Ayushmann Khurrana took to social media on Tuesday to announce the release date of his upcoming comedy film Dream Girl 2 with a hilarious teaser in which his character Pooja is seen flirting with none other than Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan.
Pooja is seen in the teaser wearing a backless choli and ghagra as Pathaan calls her to wish her a Happy Valentine’s Day. Pooja and Pathaan then talk about Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film, Jawan. Pathaan says, “Meri Jawan aa aa rahi hai (my film Jawan is about to be released),” and asks Pooja when her film will be released. She reveals the Dream Girl 2 release date, which is July 7.
This is not the first time Ayushmann has paid homage to Shah Rukh Khan. In a recent tweet, the actor declared that he is a proud “SRKian.” While promoting his last release, An Action Hero, Ayushmann had made a pilgrimage to SRK’s Mumbai home Mannat. In Dream Girl 2 Ayushmann will appear in a dual role. The film is a sequel to his blockbuster 2019 film, in which he played a young man who provides a hotline service to lonely men, using a feminine voice.
His co-star Ananya Panday shared the teaser and wrote in her post, “I thought sign karne par film mein ek heroine thi, yeh @pooja___dreamGirl ko sab kyun call kar rahe hain guys?.”Produced by Ektaa R Kapoor, Dream Girl 2 also stars Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, Asrani, Vijay Raaz, Annu Kapoor, Seema Pahwa, Manoj Joshi, Abhishek Banerjee and Manjot Singh.
