Producer Aanand L Rai is happy to bring back the blockbuster couple. Sharing his excitement, the ace director said, “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’m so happy to have them onboard.”
