For Ayushmann Khurranna, it is indeed a ‘shubh mangal’ moment for him and he can pretty much begin to distribute some ‘barfi’! After Bareilly Ki Barfi, his Shubh Mangal Saavdhan has managed to tickle the funny bone as well. A light-hearted flick, it has taken a good start at the Box Office, what with 2.71 crore coming in. Considering the fact that the subject of the film (erectile dysfunction) is not the kind which can be considered (at least on face value) for large audiences, this R S Prasanna directed affair has actually managed to get its fair share of footfalls.
The film has in fact opened even better than Bareilly Ki Barfi [2.42 crore] though the fact also remains that Eros gave it a much wider release. That also stems from the kind of confidence that the makers had in the film since flooding the screens with a product doesn’t necessarily translate into good numbers all the time.
