In 2019, Dream Girl was a massive success at the box office and was one of the highest grossing blockbusters of that year. While social media has been abuzz and speculations have been rife about a second instalment, Balaji Motion Pictures finally put all the rumours to rest by announcing the film and its release date.
The makers have dropped a teaser giving a sneak-peak into the second part of the Dream Girl Franchise, which is all set for a worldwide release on June 29th, 2023. Ayushmann Khurrana will reprise as Pooja and the effervescent Ananya Panday will play his lady love. Teh film will also see Annu Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Vijay Raaz, Manoj Joshi, Rajpal Yadav, Seema Pahwa, Manjot Singh and Abhishek Banerjee in supporting roles.
Dream Girl 2 traces the journey of a small-town boy Karam (played by Ayushmann Khurrana) who is trying to live a serious life in Mathura and falls in love with Pari (played by Ananya Panday) but life is hell bent on not taking him seriously. In a turn of events Karam becomes Pooja which creates further chaos in his already chaotic life.
Ayushmann Khurrana on being a part of Dream Girl 2 shared, "I am super stoked about Dream Girl 2! This is my second outing with Balaji Motion Pictures and I am thankful to Ektaa that she has carried this franchise forward and made it bigger. I have found a friend in Raaj and its exciting to team up with him again. Ananya Panday has been paired with me and I am looking forward to see the audience reaction to our chemistry.”
On joining the second instalment of the successful franchise, Ananya Panday said, "I am excited to be a part of Dream Girl 2 and working with the dream team of Ayushmann Khurrana, one of the finest actors of Bollywood and the true boss lady Ektaa Kapoor herself. I’m so grateful to be working with the most talented ensemble and of course the captain of our ship, the super Raaj sir. This one is going to be a treat for all those who loved Dream Girl. Can’t wait for the audiences to see it."
Directed by Raaj Shaandilya and produced by Ektaa R Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures, the film will be a whacky, comic caper that will definitely entertain the audiences, leaving them in splits.
