Jitendra Singh To Play Ayushmann Khurrana’s Lover In ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’
Mumbai: Jitendra Kumar, who is known for popular web shows ‘The Viral Fever’ and ‘Kota Factory’, has been roped in to play Ayushmann Khurrana’s love interest in the upcoming film ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’.
According to reports, the makers had earlier approached Rajkummar Rao and Kartik Aaryan for the project. However, both the actors felt that the meaty part is already with Ayushmann, so they declined the film.
‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ is a sequel of RS Prasanna’s 2017 hit Shubh Mangal Saavdhan starring Ayushmann and Bhumi Pednekar. Produced by Aanand L Rai, the film’s story dealt with the subject of erectile dysfunction.
Interestingly, the sequel is based on homosexuality. Talking about the film, Ayushmann had earlier 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.”
Directed by Hitesh Kewalya, ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ is slated to release on February 14, 2020.
The film will clash with Imtiaz Ali’s next, which stars Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan.
