Ayushmann Khurrana has carved a niche for himself with his choice of cinema and even though his last release, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, was a dud at the box office, fans have been eagerly waiting for his next release.

Recently, Amazon Prime Video acquired the rights of Shoojit Sircar directorial Gulabo Sitabo and the digital release date of the movie has been announced by the video streaming giant. “Gulabo Sitabo is one of the most anticipated films of the year. We are happy to exclusively premiere Gulabo Sitabo on Prime Video.
