The Golden Run Continues For Young Star Despite Picking Taboo Subject
The buzz for Ayushmann Khurrana’s latest release Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan was relatively less compared to his previous outings. The subject itself involving the taboo gay angle was deemed risky. In short, many expected failure and end of dream run of the young star.
However, all the naysayer’s doubts have been put to rest with a superb show of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavadhan on the first two days. The opening day was fantastic, with nearly 10 Cr Nett. The second day has shown growth further, suggesting a segment has liked it. The third is expected to grow further and bring in a healthy weekend total.
The weekend performance assures that Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavadhan is not a commercial failure. However, it will be the numbers in the weekday, which will determine where the movie headed. The subject still holds a limited appeal. It is the reason why the jump has not been huge, even though it was there.
Ayushmann Khurrana has seven back to successes before Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavadhan. He now adds eight one to the list. It is an envious run by standards among the younger lot. What is even heartening is the fact that not all of these came out of formulaic commercial projects.
