Ayushmann Khurrana’s upcoming outing Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan went on floors today. Indian film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the news on his Twitter handle. He also revealed the new release date of the film, alongside a picture of the movie’s clapperboard with a colourful and vibrant Ganesha idol in the backdrop.

The film will deal with the subject of homosexuality and the taboo surrounding it. It also stars Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao. The two had earlier shared screen space with Ayushmann in the 2018 hit movie Badhaai Ho. The duo, who played the role of the actor’s parents in Badhaai Ho, earned rave reviews for their performance in the film, which won several awards and honours last year.


The makers of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan had released an animated teaser of the film on May 9, which is sure to grab your attention thanks to its creativity and how well it delves into the subject of homosexuality and the taboo surrounding it.

The 50-second-long teaser perfectly captures the evolution of love stories in India and how people are familiar with heterosexual relationships like Romeo-Juliet, Laila- Majnu, Mirza-Sahiba, Raj-Simran. A few moments into the teaser, we get to see love stories of gay couples which existed in the society but were never known or talked about.

The subject of homosexual relationships was also handled this year in Sonam Kapoor starrer Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. The audience now has grown receptive and open-minded to the idea of same-sex relationships on screen as more films are exploring the subject.

Directed by Hitesh Kewalya, the upcoming film is a sequel of 2017 blockbuster Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. The much-awaited film is being produced by Bhushan Kumar and Aanand L Rai, who also bankrolled the prequel.

Shubh Mangal Saavdhan had received an overwhelming response from the audiences and critics alike for the way it dealt with a subject of erectile dysfunction. The film, helmed by RS Prasanna, released on September 1, 2017, and also starred Bhumi Pednekar.

The upcoming film, which was earlier slated to release on Valentine Day 2020, will not hit the big screens on March 13, next year, averting a clash with Imtiaz Ali’s next directorial featuring Kartik Aaryan, Sara Ali Khan and Randeep Hooda.

Apart from this movie, Ayushmann will also be seen in Bala alongside Yami Gautam and Bhumi Pednekar and in Dream Girl opposite Nushrat Bharucha.
