Dream bouy-ancy. There’s a #Dreamgirl song coming out. I will be making my eyebrows dance again. The same ones which are bushy. They dance better than me fosho. But they’re an intrinsic part of my body and my bio so I’m a legit dancer, not just an eyebrow dancer. Ok. Let me give a classic pose with poise now. And @ishabhansali has styled me again with her keen eye on fashion and colour palettes. @hinaldattani with her brushes and sponges has made me look more beautiful than usual. And @mohdjaved7639 perfected my unruly hair. Thank you!
Talking about his role, Ayushmann said, ''In our country there has been a tradition, whenever Ramleela happens, a boy becomes Sita. But we never gave this any importance. This doesn't happen anywhere but in India. I want to do films which tell our lesser talked about stories.""The character that Raaj has written is unbelievable. I don't think I've done any film being this fearless. I've usually played in subtlety but this one is out there and a lot of fun," the actor said.
Dream Girl is scheduled to be released on September 13.
