Yesterday, the trailer of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan was released online which went on to receive an overwhelming response on social media. Starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar as a small town homosexual couple, the film revolves around the difficulties they face as they latter’s parents refuse to accept their child’s sexual preference.
One thing that people always had an issue with was the portrayal of gay men in Bollywood which often would come off as caricaturist. However, Ayushmann seems to have got his part right again with the LGBT community happy that they finally get some proper representation from a main stream Bollywood star.
Have a look at what they had to say about the ace actor.

#ShubhMangalZyadaSaavdhan is like a call to directors, storytellers who wants to tell stories with grey, layered characters, never seen before and no one else even remotely has the courage to do, bring it to @ayushmannk & he’ll not just do it but nail it. He’s an era in B’wood!!
