Ayushmann Khurrana’s latest blockbuster, ‘Dream Girl 2’, continues its triumphant march at the box office, steadily nearing the coveted Rs 100-crore mark. As of September 5, the domestic net collection of the film was an impressive Rs 91.96 crore. Despite the fierce competition posed by other big releases like Akshay Kumar’s ‘Oh My God 2’ and Sunny Deol’s ‘Gadar 2’, ‘Dream Girl 2’ has managed to carve out a substantial audience, resonating well with moviegoers since its release on August 25.
Following the immense success of the original ‘Dream Girl’ in 2019, director Raaj Shaandilyaa took the helm once more to craft its much-anticipated sequel in 2023. The film garnered a positive reception right from the get-go, raking in a substantial Rs 10.69 crore on its opening day in India. According to preliminary trade analyses, the film secured an additional Rs 3 crore on its 12th day in theatres, maintaining a respectable 16.46% occupancy on Tuesday, September 5.
Set against the vibrant backdrop of Mathura, ‘Dream Girl 2’ chronicles the tumultuous life of Karam, a young local portrayed by Ayushmann Khurrana. As Karam navigates the intricacies of love and life, he finds himself enamoured with Pari, a role brought to life by Ananya Panday. However, life seems to have other plans for Karam, who refuses to take his earnest efforts seriously. In a quirky twist of fate, Karam assumes the persona of Pooja, igniting a series of loud events and adding an extra layer of complexity to his already chaotic existence.
As the movie approaches a significant milestone in box office collections, all eyes are now on how it will fare in the coming days, especially with the release of Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Jawan’ looming on September 7. Amidst this bustling cinematic landscape, ‘Dream Girl 2’ is a testament to Ayushmann Khurrana’s star power and the audience’s love for a good, hearty Bollywood comedy.
