After seeing their sparkling chemistry in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, fans wanted to see Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar share screen space. Now, the two have collaborated for the second time in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. The film is a remake of Tamil comedy Kalyana Samayal Saadham.
Producer Aanand L Rai took to Twitter to announce the release date of the film that is September 1, 2017. He captioned the picture as, “Seems they’re almost there… coming to you on 1st September!#ShubhMangalSaavdhan1stSEP.”
Ayushmann Khurrana also tweeted, “#ShubhMangalSaavdhan – ‘stand up’ for love. Releasing 1st Sept 2017. @psbhumi @aanandlrai @rs_prasanna @cypplOfficial @ErosNow.”
Bhumi Pednekar wrote, “Making a Shubh entry into your Mangal lives on 1st Sep 2017.Be Saavdhan,we are #standingupforlove #ShubhMangalSaavdhan1stSEP @ayushmannk.”
In an interview, director RS Prasanna said, “I wouldn’t say it is a complete remake of KSS. It is an entirely new film with the same basic theme and soul. ‘Spiritual remake’ is the correct word for it. We will soon come out with the official announcement about the cast and the crew.”
He also feels that collaborating with filmmaker Aanand L Rai is an achievement. He added, “I figured that even if the film didn’t materialize, getting a chance to sit and discuss it with Aanand L Rai sir itself was a success. It was a great experience working with him.”
Are you excited to see Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan?
