Paresh Rawal has revealed why he decided to be a part of Dream Girl 2. In a conversation with Pinkvilla, Rawal said that Ayushmann Khurrana’s portrayal of his character Pooja, was one of the factors that prompted him to say yes to the film.
The actor said, “Mujhe novelty acchi lagi thi subject ki. Writing bohot achhi lagi thi. And mujhe Ayushmann ka character bohot achha laga tha. Jis tarah unhone play kiya. Nahi to normally humne dekha hai kaafi caricature-ish kar dete hain, kaafi behuda bana dete hain. Unhone nazaakat bhi rakhi. Sabse acchi baat hai unki aankhon mein bhi lajja dikhti thi. To wo mujhe kirdaar bada achha laga. (I loved the novelty of the subject, and the writing of the film. I also loved Ayushmann’s character and the way he played it. Normally we see that the portrayal of such characters is reduced to caricatures and can get quite vulgar. Ayushmann kept it elegant, and there was shyness in his eyes. Which is why I loved his character).
Dream Girl 2 stars Khurrana and Ananya Panday in the lead roles and features a talented supporting cast that includes Rawal, Annu Kapoor, Rajpal Yadav, Vijay Raaz, Asrani, Seema Bhargava Pahwa, Abhishek Banerjee and Manjot Singh. The film, directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, will be released in theatres on August 25.
