Dream Girl is khurrana's second movie to have crossed the coveted Rs 100-crore mark. His earlier film Badhaai Ho had raked in Rs 137 crore at the box office.
"The era of good content in here and audiences want to see the most disruptive, different content in every genre. I am glad that people are connecting with the kind of cinema that I am doing and it only motivates me to be braver with my film choices," Ayushmann had earlier said about the movie's success.
The strong second-weekend collection of the comedy-drama comes on the back of poor earnings of its competitors. On Friday, September 20, Sonam Kapoor's The Zoya Factor, Sunny Deol's directorial debut Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas and Sanjay Dutt's Prassthanam were released, which collectively made less than Rs 3 crore on their opening day.Film Dream Girl, which hit the screens on September 13, has become Ayushmann Khurran's fifth consecutive hit in last two years. The actor's last hit was June released Article 15, which earned Rs 65.45 crore at the box office. His previous hits were Bareilly Ki Barfi (Rs 34.55 crore), Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (Rs 43.11 crore), Andhadhun (Rs 74.99 crore) and Badhaai Ho (Rs 137.61 crore).
Ayushmann essays the role of a young man who imitates a woman's voice in a tele-caller job in Dream Girl. His stint in the adult hotline goes haywire when customers, both men and a woman, fall for him and start looking for the woman behind the voice. The film's content and good reviews are two of the major factors for Dream Girl's box office collections.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor and Nachiket Pantvaidya, the film is supported by a cast of talented actors like Pyaar Ka Punchnama and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety famed actress Nushrat Bharucha, veteran actor Vijay Raaz, Annu Kapoor, Abhishek Banerjee, Nidhi Bisht and Manjot Singh.Dream Girl's director Shaandilyaa said Ayushmann Khurrana was his first and only choice for his directorial debut film 'Dream Girl'.
