Rajkumar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor’s Mr. & Mrs. Mahi has earned over Rs. 50 crore at the global box office in 2 weeks, the makers announced on Friday. Its India Net collection stands at Rs. 33.55 crore as per industry tracker The Sharan Sharma directorial released in theatres on May 31.

Sharing a still from the film to make the announcement, the makers wrote in the caption, “Destiny brought them together, but your love made them score big on dreams!”

Mr. & Mrs. Mahi tells the story of Mahendra and Mahima, played by Rajkummar and Janhvi, meeting each other for marriage prospects. Love blooms between them and they tie the knot. Both then discover a shared love for cricket. Rajkummar failed at being a cricketer and has a disapproving father (played by Kumud Mishra). When he sees Janhvi hitting a straight drive, he is convinced she should venture into sports, although she is not exactly interested. What begins is a complex tale, where Rajkummar’s character tries to vicariously live his dream through Jahnvi.

Written by Nikhil Mehrotra and Sharan Sharma, the film is produced by Karan Johar, Zee Studios, Hiroo Yash Johar, and Apoorva Mehta.

An excerpt from our review of the film read: “Mr. & Mrs. Mahi is Bawaal (2023) if it were a sports drama. It is an Ayushmann Khurrana film with a bruised male ego but no venereal diseases. It also has elements of a diabolical version of Chak De! India (2007), where coach Kabir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan) is empowering the women’s team only for personal fame and glory. What if all he was seeking was a garlanded welcome into the muhalla he was kicked out of for being a “traitor”.? What if the famous sattar (70) minute speech was actually to garner likes on the gram?”
