Filmmaker RS Prasanna’s latest film on erectile dysfunction – Shubh Mangal Saavdhan has done tremendously well at the box-office. The film that starred Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar was quite much appreciated by the fans and the critics.
The entire team of the Shubh Mangal Saavdhan even celebrated film’s success a day before (embed link) where we hear film’s director RS Prasanna discussed an idea about film’s producer Aanand L Rai regarding a sequel to their film.
The director told, “We already had a story but we were waiting for the audience’s reaction if they wanted to listen to the next story,” He also shared, “The feedback we got was positive. So a sequel will definitely happen, but we don’t know when exactly it is going to happen. When I was making the Tamil version then I had thought of an idea for the sequel. I think It will be a lot of fun, but it is only an idea as of now. There is no script, so it will take time.”
Meanwhile, Ayushmann who was also present at the success bash commented, “But the problem is, what will be the ‘problem’ of part two since it already got solved in the first one… We are looking for a plot line. It is a quirky plot and we want to explore it more.”
Earlier during Shubh Mangal Saavdhan promotions, Ayushmann spoke about if portraying such roles challenges him in any which way. To this, he told, “Well, that’s the message we are trying to convey through this film. My character Mudit is macho. SMS (Shubh Mangal Saavdhan) celebrates the alpha male of our country, who is suffering from performance anxiety. He, along with his partner, is trying to fight the problem. For the couple, it is them versus the family. The film draws attention to the fact that manhood is not just about ‘getting it up’, but standing up for various issues.”
Nevertheless, hearing the good news of the sequel, we are totally looking forward to see Ayushmann and Bhumi together again.
