Mumbai: Writer and director Raaj Shaandilya, who is best remembered for establishing hit show like Comedy Circus, is all set to start shooting for the next schedule of his directorial debut 'Dream Girl'. The film features Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha in lead roles.
The talented writer-director, who has written dialogues for films like Freaky Ali and Bhoomi, managed to convince Ayushmann Khurrana, who is one of the most sough-after actors in Bollywood, in just ten minutes.
A source close to the project informs, “After the success of Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho, Ayushmann Khurrana is one of the busiest actors in Bollywood. Producers are lining up for singing him. But when Raaj approached Ayushmann, he immediately agreed for the film. He just went through the script for ten minutes and said yes. Raaj is a brilliant writer and his comic timing is amazing. Khurrana was quite spell-bounded by the script.”
'Dream Girl' is a quirky entertainer. Produced by Ekta Kapoor, the comedy sees Khurrana play a small-town guy who bags the role of Sita in Ram-Leela, owing to his ability to speak in a female voice.
It is slated to release theatrically on September 13, 2019....
