On the anniversary of the film, the actor shared a video with a montage dedicated to 'Love is Love.' The actor can be heard expressing in the narration that he hopes to tell many more such stories.
"I have always considered myself merely a vehicle or a medium to tell stories that hopefully will affect positive social change. I was thrilled with how audiences reacted to the strong message about gender inclusivity that #ShubhMangalZyadaSaavdhan (SMZS) delivered, making it a unique success story. On the second anniversary of the film, I again want to highlight that what’s most important right now is a representation of the community in mainstream cinema."
On a closing note, he wrote,
“I think awareness among our countrymen has been created by films like Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui and now Badhaai Do. I believe we are moving in the right direction. SMZS and CKA will be remembered as baby steps towards a bigger impact.#2YearsOfShubhMangalZyadaSaavdhan”
Post Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Ayushmann was most recently seen in Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui with Vaani Kapoor. The Abhishek Kapoor directorial's central character was a trans-woman and it put the LGBTQ community under the spotlight. The film was about love and acceptance.
