New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: The Mirza-Baankey duo of film ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ got a new lease of virtual fame, as Big-B flaunted a mask featuring the two leads from his recent Shoojit Sircar film – himself as Mirza and Ayushmann Khurrana as Baankey – and celebrated the fact that he could finally reveal the Hindi translation of mask.

The 77-year-old actor took to Instagram on Tuesday night and celebrated a new finding of the necessary accessory of our COVID-infested times. The ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ actor captioned a monochromatic picture of himself flaunting a mask featuring Mirza and Baankey duo from ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ and captioned it as, "Mil gaya! Mil gaya! Mil gaya! Bohot parishram ke baad, mask ka anuvaad mil gaya. (Found it! Found it! Found it! After a lot of effort, I found the Hindi translation for a mask). nasikamukhsanrakshak keetaanurodhak vayuchanak vastrdoriyuktpattika."

Amitabh Bachchan, as part of the promotion of his film ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ kicked off a tongue twister challenge, in which many film stars participated and displayed their tongue-twisting abilities to the rest of the world. Big-B nominated Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Virat Kohli, Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar to say, "Gulabo ki khatar-patar se titar-bitar sitabo, sitabo ke agar-magar se uthal-puthal gulabo," 5 times (meaning, Gulabo’s verbal bustle smashes Sitabo. And Sitabo’s this and that puts Gulabo in chaos).

"Bas 5 baar bolna hai yeh tongue twister.. Koshish karenge aap log .. Karenge toh humari chandi ho jayegi.. Sivaye ek ke,” Bachchan had added (You just have to speak it five times. You people should try.. If you do that then we’ll furnish the silver…except for on time).

Penned by writer Juhi Chaturvedi and directed by Shoojit Sircar, ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ released on Amazon Prime on 11th May and got mixed reviews from the fans and critics alike. Jagran English, in its review of the film, had noted, “The audience is left high and dry at multiple moments in the second half, and a sad-emotional end to Mirza’s character makes it workable, but not excellent.”
