Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan focusses on same-sex relationship and Khurrana plays a gay man in it. Contrary to Bollywood stereotypes that has never seen a leading superstar attempt such roles, Ayushmann feels he had to do this film and do his bit for the cause of LGBTQ community in India.

Ayushmann says,

“I was born and brought up in a small city and growing up I did not have adequate knowledge, understanding on this. I have seen my perspective about the LGBTQ community evolve and I slowly recognised the societal stigma and stereotypes associated with the community at large and it pained me.”

The versatile actor reveals that he was a proud Indian when Article 377 was struck down.

“Human beings are born equals and should be treated as equals. Who they are, whom they love, what their choices are should never been questioned in a free country. But, sadly, that doesn’t really happen anywhere and evolution to becoming a better society is always a process, always a work in progress. I’m grateful that our nation has also evolved with time and striking down of Article 377 was a historic step towards fostering inclusivity. I was proud of my country when the judgement was passed.”

Ayushmann says he decided to back Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan because such films foster the spirit of inclusivity and individuality in society at large. He says,

“I had to back this important project and do my bit to raise more awareness around this sensitive issue. It is an honour that Anand L. Rai sir felt that through Hitesh Kewalya’s vision, I could be entrusted to play this important role on screen and take a very important message to as many families and parents in India. This is my attempt at celebrating the individuality of all Indians and championing inclusivity that truly defines us all as human beings.”

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar. It is written and directed by Hitesh Kewalya and produced by Aanand L. Rai and Bhushan Kumar under their respective banners Colour Yellow Productions and T-Series. The filming began on 10 September 2019 and ended on 16 December 2019 in Benares. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan will release on February 21, 2020.
