Varun Dhawan's probably getting into the 'rubbing-his-eyes-in-disbelief' routine more regularly than what he would have done in his entire life.
With a whopping Rs 9.02 crore opening day collection on Friday, followed by Rs 11.25 crore on Saturday, Dhawan's latest film, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, has turned out to be his biggest grosser till date.

Alia-Varun-starrer Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya followed it up with another impressive show over the weekend: collecting an unprecedented Rs 33.74 crore. Overseas too, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya continued setting new benchmarks on the ticket counter: it earned $ 294,000 (Rs. 1.76 cr) in just two days of its release.
Earlier, Varun had said he worked the hardest on this film, which also stars Alia Bhatt. "To be honest, I worked harder on Humpty than my last film, Main Tera Hero. I did many workshops. I never did workshops in Main Tera Hero. There was a lot more improvisation in my dad's film. Humpty's director Shashank Khaitan is a different school. He controlled my expressions. I normally do a half-smile on camera. He showed me how to smile fully. I also delivered my lines slower, much slower."
