Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan box office prediction: Ayushmann Khurrana has another winner
Ayushmann Khurrana, with his unconventional choice of films, has become one of the most bankable actors of Bollywood. After scoring seven back-to-back hits, he might just add another in the list this Friday with the release of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. The Hitesh Kewalya directorial, which revolves around homosexuality, has actor Jitendra Kumar playing Khurrana’s love interest.
“Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a bigger film with a wider target audience. With its comic element, it is targeting the youth and families. Also, the story is set in interior India, thereby making it widely acceptable. Ayushmann is on a roll, and whatever he touches is turning into gold. So, I am pretty confident that this time too he will have another winner in his hands,” film trade analyst Girish Johar told
Predicting the film’s opening day box office collection, he added, “The Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar starrer is a quirky take on how gay love is accepted.
The beauty of the subject is, they have set it in the hinterland. Earlier the concept of same-sex love was an urban trend in the country, but Shubh Mangal shows how people of smaller towns are also accepting this social change. Ayushmann has got the formula of taking a social taboo and dealing with it in a quirky way right.”
Girish Johar pegged the first-day collection of Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan at Rs 8-9 crores. Apart from Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar, the film also stars Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Maanvi Gagroo.
