Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Dream Girl has created quite a buzz among audiences ever since its trailer release.
The actor attended several workshops for the Raaj Shaandilyaa’s directorial.To ace the voice-related part, Ayushmann prepped for his role of a man who mimics a woman’s voice perfectly. “That’s a first even for me, I have three to four different looks. The protagonist’s ability to speak in both male and female voices is the film’s core, ” he said in an interaction with Mumbai Mirror.
Acknowledging that he was in fact scared to drape a saree on the first day, he added that it was all about internalizing the character and getting the body language right. “None of the mainstream actors have played a role like this,but I love doing tricky stuff though I was scared to wear a saree on the first day. It got easier as we went along though I still don’t know how to drape one. But eventually, it’s all about how you internalise the character and get the body language right,” he stated.
Ayushmann also said that Dream Girl‘s script was by far the “funniest”. “As an actor, one needs to be socially responsible. I’m all for middle-of-the-road cinema with a concept which is novel and married perfectly with entertainment.”
Ayushmann’s last outing with Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15 has been touted to be the ‘best’ film of 2019 so far. Apart from the immense critical praise that he received for it, he also won the National Film Award for his performance in Sriram Raghavan’s Andhadhun.
Dream Girl is a romantic comedy drama starring Nushrat Bharucha, Manjot Singh, Annu Kapoor and Vijay Raaz. Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, it is slated to release on 13 September 2019.
