On Monday, Amitabh Bachchan announced the official wrap of his upcoming film Gulabo Sitabo. The actor took to Twitter to share photos from, what looks like, the wrap up party as people in the photo can be seen dancing. He also mentioned that next up, his schedule is busy with shoot for television show Kaun Banega Crorepati.

“T 3241 - The wrap on 'Gulabo Sitabo' .. a non stop well planned schedule .. now onto the next .. KBC !” he wrote on Twitter.

On 26 July, Big B had said that he was experiencing withdrawal symptoms as the shooting for Gulabo Sitabo was about to be completed.

Amitabh took to Twitter to write: “Withdrawal symptoms setting in as the GS schedule nears completion. Happens all the time... and the next work schedule begins to take over.”

Gulabo Sitabo also stars Ayushmann Khurrana. It is slated to release on 24 April. It is helmed by Shoojit Sircar and written by Juhi Chaturvedi of Piku fame.

He also took to his blog to further elaborate on the experience and poke fun at himself.

He wrote, “Another chapter endeth .. and they that have worked and lived together for these almost 45 + days , bid farewell in the rejoice of the association .. it’s been a tradition now with this generation to applaud the last day of work .. it never was this before .. but it feels more like a relief from the artist, his tantrums his idiosyncrasies, his temperament his fluctuating moods, pet paroxysms demands and generally unwanted behaviour  .. all of which they have found in me , and now rejoice my departure ..

.. thank the Lord they say .. finally this old grumpy, with the flood inspector pyjamas and the telescopic glasses goes .. .. rid eventually of this horror !

He also called Shoojit Sircar a “visionary of cinema.”

He also called Shoojit Sircar a “visionary of cinema” while speaking to IANS, “A sincere thinking Director, taking charge of all the detailing on set, the background movements the camera the passings the actors and their acting by giving acting demos, all a rare quality and a rare maker and visionary of cinema."

"I wonder if we shall work again," he added.
