Ayushmann Khurrana is still rumoured to be on the lookout for his leading male for the sequel to ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ (2017) – ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’, which will be based on a homosexual love story.
CineBlitz has reported that Khurrana has approached ‘Mirzapur’ actor Divyendu Sharma for the role, however no official confirmation has been given of the news, with further speculation suggesting Sharma may opt out.
Originally the role was offered to Rajkummar Rao, but sources say that the ‘Stree’ (2018) actor turned this down due to Khurrana having a better role in the film.
The ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ team are apparently also looking for a female lead, though no further details have been given on this either.
Directed by Aanand L Rai, the film is slated to release on Valentines day 2020.
