‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ is said to be about a couple who are all set for an arranged marriage and fall in love with each other. However, before a few days of marriage, the groom finds out that he suffers from erectile dysfunction. How the groom and the bridegroom manage the whole scenario is the story of the film.

Talking about the movie, Ayushmann had earlier said, “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. Moreover, I am glad to feature alongside Bhumi. My wife 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.”

Bhumi added, “There is no fun in doing a run-of-the-mill love story. If films have the ability to change orthodox mindsets, they why not encourage them. This is wacky. We play a couple who are 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.”

Rai, who is producing the movie, had stated, “‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ is a funny and layered story. These are the kind of stories I’ve identified with, right from the time I made ‘Tanu Weds Manu’. It is a simple narrative with an interesting bend and the reason I cast Ayushmann and Bhumi is that they fit the bill perfectly for this part. They are the sort of actors I could be friends with even if they didn’t belong to the fraternity. They are simple and humble.”

The movie is slated to release on September 1, 2017.
