Speaking about Dream Girl, the movie is set against the backdrop of Mathura. Dream Girl is a comedy of errors with an ensemble cast of Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz, Abhishek Bannerjee, Manjot Singh, Nidhi Bisht, Rajesh Sharma, Raj Bhansali among others.
Ayushmann Khurrana, who has dubbed in a female's voice, spoke at length about his character in an interview. He said, "In our country, there has been a tradition, whenever Ramleela happens, a boy becomes Sita. But we never gave this any importance. This doesn't happen anywhere but in India. I want to do films which tell our lesser talked about stories".
"The character that Raaj has written is unbelievable. I don't think I've done any film being this fearless. I've usually played in subtlety but this one is out there and a lot of fun," he added.
On August 14, the makers released the first song from the movie, titled Radhe. The song is sung by Amit Gupta and written by Kumaar and Shabbir Ahmed and is all set to start a laughter riot just like the trailer. Speaking about Ayushmann's appearance in the song, director Raaj Shandilyaa said, "When Ayushmann had to dress up as Radha or Sita, he lost weight and worked on the nuances to look feminine."
National Award-winner Ayushmann will be playing mythological characters, Sita and Draupadi, and lending a female voice to these characters, which adds a feather to his cap and uniqueness to the storyline. Directed by Raaj Shandilya and produced by Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor, and Aashish Singh, the film is all set to hit the screens on September 13, 2019.
