Expressing his excitement, the actor 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 Girl2′.”
He further spoke about playing Pooja on-screen, “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.”Ayushmann praised everyone and said that it is a wonderful team and Annu Kapoor always proved “lucky” for him as he had done successful projects with him.
In the film, Ayushmann is seen pretending to be a woman named Pooja.
