New Delhi: Ayushmann Khurrana’s latest outing ‘Dream Girl’ is continuing its dream run at the box office. The film, which emerged as the actor’s biggest opener till date, is now inching closer to the Rs 100 crore mark.
The movie, which crossed the Rs 75 crore mark yesterday, has raked in a total of Rs 86.60 crore at the box office. Indian film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office collection of the flick on his Twitter handle.
Taran noted that ‘Dream Girl’ will be Ayushmann’s second film to hit a century after ‘Badhaai Ho’.
The film managed to rake in Rs 5.30 crore on its second Friday and Rs 9.10 crore on Saturday, taking its grand total to Rs 86.60 crore.
‘Dream Girl’ is maintaining its stronghold despite facing competition from new releases like Sonam Kapoor-Dulquer Salmaan’s ‘The Zoya Factor’, Karan Deol’s ‘Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas’ and Sanjay Dutt’s ‘Prassthanam’.
Ayushmann is known for taking up unconventional roles such as ‘Vicky Donor’, his debut film where he played a sperm donor and Sriram Raghavan’s ‘Andhadhun’, where he essayed the role of a blind pianist trapped in a murder mystery.
‘Dream Girl’, helmed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, tells the story of a small-town man played by Ayushmann, who can perfectly mimic a woman’s voice. He takes up the job of a telecaller, where he talks to strangers over the phone under a false name — Pooja. Many of Pooja’s callers end up falling in love with her, leading to hilarious consequences.
Apart from Ayushmann, the film also stars Nushrat Bharucha, Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz, Abhishek Bannerjee, Manjot Singh, Nidhi Bisht, Rajesh Sharma, and Raj Bhansali.
Backed by Ekta Kapoor, the film hit the screens on September 13.
