The Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ (2017) is all set to get a sequel – which is a known fact. This time the film, titled ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan,’ will revolve around a gay love story and Khurrana will be playing one of the lead characters. The movie will be helmed by Hitesh Kewalya and is set to go on floors by the end of August this year.
Sharing the screen space once again with Khurrana will be none other than ‘Badhaai Ho’ (2018) couple Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao, reports DNA India. Talking about it, a source stated to 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.”
While producer Aanand L Rai went on 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.”
Khurrana had earlier spoken about the film stating, “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.”
‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ is likely to hit the screens in 2020.
