Rai said, "With Zyada Saavdhan, we have a great story in hand and who better, but Ayushmann to play the lead since he brings a whole new level of expression to the table."

Further, he said that the success of the first film encouraged him to turn this into a franchise which handles "taboo subjects in the most light-hearted manner."

History

Khurrana's films usually deal with taboo love stories

Khurrana has made a space for himself as the only mainstream actor who picks movies with social messaging revolving around sex and relationships, such as Vicky Donor (2012), Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015), Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2017), Badhaai Ho (2018).

Earlier this year, Sonam Kapoor-starrer Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, which featured a lesbian romance, became Bollywood's first mainstream LGBTQ-themed movie.
