Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a sequel to Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. This sequel is a gay love story and Ayushmann will be one of the leads. Helmed by Hitesh Kewalya, the flick is set to go on floors by the end of August this year. And likely to hit the silver screen in 2020.
Talking about one of the most loved on-screen jodi of 2018, who will be sharing screen space once again with Ayushmann i.e. Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao. A source shared with Mumbai Mirror,
“Neena and Gajraj immediately connected with the script and were happy to come on board. They play a couple in this film too but will be seen in a completely different avatar from Badhaai Ho. Featuring another extended family and a light-hearted take on deeply divisive issues, the film will tackle the subject of homosexuality in a light-hearted manner.”
This is what the sequel’s producer has to say,
“With Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, we chose to explore a novel subject in an unusual and unexpected setting. And a story like this needed talents like Neena Ji and Gajraj Rao.”
Ayushmann too had said in the past that,
“Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a beautiful story told in the quintessential Aanand Rai style of filmmaking that will touch your hearts and leave a smile on your face. It is one of the most brilliant films that I have read in a long time and it handles the subject of homosexuality really sensitively. It is a pleasure to collaborate again with the master storyteller of our times. It is an out and out entertaining film that will also make you think and that’s the hallmark of good cinema.”
