After registering fantastic collections on its opening day, Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha's Dream Girl witnessed a huge growth on its second day at the box office. As per the early estimates, the film raked in around Rs 16 crore today and now stands with the grand total of Rs 26 crore. Looking at the current scenario, we are definitely expecting a Rs 40 crore weekend at the ticket windows.
While the lead star Ayushmann Khurrana is basking the success of this film, he said that he will never do something regressive. "Being part of progressive cinema, I will never do something regressive... even in a conventional film like 'Dream Girl', which has the essence of nineties. The way the songs are placed in the film is also like the nineties. There is a perfect place for each song, which is a lip sync. It all goes out seamlessly, with the dialogues and stuff like that. It still gives a message in the end. So, I will never do something that is regressive and outdated as far as message is concerned," Ayushmann told TOI.
"I'm all for great commercial cinema that allows me to reach out to a much wider audience base and engage with them. I realised that by doing such masala movies, I'm actually widening the reach for my other films that I often do to spark a social conversation," he added.
"If they like me in such commercial Bollywood cinema, they will most probably come back to see a project that could be extremely relevant and topical and important for people to see and ponder over. That would give me the fulfilment I seek by being an artiste. So yes, there is a vested interest for me to do 'Dream Girl' because by doing so, I can pull a lot more people for my socially relevant films," concluded the "Article 15" actor. So, do you think, Dream Girl has the potential to enter the Rs 100 crore club? Tweet to us @bollywood_life
