During an interaction with News18, Ayushmann Khurrana opened up about his previous films, An Action Hero, Doctor G, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, and Anek which didn’t do so well at the Box Office even after receiving positive reviews from both the viewers and the critics. The actor said, “Absolutely! I believe that An Action Hero and Doctor G were decent films and they would have fared better if they were released now in this environment because people have gone back to their habit of visiting a theatre. The timing was different for those films.”
He further spoke about Dream Girl 2 and added, “I had to shift the gear and go mass with Dream Girl 2. We really needed the box office numbers. It has done its job and I’m glad that I’m personally exposed to a wider audience. Earlier, my audience was more urban but Dream Girl 2 has penetrated really deep into the heartland and smaller cities. It will only help my other films in the future.”
