After the success of Shubh Mangal Savdhaan, Ayushmann Khurrana and producer Aanand L Rai will reunite for Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. We told you this morning that the second instalment in the franchise will centre on a gay love story. Khurrana will be seen playing a homosexual man in the film.
The latest development in the news is that Khurrana shared an interesting sneak peak of the film. The voiceover in the video introduces us to the love stories we all grew up reading about, listening and watching, such as those of Romeo and Juliet, Laila and Majnu, Mirza and Sahibaan and Raj and Simran. However, there were a lot of love stories that relegated to the sidelines; the unread, unheard, unsung and unseen love stories. But these stories continued to bloom in the background. He also says that after the success of the first instalment and the striking down of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code by the Supreme Court of India have resulted in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. In the video, homosexual love stories have been referred to as ‘100% natural’.
This film will be an interesting addition to mainstream films such as Kapoor & Sons and Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga that portrayed homosexuality in a rather sensitive manner. From the video, it is evident that the film will have a comic tone to it much like Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. We must say that we are really excited for this one.
Check out the video below and do mention your thoughts in the comment section:
The film will be directed by Hitesh Kewalya, who wrote the screenplay and dialogues for Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and produced by Eros Now and Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions. The rest of the casting is currently underway. The film will hit theatres on Valentine’s Day 2020.
