Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan turns 1: Ayushmann Khurrana says ‘Taboo topics need to be constantly addressed’
Ayuhsmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar starrer Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan was released a year ago on this day. The film was helmed by Hitesh Kewalya and it is a sequel to the 2017 Ayuhsmann and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Shubh Mangal Saavdha. Today, as Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan marked 1 year, Ayushmann Khurrana took to his Instagram handle to share a heartfelt note to celebrate the same. In his post, the actor has emphasized
the importance of ‘taboo topics’ and stated that these topics need to be constantly addressed through cinemas because they can help alter the mindset of people.
The same-sex love story casts Ayushmann as a gay person. Now, while sharing a few stills featuring him from the film on Instagram, he wrote, “Taboo topics need to be constantly addressed through our cinema because it can really help alter the mindset of people. It takes a lot of time and effort to normalise taboo subjects and bring about constructive changes in society. I`m glad that we tried to contribute towards making the conversation about same-sex relationships in India mainstream through Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. #1YearOfShubhMangalZyadaSaavdhan.”

Apart from Ayushmann and Jitendra, the film also starred Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao in lead roles.
Recently, while speaking with the IANS, Ayushmann recalled how many people in the industry advised him not to sign the film. He said he was thrilled with the response towards this film because everyone told him that he is doing a very tricky film and that no one would accept this kind of cinema.
“Instead, I was humbled with appreciation. The success of this film is in how it was accepted as a commercial film and how it has hopefully done its job to pave a path for many other films on such subjects to be made,” the actor added.
