Ayushmann Khurrana's Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan hit the screens on Friday and has been receiving a lot of love and appreciation from the audience.

And now, US President Donald Trump has lauded the newly released gay rom-com movie.
"Great!" the US president wrote as he retweeted British human rights campaigner and LGBTQ+ activist Peter Tatchell's post praising the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer, thereby acknowledging the movie's progressive stance.
"A new #Bollywood rom-com featuring a gay romance is hoping to win over older people, following the decriminalisation of homosexuality. Hurrah!" tweeted @PeterTatchell.
