This week came with an interesting announcement. Aanand L Rai’s production house, Colour Yellow Productions, announced a sequel to its 2017 hit Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar. Now the makers are giving the audience Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. While the first film dealt with the issue of erectile dysfunction, the sequel will tackle homosexuality. Khurrana will be the lead actor in the film.
Since the film does not call for a female lead, there was talk that Khurrana’s character’s gay partner would be played by Divyendu Sharma of Pyaar Ka Punchnama fame. But when we contacted Sharma, he said, “I am not in this film. I met the makers but for another project.”
With Sharma out of the reckoning, we wonder who will take up this challenging role.
