- "What's the fun if I make it vulgar?" said R S Prasanna
- The makers are expecting a U/A certificate for the film
- Shubh Mangal Saavdhan releases on September 1
Ayushmann stars opposite his Dum Laga Ke Haisha co-star Bhumi Pednekar. Shubh Mangal Saavdhan tracks the love story of Mudit (Ayushmann) and Sugandha (Bhumi) but with a twist. Mudit suffers from gent's problem which Sugandha, his fiancee is unaware of. Ayushmann's problem in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is just the opposite of Vicky Donor.
Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is a remake of Tamil film Kalyana Samayal Saadham (2013), also directed by R S Prasanna. He told PTI that filmmaker Aanand L Rai, who is the co-producers of Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, had offered to him to make the film in Hindi within 20 days after Kalyana Samayal Saadham hit the screens but he took time. "As soon as my movie released in Chennai, within 20 days I had an offer in hand to direct a Hindi film. When something happens so fast, you need to take a lot of time to ensure that you don't goof up that opportunity."
"It took them six months to change the setting of Kalyana Samayal Saadham from Chennai to Delhi-Uttar Pradesh backdrop for Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and come up with a new, organic script which still retained the core essence of the original," he told PTI.
