Badhaai Ho actors Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta are all set to once again team up with Ayushmann Khurrana in his upcoming film Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, a sequel to 2018 hit film Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
“With Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, we chose to explore a novel subject in an unusually unexpected setting. A unique story like this needed talents like Neenaji & Gajraj Rao and I am so happy to have them onboard,” producer Aanand L Rai said.
In Badhaai Ho, Gajraj and Neena played Ayushmann Khurrana’s parents.
While Shubh Mangal Saavdhan dealt with the concept of erectile dysfunction, the sequel will speak of the taboo around same-sex love.
“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,” Ayushmann Khurrana said in a statement earlier.
Directed by Hitesh Kewalya, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is being produced by Aanand L Rai.
