Watch: Gulabo Sitabo's first song 'Jootam Phenk' is an ode to Amitabh Bachchan's and Ayushmann Khurrana's unusual and quirky relationship


After much wait, the makers of Amitabh Bachchan's and Ayushmann Khurrana's Gulabo Sitabo unveiled the trailer on social media platforms on May 22. The film which will be the first theatrical project to get an OTT opening amid the ongoing nationwide lockdown is indeed much anticipated. Now, as this Shoojit Sircar directorial will stream on Amazon Prime Video from June 12, the makers released the first song from the film today. Titled Jootam Phenk, the song gives a glimpse into the hilarious and fun banter between Mr. Bachchan's and Ayushmann's characters.

Jootam Phenk revolves around an old landlord named Mirza and his young tenant Baankey. The two can't see eye to eye and keep bickering over petty issues. A situational track, this quirky number sets the tone for the film right. Jootam Phenk has been sung by Piyush Mishra, written by Puneet Sharma and composed by Abhishek Arora.
