Starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Ananya Panday in lead roles, the film made Rs 16 crore on Sunday and will now face the Monday test. Dream Girl 2 should see a boost in ticket sales on Wednesday, which is Raksha Bandhan; in addition to the festival, it also has another weekend in which to gain traction give that the the next big release – Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan – is two Fridays away.
“Dream Girl 2 has a rock-solid opening weekend. The massy flavour has helped it score beyond metros/urban centres. Most importantly, the growth on Day 2 and 3 places Dream Girl 2 in a comfortable position. Friday 10.69 cr, Saturday 14.02 cr, Sunday 16 cr. Total: Rs 40.71 cr. India biz. Going forward, Dream Girl 2 needs to maintain the grip on the make-or-break Monday,” Taran Adarsh posted on X.
Besides the Raksha Bandhan holiday on Wednesday (which should witness a spike in biz), Dream Girl 2 will continue to enjoy an unopposed run in its Weekend 2. The film needs to collect as much as it can, before Jawan strikes on (Thursday) 7 September 2023,” he continued.
