Ayushmann on timing of Dream Girl 2 release
Talking about the wonderful performance of his film in the first week, Ayushmann told ANI, ” In the last 3 months, mid-budget and small-budget films are also running successfully. Earlier people used to feel that only big-budget movies would run. So, the timing of the movie is correct and it came in between Jawan and Gadar 2 but still made its own space and this will be the biggest victory of Dream Girl 2. “
Ayushmann on playing Pooja in Dream Girl 2
On playing Pooja on-screen, he said, “If the story is good and impactful, then not only girl but you will be ready to become a dinosaur. Actors want to undertake tough and challenging work. Previously, actors like Kamal Haasan sir, Govinda sir, and Aamir Khan sir have also played female characters, but for this role, I have competition with Madhuri, Sridevi, and Hema Malini. Because I thought I wouldn’t be able to do justice if will kept male actors in mind.”
Dream Girl 2 also stars Ananya Panday, Paresh Rawal, Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz, Rajpal Yadav, Manoj Joshi, Asrani, Abhishek Banerjee, Manjot Singh and Seema Pahwa. Ayushmann has said Annu Kapoor has always proved “lucky” for him as he had done successful projects with him like Dream Girl and Vicky Donor.
