National Award-winning actor Ayushmann Khurrana, whose new film Dream Girl released this weekend, says he will not do films that are regressive.

“Being part of progressive cinema, I will never do something regressive… even in a conventional film like ‘Dream Girl’, which has the essence of nineties. The way the songs are placed in the film is also like the nineties. There is a perfect place for each song, which is a lip sync. It all goes out seamlessly, with the dialogues and stuff like that. It still gives a message in the end. So, I will never do something that is regressive and outdated as far as message is concerned,” Ayushmann told TOI.

Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, Dream Girl, a romantic comedy, also features Nushrat Bharucha, Abhishek Banerjee, Nidhi Bisht and Manjot Singh.
