Shubh Mangal Saavdhan Ayushmann and Bhumi

After impressing us with their chemistry in ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar will be seen together in Aanand L Rai’s production venture titled ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’. It is a remake of Tamil film ‘Kalyana Samayal Saadham’ and will deal with the issue of erectile dysfunction.

Talking about the film, Ayushmann told a leading daily, “Let’s not call it a remake. It is the rebirth of the same story but the milieu and humour is different. It’s amended to suit Bollywood.”

Bhumi added, “There is no fun in doing a run-of-the-mill love story. If films have the ability to change orthodox mindsets, then why not encourage them. This is wacky. We play a couple deeply in love but there is a twist in the tale. Sex is still a taboo here but it’s changing. After all, this is the land of Kamasutra.”


Ayushmann further stated , “Moreover, I am glad to feature alongside Bhumi. My wife, Tahira Kashyap saw one of our pictures from a photoshoot and said, ‘It looks like you are hugging me and smiling.’ We are buddies and our chemistry is effortless.”

The movie will be directed by Prasanna who had also helmed the Tamil film.
