Meanwhile, the new season of Kaun Banega Crorepati is set to begin, and the promos of the show are already being shot with its host Big B. He will be shooting two of the show's promos in Lucknow. "Bachchan sir is going to be shooting in Lucknow for the next month or so and since it's a start-to-finish schedule, he can't go to Mumbai to shoot the promos of KBC. That's why the show producers decided to shoot two of them in Lucknow," informed Eiqbal Jaafri, the line producer in Lucknow.
Written by Sircar's frequent collaborator Juhi Chaturvedi of Vicky Donor, Piku and October fame, Gulabo Sitabo is produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar. Notably, it will bring Bachchan and Khurrana together on the big screen for the first time. The film is slated to release on April 24, 2020.
