Ayushmann Khurrana, Nushrat Bharucha and Annu Kapoor starrer Dream Girl is all set to release in theatres and the team are currently on a promotional spree. Ayushmann was recently seen on the sets of Dance India Dance 7: Battle of Champions along with his co-star Nushrat Bharucha. He was also left speechless and emotional, with the various performances on the show.
Ayushmann who became a dad at a very young age revealed how his friends were not married at that time and he had no one to turn to for advice. He said, “I was just 27 and my friends were not even married. He told me that I will understand how much he loves me only after I become a father myself.” Ayushmann is married to his childhood sweetheart Tahira Kashyap and they also have two beautiful kids. Talking about when his son Virajveer was born, Ayushmann recalled how he felt like he “was reborn as a person.”
Ayushmann on the show also sang the song “Ik Mulaqat” from Dream Girl which impressed Kareena Kapoor Khan so much, that she was seen asking Ekta Kapoor, who is the producer of Dream Girl to release a version of the song in Ayushmann’s voice as well.
In Dream Girl, Ayushmann will be seen essaying the role of Lokesh whose alter ego is a female named Puja. Ayushmann revealed that he was hugely inspired by Aamir Khan and Kamal Hassan for the role in his upcoming movie. He said, “Even Kamal Haasan sir in Chachi 420 looked and sounded like a lady with both Om Puri Saab and Amrish Puri Saab’s characters in love with his Lakhsmi Godbole. They both inspired me but Dream Girl revolves around the boy who works in a call centre, so I had to wear a saree or a lehenga in only around five scenes.”
