Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan banned in Dubai and UAE
Ayushmann Khurrana has been on a winning spree with his last three films in 2019 that went on to be blockbusters. The actor is gearing for his first release of the year with ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’. The movie has caught the attention of fans for its unique storyline. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a same-sex love story between Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar. But the movie has hit a roadblock before its big opening.
‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’, starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar, has been denied release in Dubai and UAE due to its homosexuality content.
As reported by a source to Bollywood Hungama, “Ayushmann’s same-sex story has been banned in Dubai and UAE. The makers even offered to snip the kiss between Ayushmann and Jitendra, but to no avail. We knew this was coming. Or, rather not coming. We really wanted to see what Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan has to say since it is the first Bollywood film that normalizes a gay relationship. Sadly, all films with gay content are banned in these parts.”
Directed by Hitesh Kewalya, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a love story between two men in small-town India. The film has Ayushmann and Jitendra battling the latter’s homophobic family to gain acceptance. The movie also features Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Maanvi Gagroo in key roles, has just opened in theatres. It is clashing with Bhanu Pratap Singh’s horror film Bhoot – Part One: The Haunted Ship, starring Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar.
