Small town comedy Shubh Mangal Saavdhan starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead roles is getting the love of the audience ever since its release. And with its collection of Rs 2.12 crores yesterday, it has collected a total of Rs 21.9 crores and made it to the coveted Rs 20 crore club.
However, on Tuesday, it collected Rs 2.85 crores, experiencing only a slight increase from the Monday figures of Rs 2.53 crores. Also, the daily collections are expected to see a dip in the coming days, considering that we also have Poster Boys and Arjun Rampal’s Daddy releasing, both of which are bound to give Shubh Mangal Saavdhan a run for its money owing to the loss in the number of screens. Let’s see how this film fares.

Talking of the film’s earnings, trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “#ShubhMangalSaavdhan Fri 2.71 cr, Sat 5.56 cr, Sun 6.19 cr, Mon 2.53 cr, Tue 2.85 cr, Wed 2.12 cr. Total: ₹ 21.96 cr. India biz. ”
Currently, SMS is facing competition from Toilet: EK Prem Katha, A Gentleman and Bareilly Ki Barfi. But we also got to keep in mind that Shubh Mangal is a low-budget film, hence its earnings of Rs 21.96 crores in just six days are not bad at all. Its success is a proof of the fact that even content driven films are starting to make their mark in the industry.
