Hitesh Kewalya's upcoming family entertainer Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan is one of the most anticipated films of the new year for the interesting plot that deals with the social taboo on homosexuality. Actors Ayushmann Khurrana and Kota Factory fame Jitendra Kumar have left no stone unturned in their portrayal as lovers in the sneak peek shown through the trailer that released earlier last month. Their onscreen chemistry has been lauded by the viewers through the comments on social media updates.

Jitendra Kumar has revealed that the shoot of the film wasn't his first interaction with the Vicky Donor actor and recalled the days when Ayushmann Khurrana had visited IIT Kharagpur to cover an ongoing fest in 2009. The actor had won the second season of reality television show MTV Roadies in 2004 and as fans of the show, Jitendra and his friends had met him and clicked photographs with him.
