Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan also stars Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao, Manu Rishi and Sunita Rajwar in pivotal roles. The film features Ayushmann and Jitendra as a gay couple and Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao as Jitendra's homophobic parents.
The film opened to lukewarm reviews on February 21. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 2.5 stars out of five and wrote: "The film may be erratic in parts, but its entertainment quotient is delightfully high for a film tackling a clash between conservatism and freedom, between tradition and modernity. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is anything but perfect but is easy to watch - and like."
Directed by Hitesh Kewalya, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan clashed with Vicky Kaushal's Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship at the box office.
