Media reports hint that Rajkummar Rao could be joining his ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ co-star Ayushmann Khurrana in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan.
A media report quotes a source saying:
“The idea is to bring out into the open bodily issues that no one discussed.
Which is not to say that Shubh Mangal Saavdhan sequel will go down the same path as the first instalment with Ayushmann again.
But there will definitely be a flaw in the protagonist to deal with,” it quoted a source as saying.
Aanand L. Rai’s Shubh Mangal Saavdhan featured Ayushmann and Bhumi Pednekar in lead role and addressed the subject of erectile dysfunction with humour.
The second instalment, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, will now talk about homosexual relationships.
The upcoming film will be directed by Hitesh Kewalya.
“The film is a beautiful story told in the quintessential Aanand L. Rai style of filmmaking that will touch your hearts and leave a smile on your face.
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.
Being an out and out entertaining film, it will also make you think and that’s the hallmark of good cinema,” Ayushmann stated after the film was announced.
As per media reports, the plot revolves around how a conservative family comes to terms with the fact that their son is gay. It is expected to go on the floors in the last week of August.
According to a recent media report, rumours have it that TV actress Pankhuri Awasthy could be making her Bollywood debut in this movie though final confirmations are expected.
