In an interview with the Times of India, Nushrratt Bharuccha said that she was disheartened that she isn’t a part of Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl 2. Bharuccha played a pivotal role in Dream Girl (2019) but is replaced in the sequel with Ananya Panday.
Talking to the Times of India, Bharuccha said, “When you’ve done a film, which has been well received, you do get connected with it. Dream Girl is always going to have a special connection. Also because Ayushmann was genuinely a delight to work with and he’s someone whom I honestly call my closest friend from the movies business.”
She further added, “My director Raaj Shaandilyaa, with whom I also did Janhit Mein Jaari, is also very close to my heart. So for me the whole setup and the whole team is special. Of course, it was disheartening to not be part of their second journey. But having said that, I wish the best to the film and I’m going to be cheering for them, watching the first-day first show, and hoping the film does more than 200-300 crores.”
Bharuccha is currently promoting her latest feature Chatrapathi opposite Sreenivas Bellamkonda. Dream Girl 2 is scheduled to release on August 25.
