The film, which is an out-and-out comedy, received positive reviews and word-of-mouth from the audience. This coupled with Khurrana’s newfound stardom seem to have worked majorly in favour of the film. 

Dream Girl earned an impressive Rs70.12 crore nett in its first week. In the second week so far, it has made a good Rs31.50 crore nett. The film’s grand total currently stands at Rs101.62 crore nett. As per our trade sources, it is made at a cost of Rs30 crore. Hence, it has achieved a high return in investment. 

Khurrana’s highest earner is Badhaai Ho which had a lifetime collections of Rs134.46 crore. It needs to be seen if Dream Girl crosses that number at the ticket window and becomes the actor’s highest score.
