Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan are gearing up for the first-ever film of theirs that will release online. The early reviews are out and both the actors are being lauded for their performances and their on-screen chemistry. This is Ayushmann’s first collaboration with Shoojit Sircar and turns out Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh had an important role to play for him to be cast in this movie.

Director Shoojit Sircar revealed in a recent interview with Zoom TV that he had narrated the idea of the film to Ayushmann at Ranveer and Deepika’s wedding reception. Shoojit said that while Ayushmann was the first choice for the film, they debated a lot before that. They casted Sr.Bachchan first and then later casted Ayushmann. But the director said it was at the DeepVeer reception that he first bounced off the idea with Ayushmann and ever since then the actor was excited and agreed to do it.

How cool is that? We love that #DeepVeer unknowingly became the reason why Ayushmann was cast in the film. Gulabo Sitabo is currently streaming on Amazon Prime and is scripted by Juhi Chaturvedi.
