Rajkummar Rao, Gulshan Devaiah and Dulquer Salmaan's upcoming series Guns & Gulaabs has everything that one witnessed in the 1990s. The over two minute long trailer showcased pop culture references, guns and goons, retro references. The background score by Usha Uthup’s song 'Rambha Ho' from the 1981 film Armaan is quite interesting.
Talking about his character Pana Tipu, Rao said, "I think the credit goes to Raj and DK. They bring everything different. What they think no one can think. When I read about the character, I was like should I love him or be scared of him. That fascinated me. He means business."
On his digital debut, Salmaan added, "What I loved about my career is that I’ve never made any grand plans. So getting a call from Raj and DK is a validation for me. Loved the world that has been created (by them). For me, it has been a learning experience. It was a no brainier to be a part of it."
Devaiah who dons the 90s look which is said to be inspired from Sanjay Dutt’s 90s look said, "Aapki hasi Bhi chootegi, aansu bhi niklenge and khoon bhi bahega!"
The cast also includes Adarsh Gourav, T.J. Bhanu and Satish Kaushik. Guns & Gulaabs is directed by Raj and DK who also helmed Manoj Bajpayee’s streaming hit The Family Man. The series will be available to stream on Netflix from August 18 onwards.
