Every budding actor has their own aspirations and dream roles, that they would like to work on while debuting in Bollywood. Some go for intense roles, while some want to be launched as the chocolate boy or Kareena Kapoor’s famous character Poo from ‘Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham’.
Similarly, Ayushmann Khurrana who was raised in a family where Bollywood movies were watched thoroughly, had always wanted to play characters like Shah Rukh Khan's in Kabhi Ha Kabhi Na, Aamir Khan's character in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar.
During the trailer launch of his upcoming movie Dream Girl, Ayushmann opened up about his dream role and how he never expected to be launched in the industry as a sperm donor. He said,
When you come to Mumbai, you create a certain perception in your mind because you've grown up on Hindi films. I thought Shah Rukh Khan's character in Kabhi Ha Kabhi Na would be my dream role. Then I thought Aamir's character in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar and even Amitabh sir's character in Shakti was my dream role. I never thought I would arrive as a sperm donor and then do Dream Girl or an Article 15. The script writers today think ten steps ahead of perhaps what I can think. They surprise you with different characters.- Ayushmann Khurrana
The 34-year-old actor, who is currently basking in his achievement for receiving the best actor award in National Film Awards 2019, was snapped with producer Ekta Kapoor, Nushrat Bharucha, first-time director Raaj Shaandilyaa, Manjot Singh and Abhishek Banerjee at the trailer launch of Dream Girl.
Dream Girl is a story of a man who makes a living by playing not only female mythological characters like Radha and Sita in plays, but also impersonates a seductive female named Pooja who talks to the customers and makes them fall in love with his fictitious character while working in a call centre. The callers include Vijay Raaz – a policeman, Abhishek Banerjee – a young man and Nidhi Bisht – a woman.
