Ayushmann Khurrana who is known for doing non-conventional films, has described his next film ‘Dream Girl’ as his most ‘masala film’ yet.
Reported by FilmFare, Khurrana plays a guy named ‘Lokesh’ who likes to portray female deities in plays, as well as doubling-up as ‘Pooja’ at a call centre. Talking about the film, Khurrana said, “It’s the most masala film of mine. I feel, till now, my films were middle-of-the-road – something between critically-acclaimed and a commercial hit. But since I have done a commercial masala film for the first time, I have gone all out with it. Unlike a film like Article 15, this is the other side of the spectrum. So, I just want to tell the audience to keep their brains at home (Laughs) and have a good laugh along with entertainment.”
With the film set to release during the festive period of Ganesh Chaturthi, Khurrana shares how there was a spiritual vibe when making the film, “Ekta Kapoor is a very spiritual and religious person. She is a stern believer in the fact that it’s God, destiny and hard work that comes together. That’s what we have tried with Dream Girl too. Our Ganpati song, Dhagala Lagli has come out around the festival. Also, Radhe Radhe came out around Janamashtami…This time, it’s happening around Ganesh Chaturthi and the entire crew is gung-ho about it.”
This is the first time Nushrat Bhachura and Khurrana will be coming together onscreen. Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, ‘Dream Girl’ is slated to release on 13th September.
