Ayushmann Khurrana and Ananya Panday’s film Dream Girl 2 releases in theatres on August 25. The film is a spiritual sequel to Dream Girl (2019) that starred Khurrana and Nushrratt Bharuccha in the lead roles. Bharuccha recently expressed her disappointment at being replaced by Panday in the sequel.

In an interview with indianexpress.com, Khurrana offered an explanation for the decision to cast Panday. The actor said, “This is an organic sequel to Dream Girl. We had to cast a different film, and Ananya fit the bill. I think she is very spunky and adds value to the film. The way she has taken the accent in the film, the Mathura accent, is very commendable. It was fun working with her and I would love to work with her in the future as well.”

Khurrana also admitted in the same interview that he was nervous about Dream Girl 2’s box office performance. “It is good to be nervous, it feels like your 10th board exam results are coming out, it is that kind of feeling. But at the same time, this has been my most massy film and it has also penetrated in two-tier and three-tier cities, so I am most excited about this one as a theatrical. Dream Girl 2 is of the theatrical palette, it is for a wider audience, you’ve ticked all the right boxes and it is also a sequel, so this is the safest of all because it is a heart-core family entertainer. It is a fun film.”

Dream Girl 2 is directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa and produced by Ektaa R Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor.
