The trailer of actor Ayushmann Khurrana’s upcoming film, ‘Dream Girl’ just dropped and it looks like the actor is out to impress yet again. The actor, who recently won National Award for his brilliant performance in the thriller ‘Andhadhun’, is back to leaving the audience in splits.
In ‘Dream Girl’, Ayushmann plays a man who makes a living playing female mythological characters such as Sita and Radha in stage shows, much to the chagrin of his father (Annu Kapoor). Things take a turn when Khurrana’s character starts working in a call centre as a female telecaller, the seductive Pooja. Soon, everyone including his male and female customers fall head over heels in love with this sensual Pooja. The callers include a policeman played by Vijay Raaz, a young man (Akash Banerjee), and a woman (Nidhi Bisht).
Nushrat Bharucha and Manjot Singh respectively play the love interest and friend of Khurrana’s character.
The trailer is a laugh riot and the movie looks promising addition to the genre of “comedy of errors” movies.
Earlier, talking about the film, Ayushmann had told Mid Day, "I had to deliver 25 per cent of my dialogues in a woman’s voice. Since I come from a radio background, it’s easier for me to modulate my voice. I have spent years behind the mic, mimicking different people. Raaj had given me the references of a few men, who prank people by talking like a woman. I studied those videos extensively."
“The biggest challenge was to crack the right note. As a guy, I have a natural (deep) baritone and that makes it difficult to sound convincing as a woman. To transition between voices was challenging, but it wasn’t one bit exhausting. I am naturally drawn to different characters, so this was an adventure,” he added.
Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, the film is made under Ekta Kapoor’s production banner Balaji Motion Pictures. Raaj has also written the screenplay for the film.
‘Dream Girl’ is slated to release on September 13, 2019.
