“I am making a gay love story as a responsible filmmaker”, says Aanand L Rai about Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

Ayushmann Khurrana is currently shooting a gay love story Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan in Varanasi. And accompanying him is his producer Aanand L Rai who is not directing the film. Speaking from Varanasi, Aanand says, “I am a here as a responsible producer. We are making a film that we hope would bring a taboo subject out of the closet. I need to make sure we get it right. I have always been a responsible filmmaker. I am stationed in Varanasi along with the rest of the crew of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan.”

“I am making a gay love story as a responsible filmmaker”, says Aanand L Rai about Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

Varanasi is a favourite city to shoot films for Aanand. He earlier shot Raanjhanaa in the Holy City. This time considering the sensitivity of the subject (homosexuality), Aanand is maintaining a tight vigil over the proceedings. “The entire cast and crew have been asked to be discreet. No one is allowed to discuss the film on the public domain in Varanasi. They maintain they are shooting a love story,” says a source close to the project.

This is true. Like Luca Guadagnini’s Call Me By Your Name, Chirantan Das’ Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan will treat the same-sex love story like any heterosexual love story. “The idea is to forget the gender of the lovers and focus on their love,” says Aanand Rai who has produced remarkable films like Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Manmarziyan and Tumbbad.
