Ayushmann reveals how he transformed into Pooja for 'Dream Girl'
Ayushmann Khurrana, who is gearing up for the release of Dream Girl, is creating quite a buzz through both of his roles (Lokesh and Pooja) in the movie. Maintaining the momentum, the Andhadhun actor posted a video on social media, showing his transformation to Pooja, and it is hilarious. Sharing his experience, he stated, "Dressing up like a female is a task."
He used to take 3.5 hours to get ready
The video begins with glimpses from Ayushmann's van, wherein he is seen getting his make-up done for Pooja's role. It was certainly not a cakewalk for him, who used to take almost three and a half hours to get ready before the shoot. Recalling the struggle, Ayushmann stated that while performing with hair-extensions was difficult, he also had to shave his beard regularly.
Pooja's character gave Ayushmann an "elbow room" for experiment
However, Ayushmann feels one should go all out for the sake of entertainment. He also highlighted that Pooja's character gave him an "elbow room" to experiment a lot - be it with looks, the latkas-jhatkas or the voice tones. Talking more about voice modulations, he revealed that he had dubbed twice for the female version of his character, in the movie.
He has dubbed 25% of the dialogs in woman's voice
Ayushmann further stated that he gave around ten different takes for Pooja's character, before achieving the legit female voice for the movie. Apparently, he has dubbed 25% of the dialogs in that voice. Well, given the efforts as shown in the video, it will be quite interesting to see how the movie fares at the box office, post its release on September 13.
Ayushmann's transformation to Pooja is hilarious, but interesting
