One of the most successful on-screen pairings in recent times is of Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar. The duo first starred together in the 2015 hit 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha'. And more than two years later delivered another big hit, 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan'. Last year, they impressed the audience with 'Bala' which did amazingly well at the box-office.

And now, yet again Bhumi Pednekar is all set to share screen space with Ayushmann in 'Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan'. In the second instalment, the actress, will be making a guest appearance in the film based on same-sex marriages. However, the role for Bhumi will be very different from what it was in the previous part. Producer Aanand L Rai confirming the news said, "Bhumi is a part of Shubh Mangal Saavdhan family and we couldn’t imagine making Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan without her. She has a special appearance in the narrative and we are extremely happy to have her on board." Reportedly Bhumi shot for her part over a two-day schedule in Varanasi in November.

Dealing with the subject of homosexuality and the taboo surrounding it, the film is helmed by Hitesh Kewalya, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Jitendra Kumar, Manurishi Chaddha, Sunita Rajwar, Maanvi Gagroo, Pankhuri Awasthy, and Neeraj Singh. The film also stars Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta who played the role of Ayushmann Khurrana's parents in the 2018 release 'Badhaai Ho.' 'Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan' is slated to release on February 21, 2020.
