The actor simply refuses to conform to the norms of conventional filmmaking and likes to work in projects that are challenging and ‘unconventional’.
At the trailer launch of ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’, which is a satire on erectile dysfunction, Ayushmann was asked if he is sceptical about doing unconventional films like ‘Vicky Donor’, ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ and now ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’, the actor broke into a grin and said, “I will be skeptical if I choose conventional subjects. You have to find your niche.”
Bhumi, too, feels she is ‘lucky’ that films that are ‘high on content’ come her way. Talking about her choice of projects, the pretty actress said, “I have been lucky that are high on content and I naturally have an affinity towards quirky films and high (quality) content.”
Ayushmann also spoke about the seriousness of the ‘gent’s problem’ and said this film is an attempt to start a conversation in the country about this serious health hazard and steps one must take to overcome it. “ It (the film) does not stereotype people. It's a normal issue in our country and people deal with it. Some don't deal with it all; when people here about it they say go to Switzerland. Going to Switzerland or New Zealand is not going to solve the issue. You have to see to it. Go to a doctor, solve it.”
“‘Vicky Donor’ main itna kiya aur abhi nahin ho rahaan (I have done so much in ‘Vicky Donor’ and now its just not happening this time),” he playfully said, referring to his character Mudit’s sexual disorder and inability to perform in bed.
‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ has been directed by Tamil filmmaker R S Prasanna, who had made the original version of the film in Tamil called ‘Kalyana Samayal Saadham’, and is produced by producer-director Aanand L Rai.
The film is slated to release on September 1....
