Ayushmann Khurrana who will next be seen in Dream Girl 2 alongside Ananya Panday shared that being a part of a comedy franchise was never the plan, Dream Girl 2 just happened to him accidentally.
Talking about the same, Khurrana shares, "I had never planned that I will have a hit comedy franchise in my filmography. This, honestly, has accidentally happened to me. As luck would have it, I have only scouted for disruptive projects that are entertaining and engaging to as many people as possible! I chanced upon the Dream Girl franchise and it ticked all the right boxes for me because it is truly a break-out concept that hasn’t been explored by heroes of my generation."
He further adds, " I like to always be original as an artiste and bring out of the box concepts to people. You can’t get any more different than the Dream Girl franchise which is why I feel people have loved the first film so much and now the trailer reaction for Dream Girl 2 suggests that we are on the right track to deliver a solid entertainer to audiences. Every promotional material of this franchise has been loved by people. So, I hope they truly love Dream Girl 2. We have worked hard to bring people an entertainer that should make them fall off their seats."
Dream Girl 2 is directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa and also stars Annu Kapoor, Abhishek Banerjee, Paresh Rawal, Manjot Singh, Vijay Raaz and Rajpal Yadav in prominent roles. Dream Girl 2 releases in theatres on August 25.
