Actor Amitabh Bachchan's look in his upcoming film 'Gulabo Sitabo' required a lot of hard work with the prosthetics. Filmmaker Shoojit Sircas has talked in detail about the amount of work that went into the character's look for the upcoming film starring Ayushmann Khurrana. A report quoted the director as saying, "The shoot was planned for summer and heavy prosthetics tend to get uncomfortable for an actor, especially for facial skin. It took two hours to create the look every day and getting it off was also tedious. But Bachchan was always enthusiastic and believed in our vision."

The actor wrote about the use of prosthetics on his blog. He wrote, "Its been an exhausting day .. the use of prosthetics have been tiresome and they sap all you efforts away .. but then this is what we aimed for .. hesitant to disclose the look .. methinks it shall be with the print media soon .. till then .. my abbreviated resolve."

Meanwhile, Sircar told the media, "Juhi (Chaturvedi, writer) and I worked on this script for some time. Ronnie (Lahiri, who produces the film with Sheel Kumar), Juhi and I felt Bachchan and Ayushmann would be ideal. Bachchan was like a curious child, while Ayush was in awe of him, like everyone else in the beginning."

'Gulaabo Sitabo' is set for release on April 24 next year. It refers to legendary pair of puppet sisters, part of Uttar Pradesh's folklore. The film is apparently a take on these two characters.
