Ayushmann Khurrana is all set to reunite with his 2019 film Dream Girl director Raaj Shaandilyaa and Ekta Kapoor for the sequel of the movie. The film had turned out to be a blockbuster success at the time of its release.
According to a source in Pinkvilla, the movie is set to go on floors in the second half of 2022. “Ayushmann Khurrana, Ekta Kapoor & Raaj are all excited to expand Dream Girl into a franchise. The team has been working on script for a while now and the things have finally been locked. The pre-production work has begun, and the film is expected to go on floors as early as June 2022,” said the source.
In the original film, Khurrana essayed the role of a cross-gender actor whose female voice impersonation begets attention from others. It also featured Annu Kapoor, Manjot Singh, Vijay Raaz, Abhishek Banerjee, Raj Bhansali and Nidhi Bisht in supporting roles.

Further, the report states that Dream Girl 2 will also be a comic entertainer with a subtle social message towards the end, just like the first part. It will reportedly be a follow up to the 2019 film. However, an official confirmation is yet to be made.
Meanwhile, on the work front, the Vicky Donor actor was last seen in Abhishek Kapoor’s film, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui opposite Vaani Kapoor. Currently, he is working on Aanand L Rai Action Hero in London.
Apart from this, Ayushmann will also be seen in Anubhav Sinha’s Anek which happens to be a political thriller by Anubhav Sinha and Anubhuti Kashyap’s Doctor G as Dr Uday Gupta along with Rakul Preet Singh, which marks his third collaboration with Junglee Pictures after Bareilly Ki Barfi and Badhaai Ho.
