It’s reunion time for Badhaai Ho team! Ayushmann Khurrana’s on-screen parents from Badhai Ho, Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao have been finalized to play his parents’ role in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
The two veteran actors have left an indelible mark on the audience with their exceptional acting in Badhaai Ho which was not your usual-love-drama-family movie.
While Badhaai Ho was all about parenting an unexpected child, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is about homosexuality with light-hearted fun.
Pretty much like Badhaai Ho, SMZS will have parents play pivotal roles in the life of their homosexual son. The filmmaker, Anand L Rai couldn’t think of anyone but Neena Ji and Gajraj Ji to play such sensitive yet funny roles.
Besides, the Jodi became a household name after Badhaai Ho in which their comic timing and chemistry was widely loved.
In a statement released earlier, Ayushmann said, “It 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. It is an out and out entertaining film that will also make you think and that’s the hallmark of good cinema.”
The first edition of the franchise, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan dealt with the issue of erectile dysfunction, the sequel will showcase a gay love story breeding in a small town of India.
Directed by Hitesh Kewalya, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is being produced by Aanand L Rai. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan will hit the theatres on 14 February 2020.
