The 2017 hit Shubh Mangal Saavdhan received good reviews from fans and critics for dwelling on a quirky and different topic. This time again Anand L. Rai has chosen a rarely touched topic to entice the viewers to the theaters. It is said that the first draft of the script is already locked up and the actor will start shooting for the film by the end of August. The film will be shot in a start-to-finish schedule with the entire ensemble cast and the makers are targeting an early 2020 release.
While talking about Shubh Mangal 2, Ayushmann, in a statement, 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.” He further added, “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.”
