Ayushmann Khurrana’s admiration for his co-star, Ananya Panday, shines brightly as he commends her remarkable adaptability in their upcoming movie ‘Dream Girl 2’. The Bollywood diva is known for embodying the quintessential urban charm that Mumbai has to offer. Growing up amidst some of the industry’s luminaries, it’s somewhat challenging to envision her seamlessly slipping into the role of a small-town girl, whether on-screen or off-screen.
Yet, Ananya Panday defies these preconceived notions with the infectious positivity and fervor she imbues into her characters. Her dedication transcends such labels, portraying her as a remarkably skilled actress. In their recent interview for ‘Dream Girl 2’, co-star Ayushmann Khurrana she expressed this sentiment unequivocally.
In conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Ayushmann Khurrana, and Ananya Panday, she candidly discussed their collaborative experiences during the filming of ‘Dream Girl 2’. Reflecting on his time working with Ananya, Ayushmann shared, “I was always thinking that she is an Urban Girl, how will she get accustomed to this milieu of Mathura, a tier 2 or 3 city in India, but I think she adapted well”.
In a country like India, where accents and dialects change every few kilometers, adapting quickly while nailing the rural Indian accents is no easy task, especially given that Ananya Panday is an urban Bombay girl. While both actors received assistance from their dialect coach, Ananya’s exceptional adaptability and versatility stood out.
During their exchange, Ananya Panday and co-star Ayushmann Khurrana delved into their shared affection for cinema, underscoring the unparalleled joy of sitting in a dimly lit theatre with friends, savoring popcorn. To them, that is what Dream Girl 2… a fun film that resonates with families and communities, for which which both actors have poured their hearts and souls.
Anticipation mounts as we look forward to witnessing Ananya Panday breathe life into the character of Pari, eagerly anticipating the delightful escapades she and Karam embark upon in Dream Girl 2, releasing in theatres on August 25.
