Ayushmann To Do Intimate Gay Scenes



After a vocal  trans-gender avatar in  Dream Girl it is time  for Ayushmaan  Khurrana to push the envelope even  further with his  next project Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhan where he  plays  a gay character who not only comes out  of the closet  but also wants to marry his partner,

 The  partner  in this  unabashed gay comedy will  be played  by internet  sensation Jitendra Kumar whose  skits The Viral Fever have the nation in their grip.

Sources say  the gay angle would not be dealt with in any apologetic  or  hesitant manner.

“Unlike Onir’s brave   My Brother  Nikhil where no intimacy was shown between the gay partner Sanjay Suri and Purab  Kohli, in Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhan there will be many intimate moments between  Ayushmann Khurrana and  Jitendra Kumar. This would be the  first  gay  love story  of  Indian cinema  where the central relationship  would not accentuate  the  gender of  the lovers,” says  a  source  close to  the  project.

Ayushmann is no stranger  to unconventional roles and  films, specially those that address sexual taboos. In his debut film Vicky Donor he played a sperm donor. In Shubh Mangal Savdhan Ayushman’s character   suffered from erectile disorder. In Badhaai Ho he dealt with his mother’s pregnancy and  in Dream Girl he was  a cross-dressing actor impersonating a woman phone-sex worker.

When asked what it would be  like  doing a kissing scene with his male co-star in Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhan Ayushmann had  opined  it would be no different to kissing a  female co-star.
