The Coronavirus-induced lockdown has led to closure of cinemas. Since last three months, not a single star-studded film has released. But finally, GULABO SITABO is all set to be streamed on a digital platform from today and this flick has been noticed thanks to the pairing of Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan. Moreover, it’s helmed by Shoojit Sircar, who has given memorable films like VICKY DONOR [2012] and PIKU [2015] with both the actors respectively.

The matter reaches the cops who tell them to take this dispute to civil court. At the police station, Gyanesh Shukla (Vijay Raaz) from the archaeology department overhears their commotion.
