2017 film Shubh Mangal Saavdhan featuring Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Padnekar in the lead roles, was a runaway success at the box office. Now, a spinoff film for it is being made, which is Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhaan. This film deals with the sexual tensions between a homosexual couple.
Even though Bhumi's role is not there in this new film's script, producer Aanand L Rai included a special role for her and the actress shot her part in Varanasi in November last year. Aanand said that Bhumi is a part of Shubh Mangal family and thus, he added a special role for her in the movie. This will be the fourth film of the actress with Ayushmann, after Dum Lagake Haisha, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and Bala.
Bhumi says that she is good friends with Ayushmann and always feels comfortable acting with him. She also added that she would be a part of Shubh Mangal franchise after working with Aanand L Rai, for the first part. She says that their sensibilities match and she always looks up to him. She also hoped that Aanand makes another film in the franchise so that she and Ayushmann can complete a hat-trick. Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan will hit the screens on February 21.
