Dream Girl Box Office Collection Day 1: Ayushmann Khurrana’s New Movie Collects INR 10.05 Crore

Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl has received many positive reviews and seems to have managed to pull in large crowds on the first day of its release.

Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha starrer, Dream Girl — which hit the screens on Friday, 13th September — collected INR 10.05 Crore on the first day of its release, making it Ayushmann’s biggest opener till date. Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, the film follows the story of an actor, Karamveer Singh (Ayushmann), who plays female characters on stage, and then takes up a job at a female friendship call centre, where he impersonates a woman’s voice to respond to lonely male callers as 'Pooja'. This comedy film, with its trailer and positive reviews, seems to have created a buzz and is pulling in crowds. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh reported on Twitter,

“#DreamGirl takes a heroic start... Emerges #AyushmannKhurrana’s biggest opener to date... Has also opened bigger than several mid-range films [2019] like #Uri [₹ 8.20 cr], #LukaChuppi [₹ 8.01 cr] and #Chhichhore [₹ 7.32 cr]... Fri ₹ 10.05 cr. #India biz.”

He also compared Dream Girl’s opening numbers with Ayushmann’s previous films,
“Ayushmann Khurrana versus Ayushmann Khurrana... *Day 1* biz...
2019: #DreamGirl ₹ 10.05 cr
2018: #BadhaaiHo ₹ 7.35 cr [Thu; #Dussehra]
2019: #Article15 ₹ 5.02 cr

2018: #AndhaDhun ₹ 2.70 cr
2017: #BareillyKiBarfi ₹ 2.42 cr
#India biz.”

Most film critics have attributed the film’s success to witty dialogues and to Ayushmann, who has recently become one of Bollywood’s most bankable actors. A review in the Hindustan Times lauded the National Award winner’s performance, saying “the actor deserves a pat on the back for effortlessly pulling off this tough act proving once again why he continues to scale heights. Each time he talks in the voice of Pooja, you actually pinch yourself to believe it’s really him!” The film also stars Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz, Raj Bhansali, Nidhi Bisht and Abhishek Banerjee in important roles.
