Now after more than two weeks since its release Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan has certainly been a hit at the box office. The Ayushmann Khurrana lead film is the story of a gay couple fighting for their love and for their rights in a small conservative town.
In an interview, Khuranna spoke about the success of his film. The actor said, "When you do a film on a taboo topic, you have to first plan on how are you going to spread the message of the film to as many people as possible. So, for us, when we decided to take up an important subject like the legitimacy of same-sex relationships, we decided to do it through humor. It is because of that decision Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a success today,"
He added saying, "We were very conscious that films on this subject can be very tricky to deliver to audiences. So, we decided that we will entertain them thoroughly while giving them a thought to ponder on. I'm delighted that our crucial social message movie has done well. It has reached out to a considerable number of people and it has triggered a conversation within families."
The actor also said, "The success of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan lies here because it deals with one of the most taboo subjects for Indian audiences. Its success shows that India has evolved and that families are ready to come to theatres to watch films on this subject."
The success of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan will also pave the way for more films like this to appear on the big screen.
