When the trailer of Shubh Mangal Saavdhan came out, we fell out of our seats rolling with laughter. There is a terrific development on the same. The good news is that Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is coming soon. Yes, the film has been turned into a franchise. The 2017 film was a sleeper hit and is remembered for its deadly dialogues. Ayushmann Khurrana is featuring in the second film, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, the shoot of which will start from the last week of August. Aanand L Rai confirmed the news to Mumbai Mirror. It seems the film will be shot at a stretch and features an ensemble cast of extremely talented actors. The makers want to release it in early 2020.
The first film, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan was a remake of the Tamil blockbuster, Kalyana Samayal Saadham. RS Prasanna who made the original marked his Bollywood debut with the film. The writer of Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Hitesh Kewalya is directing the film. A source told Mumbai Mirror, "The first draft of the script has been locked. This time the makers have
decided to bring homosexuality as the main theme in a mainstream Hindi film." The producer himself confirmed the news. He said, "The Shubh Mangal Saavdhan franchise is our tribute to the churning that keeps our society alive. Every installment will deal with a topic that touches every person but no one wants to speak about it publicly. Like the first film, this one too will broach a taboo subject with great sensitivity and light humour. I anticipate a lot of conversations and cheer around the second film too."
The source further told the paper, that the social comedy will be set in a small town. "It revolves around how a conservative family comes to terms with the fact that their son is gay. The humour is situational," stated the source. It seems Ayushmann Khurrana will first wrap up Dinesh Vijan's Bala, which is being directed by Amar Kaushik of Stree fame. It has him as a young man facing the grave problem of premature battling. The film also has Bhumi Pednekar, Yami Gautam, Saurabh Shukla, Javed Jaffrey and Seema Pahwa.
