There should be no reservations to bring to the fore stories that are compelling: Aanand L Rai

Vastavam web: Filmmaker Aanand L Rai, whose next production venture “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan” deals with erectile dysfunction, says there should be no reservations to bring to the fore stories that are compelling.”‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ is a very challenging and entertaining film for me, it’s a gutsy film. It touches a subject that you can’t talk in open, but I am showing it in a way that people can talk about it openly,” Rai told.”There should be no hesitation (to present such stories) as that is how we will grow and progress. When I see Shoojit Sircar making ‘Piku’ or ‘Vicky Donor’, I like it. I feel we should enjoy such cinema more. It should be treated as a family film, treat it like a Sooraj Barjatya film.”
“As a student of cinema and (a) part of this film industry, I take the responsibility to make certain kind of films in a certain way, whether as a director or producer. It is high time we talk about things,” he says.In “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan”, Bhumi Pednekar plays Sugandha, who is a simple girl with middle class values, while Ayushmann Khurrana plays Mudit, a marketing professional.”I am thankful for the success that I have achieved in the industry due to the audience. I come from a middle class family, but I will not use small town as a cliched in films, I will use it in a progressive way and will only enhance it in a certain way,” Rai says.
“Today middle class people have also grown, what we used to call conservative have grown and they don’t shy away from talking about things.” Directed by R S Prasanna, the film is the remake of his own 2013 Tamil directorial venture titled “Kalyana Samayal Saadham”.
