Here are the latest box office figures

In terms of his last few releases, Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan has recorded the fourth highest opening weekend numbers after Dream Girl (Rs 44.57 crore), Bala (Rs 43.95 crore), and Badhaai Ho (Rs 45.70 crore).

Here's a look at opening weekend earnings of Khurrana's recent films 

Directed by Hitesh Kewalya, the film deals with same-sex relationships, and the social stigma surrounding them. A light-hearted comedy, it can be seen as a progressive attempt towards the acceptance of same-sex couples — an issue that continues to remain a taboo in India even after a year of its decriminalisation by the Supreme Court.

Besides Khurrana and Kumar, Manurishi Chaddha, Sunita Rajwar, Maanvi Gagroo, Pankhuri Awasthy and Neeraj Singh, as well as Khurrana's Badhaai Ho co-stars Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta, also play pivotal parts in the film.
