Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl and Akshaye Khanna’s Section 375 released in India last Friday. The former is a social comedy, while the other is a courtroom drama. Let us take a look at their box office collections over the weekend.
Releasing after Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Chhichhore, both Dream Girl and Section 375 failed to bring in the numbers on the first day. According to a report, Dream Girl managed to fill only 15% of all the morning shows. However, it is Ayushmann Khurrana’s largest opening in Bollywood, overtaking films like Uri and Luka Chuppi. On the other hand, Section 375 could only fill ten per cent. Both films, despite the unexpected responses on Friday morning, doubled their numbers over the weekend.
After earning just ₹ 1.45 crores on Friday, Ajay Bahl’s Section 375, the overall occupancy increased on Saturday. Added to earnings on Saturday, the film was at ₹ 4.52 crores. According to trade analysts, word-of-mouth has helped the film gain attention. On the third day, the film’s collection went up by two crores, giving a total of around seven crores. With Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl as its competition, we could say that this Akshaye Khanna and Richa Chadda starrer has managed to hold on by its own.

Ayushmann Khurrana has worked his magic, as Dream Girl eyes the ₹ 50 crore mark in the upcoming week. Making around ₹ 10 crores on the first day, this is Khurrana’s highest opener. Nearly doubling the collections, Dream Girl brought in seventeen crores on Saturday. On Sunday, the movie crossed the twenty crore mark as well. By the weekend, the total collection of the film was around ₹ 46 crores.
