Ayushmann Khurrana, in a recent conversation with Mumbai Mirror spoke up about the relevance of his upcoming film Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan in current times. The actor revealed the timing of doing a film based on the LGBTQ love story is correct as Supreme Court has legalized same-sex relationships and that he believes country is ready for a film based on the same subject. With this, Ayushmann also shared that he is happy to create a space for himself in terms of the films he does.
Ayushmann said, “The timing couldn’t be more perfect. I believe that India is ready for that character and that kind of cinema. The Supreme Court has legalised same-sex relationships and this is the right time for a love story on the LGBTQ community. Everyone aspires to create a certain space for themselves, and this is mine. It started with Vicky Donor and I am proud to own this space.”
Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan will star Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao, Pankhuri Awasthy, Jitendra Kumar. The film also has a special appearance of Bhumi Pednekar. The team is happy to have her on board as producer Bhushan Kumar recently said,“We are delighted to have Bhumi join the cast as a special appearance in the film. Bhumi’s association is one that adds value to the storyline, she is an amazing actor and I am glad she is part of our film.”
The film has been shot in Varanasi and is directed by Hitesh Kewalya. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is dubbed as a family entertainer and will explore emotions attached to love, relationships, and homosexuality. It is slated to release on February 21, 2020.
