Actors Sushant Singh Rajput and Ayushmann Khurrana have been going head to head with their latest releases – Chhichhore and Dream Girl, respectively. The films have been soaring high at the box office many weeks after their release. In recent news, Dream Girl is on its way to becoming the highest grossing film of Ayushmann’s career as the project approaches the INR150 crore mark. “Dream Girl nears lifetime business of Badhaai Ho, Ayushmann Khurrana’s highest grossing film,” trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted. About Chhichhore, Taran said the film has proven all calculations wrong. “Chhichhore proves all calculations and estimations wrong as it cruises past Rs 150 cr... One of the biggest success stories of 2019,” he wrote.
Ayushmann revealed it is a proud moment for him although he never does films with the pressure for them to enter the INR100 crore club. “Having another film in the Rs 100 crore club is obviously a nice moment for me though I never do films with the pressure to do Rs 100 crore every time I come on screen. As an artiste, I would then open myself up to making compromises and I never want to do that,” said Ayushmann. “I want to back original content at all times. I thrive by doing good cinema, films that make a mark because they are brilliantly written and brilliantly told on screen,” he mentioned. Ayushmann has proven his versatility as an actor yet again with the release of Dream Girl on September 13 and is still making big bucks at the box office. The Raaj Shaandilyaa-helmed comedy drama also stars Nushrat Bharucha. Dream Girl is the first film where Ayushmann and Nushrat are paired opposite each other. Ayushmann essays the role of a call center worker who talks to men while pretending to be a woman.
