Keeping up with the backdrop of the film, the lead stars of Rohan Sippy's new film Nautanki Saala -- Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunal Roy Kapur -- put up a theatrical performance to mark the film's first look launch.

Held at Chitrakoot grounds in Andheri, a western Mumbai suburb, the event saw Ayushmann and Kunal dress up like nautankiwalas or folk drama artistes.

Kapur climbed up to the top, as an inebriated Veeru, while Ayushmann tried to placate him from the ground.

The film borrows its title Nautanki Saala from Amitabh Bachchan's memorable remark about his dramatic buddy at the end of suicide sequence.
