Coming back to Ayushmann’s emotional note, this Bala actor posted a note in the Hindi language on his Instagram, where he recalled his First awe moment of seeing the icon in the movie Hum on big screens and explained it as what motivated him to go for a career in acting.

Ayushmann noted that he got this “I have arrived” feeling when his 1st television shoot was in the same location where Bachchan’s hit audio single: ‘Jumma Chumma’ from Hum was shot. From a fanboy to acting together in the same movie now, Ayushmann is short of words when it comes to expressing how overwhelming it is for him.

From the director Shoojit Sircar, the quirky comedy: ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ shows him essaying the role of tenant Baankey, while the Sholay actor plays Mirza, the landlord. This movie revolves around the character Mirza taking the legal route to evict his tenant, Baankey, from his haveli. Both of them use every method up their sleeve to make life hell for each other.

Ayushmann concluded his note by thanking the director Shoojit for the wonderful opportunity and putting them both in a single frame.

Ayushman writes in Hindi

“जब भी हमारे देश में कोई नौजवान अभिनय के क्षेत्र में कदम रखना चाहता है तो उसका ध्येय होता है अमिताभ बच्चन। मेरी आख़िरी फ़िल्म में एक dialogue था कि बच्चन बनते नहीं है, बच्चन तो बस होते हैं। जब मैंने बचपन में चंडीगढ़ के नीलम सिनमा में  ‘हम’ देखी थी और बढ़े से बच्चन को बढ़े से पर्दे पर देखा था तो शरीर में ऐसी ऊर्जा उत्पन्न हुई जिसने मुझे अभिनेता बनने पर मजबूर कर दिया। मेरा पहला tv शूट मुकेश मिल्ज़ में हुआ था और यही वो जगह थी जहां जुम्मा चुम्मा दे दे शूट हुआ था। उस दिन मुझे I have arrived वाली feeling आ गयी थी। अगर तब यह हाल था तो आज आप सोच सकते होंगे मैं किस अनुभूति से गुज़र रहा होऊँगा। गुलाबो सिताबो में मेरे सामने बतौर ‘सह’ कलाकार यह हस्ती खड़ी थी और किरदारों की प्रवृति ऐसी थी की हमें एक दूसरे को बहुत ‘सहना’ पड़ा। वैसे असल में मेरी क्या मजाल की मैं उनके सामने कुछ बोल पाऊँ। इस विसमयकारी अनुभव के लिए मैं शूजित दा का धन्यवाद करना चाहूँगा की उन्होंने मुझे अमिताभ बच्चन जैसे महानायक के साथ एक फ़्रेम में दिखाया है। दादा आप मेरे गुरू हैं, आपका हाथ थाम कर यहाँ तक पहुँचा हूँ। “सौ जन्म क़ुर्बान यह जन्म पाने के लिए, ज़िंदगी ने दिए मौक़े हज़ार हुनर दिखाने के लिए।” – आयुष्मान  Catch #GiboSiboOnPrime today!”

Gulabo Sitabo was released this Friday on an online video streaming platform Amazon Prime Video. The quirky comedy was at the beginning set to hit screens on April 17, 2020, but could not see the light of day due to the shuttering of cinema theatres due to coronavirus lockdown that is still in continuance in one way or another.
