Ayushmann Khurrana, the poster boy of versatility and content cinema, is all set to grace the silver screen once again with his upcoming film, Dream Girl 2. With his great comic timing and ability to seamlessly slip into unconventional characters, Ayushmann promises to deliver another entertaining and rib-tickling performance as he takes on the role of Pooja, the much loved character from the first instalment of the successful franchise - Dream Girl.

Portraying the role of a woman is no easy feat, and leading the way have been cinematic legends like Kamal Haasan in Chachi 420, Govinda in Aunty No 1 and Aamir Khan in Baazi. These actors have continued to the push boundaries with their craft and have served remarkable performances to the audiences, leaving an indelible mark on the industry.  

Much like the stellar performances of his predecessors, Ayushmann's portrayal of Pooja is expected to be a delightful and unforgettable experience for audiences. He has personally found these performances inspiring and is delighted to get a chance to recreate elements from them in ‘Dream Girl 2’.  

Talking about the same Ayushmann Khurra shares, “True disruptors of cinema are my cinematic inspirations and what Kamal Haasan sir did in Chachi 420, Aamir Khan sir did in Baazi and Govinda sir did in Aunty No 1 are truly defining moments for an actor. I was mesmerised and blown away, looking at how brilliant they are to pull off playing a woman on screen. It was mind-boggling, to say the least. So, for Dream Girl and now Dream Girl 2, I would say that they have inspired me to even attempt to pull off a character who dresses up as a woman when stuck in a situation that leads to comedy of errors. My character of Pooja in Dream Girl 2 is an ode to these brilliant actors and the magic and entertainment they have provided to people in theatres."

He further adds, "I hope people love my performance in Dream Girl 2. I have worked very hard to bring Pooja to audiences. I love to watch people smile when they come to watch a film, and I hope Dream Girl 2 delivers this to the maximum.”

Dream Girl 2 is a light-hearted film bringing to the forefront the depiction of our society at large masterfully intertwined with Ayushmann's signature wit. Prepare to be enchanted as Dream Girl 2 takes you on a rollercoaster ride of laughter, emotions, and individual quirk.

Clowns like Ayushmann Khurana are trying to pussify men and normalize cross dressing and other woke ideologies. Disgusting!
