After the success of Aanand L. Rai’s Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, which addressed the subject of erectile dysfunction with humour, now the makers announce the second part of the film.
Titled Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, the film will tackle the subject of homosexuality and will feature Ayushmann in the lead role.
Ayushmann Khurrana confirmed to star in a gay love story
Talking about being a part of this film, Ayushmann told IANS, “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.”
Meanwhile Aanand L Rai expressed how the success of Shubh Mangal Savdhaan encouraged them to address more subjects which are considered to be a taboo in the society and turn this into a franchise. He also added that there was no one better than Ayushmann for the role, “With …Zyada Saavdhan, we have a great story in hand and who better, but Ayushmann to play the lead since he brings a whole new level of expression to the table. Hope audiences enjoy it as much as the first film.”
The film will be directed by Hitesh Kewalya and produced by Aanand L Rai. The rest of the cast is yet to be decided.
