Talking about the story of this Hansal Mehta directorial, Simran is a story of a 30-year old US based Gujarati housekeeping girl who despite her flaws of being a kleptomaniac, divorce, gambler and alcoholic, dreams to fulfill her dreams.
Interestingly, the movie witnessed a box office clash with Farhan Akhtar's Lucknow Central which too has opened to an average response. It will be interesting to see who will take over the box office after the opening weekend.
