Here are the latest box office figures for Dream Girl.

Dream Girl, directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, follows a small town man played by Ayushmann, who can perfectly mimic a woman's voice. He takes up the job of a telecaller, where he chats with strangers over the phone in his feminine voice and under a false name — Pooja. Many of Pooja's callers end up falling in love with her voice, leading to hilarious consequences.

The film, which grossed Rs 10.05 crore on Day 1, is Ayushmann's biggest opener (in terms of ticket sales) till date. The actor is known to take up unconventional roles such as Vicky Donor, his debut film where he played a sperm donor, or Sriram Raghavan's Andhadhun, where he played a blind pianist sucked into a murder mystery.

Here are the opening weekend figures of the actor's films from Bareilly ki Barfi to Dream Girl.

In an interview with Mid-Day, Ayushmann said he chose to be a part of the film because its story was "out-of-the-box." "Not only is it unique but also quirky at the same time. Dream Girl also underlines gender neutrality, where a guy is playing a woman. And the concept is very relatable. It's nothing new. Traditionally, in Ram Leela and all these folklore, plays or theatre, most of the actors who play female characters are males. This is the story about that guy," he said.

Dream Girl also stars Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz, Abhishek Bannerjee, Manjot Singh, Nidhi Bisht, Rajesh Sharma and Raj Bhansali.
