  1. "Society has attached pride of a man on a genital organ," she said
  2. Sexual problems should be discussed without being judgemental: Bhumi
  3. Bhumi's Shubh Mangal Saavdhan released today
Actress Bhumi Pednekar, who plays stars opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, a film which deals with 'gent's problem,' says she 'doesn't judge a man's masculinity on how good he's in bed,' reports news agency IANS. "Well, as a girl, I do not judge a man based on how good he is in bed because that performance has nothing to do with how good a human being he is. It is the society that has attached pride, ego, and stamina of a man on a genital organ... which is so stupid and pointless," Bhumi, 28, said. Shubh Mangal Saavdhan hit the theatres today. In the film, Ayushmann suffers from 'gent's problem' but is unable to tell it to his fiancee, played by Bhumi, or his family members.

"From the beginning, a boy is told not to cry, not to be vulnerable... They are taught that mard ko dard nahi hota (a man does not feel pain). So when they grow up, somewhere in the back of their mind, they start behaving as if their heart is built of stone," Bhumi told IANS, adding that the society should now be progressive enough to talk about sexual problems without being 'judgemental.'

Of Shubh Mangal Saavdhan's subject, Bhumi said that the film will help people 'get rid of various such taboos.' "We are not saying that love is enough for a happy marriage, sex is also an important part of it. But when one of your partners is suffering from any sex-related problem, both should be open to talking and resolving the issue without making it a taboo, without hesitation. And supporting each other is possible only if they are bonded over love," she told IANS.

Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is directed by R S Prasanna and produced by Aanand L Rai. It is a remake of 2013 Tamil comedy Kalyana Samayal Sadham. Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is Ayushmann and Bhumi's second film together after Dum Laga Ke Haisha, her debut. Bhumi's last release, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, which deals with the issues of open defecation and sanitation in India, released last month.
