Bharucha is amused. We manage to tickle her funny bone, just not enough for her to crack. "There's absolutely nothing that I can tell you about the film," she says simply, quick to add, "All I can say is that it is exhausting but worth it all."

Speculations on Nushrat Bharucha playing the titular role were put to rest when her co-star Ayushmann Khurrana took to Instagram to state that he would feature "in and as" Dream Girl.

"The process of getting to know a person can also be suitable in building good chemistry. In the past, I have always known the actors I've collaborated with, be it Kartik [Aaryan] or Rajkummar [Rao]. That wasn't the case with Ayushmann. While working together, we discovered a novelty to our equation," said Nushrat Bharucha in interaction with mid-day.

Nushrat Bharucha and Kartik Aaryan share a warm bond together, and talking about the actor, Nushrat said: "We bond over shayaris and music. We often chat between our shots. While shooting for a romantic song, we were told to merely talk to each other. The makers have captured a wonderful montage of us having a regular conversation."

Talking to mid-day about the same, Nushrat Bharucha also said: "I was drawn to the stories and greenlit them before [Rao-starrer] Stree and AndhaDhun became hits. I wanted to work with great actors; they became stars later."

When asked what is common between Rajkummar Rao and her, Nushrat added: "Raj is teaching me the local dialect. Today was the one of my first classes with him." Having made her Bollywood debut with Rao in Love Sex Aur Dhokha, Bharucha describes her reunion with her first co-star as an "exciting and enriching experience".
