Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana's Gulabo Sitabo is the first Bollywood release to have an OTT premiere after the coronavirus outbreak. The film directed by Shoojit Sircar will release on Amazon Prime on June 12 and going by its trailer, it comes across as a hilarious ride with two annoying characters at the forefront. While Amitabh plays a landlord, Ayushmann is his tenant and the duo is always at loggerheads with each other. The movie's first song, Jootam Phenk further gives us an insight into their funny camaraderie and it's totally worth your time.
