Well as all of us are eagerly waiting for Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar’s love story to hit the screens, a bad news for the makers arrived. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdaan wil not be screened in Dubai and the Middle East. The movies with a gay theme are automatically banned in the Middle Eastern countries.
A source from Dubai stated, “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 a gay content are banned in these parts.”
Although the producers of the movie offered that they will cut the smooch part that’s shown in the trailer between Ayushmann and Jitendra. But they were told that it was not only about the kissing scene but also the content.
Directed by Hitesh Kewalya, the movie also features Manurishi Chaddha, Sunita Rajwar and Pankhuri Awashty in key roles. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is scheduled to hit theatres on February 21 this year.
