढ़ के नीलम सिनमा में “हम” देखी थी और बढ़े से बच्चन को बढ़े से पर्दे पर देखा था तो शरीर में ऐसी ऊर्जा उत्पन्न हुई जिसने मुझे अभिनेता बनने पर मजबूर कर दिया। मेरा पहला tv शूट मुकेश मिल्ज़ में हुआ था और यही वो जगह थी जहां जुम्मा चुम्मा दे दे शूट हुआ था। उस दिन मुझे I have arrived वाली feeling आ गयी थी। अगर तब यह हाल था तो आज आप सोच सकते होंगे मैं किस अनुभूति से गुज़र रहा होऊँगा। गुलाबो सिताबो में मेरे सामने बतौर ‘सह’ कलाकार यह हस्ती खड़ी थी और किरदारों की प्रवृति ऐसी थी की हमें एक दूसरे को बहुत ‘सहना’ पड़ा। वैसे असल में मेरी क्या मजाल की मैं उनके सामने कुछ बोल पाऊँ। इस विसमयकारी अनुभव के लिए मैं शूजित दा का धन्यवाद करना चाहूँगा की उन्होंने मुझे अमिताभ बच्चन जैसे महानायक के साथ एक फ़्रेम में दिखाया है। दादा आप मेरे गुरू हैं, आपका हाथ थाम कर यहाँ तक पहुँचा हूँ। “सौ जन्म क़ुर्बान यह जन्म पाने के लिए, ज़िंदगी ने दिए मौक़े हज़ार हुनर दिखाने के लिए।” -आयुष्मान 🙏🏻 Catch #GiboSiboOnPrime today!
