Mumbai, April, 2020: Amazon Prime Video today announced the digital premiere of much-awaited 2020 romantic dramedy Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. The movie that has broken all conventions of love, romance and acceptance with its heartfelt story is all set to premiere on the service on April 18. Starring superstar Ayushmann Khurrana with Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta and Jitendra Kumar, the film brings same-sex romance to mainstream cinema with the protagonists trying to convince their parents to accept their relationship. Prime members globally can watch this year’s blockbuster shortly after its theatrical release.
Commenting on the film, Ayushmann Khurrana said, “This movie is very close to my heart. It has been a while since same-sex love was decriminalized; however, I believe we have a long way to go before the society accepts it. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a lighter take on the reality of homophobia that exists in India and also an attempt to bring such unconventional stories to the fore. Art and cinema, in my opinion, can do a lot to change mindsets. With Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, that was our intent, to bring the conversation on same-sex love to all of India. I am happy to have been a part of it and excited for the film to digitally premiere on Amazon Prime Video where it will reach a global audience.”
Presenting the life of two men who are in love with each other, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan depicts their struggle to convince their families to accept the relationship. But things are never as easy as they seem and one of the boys’ family decides to get him married to a girl. Will their unconventional love prevail?
