The trailer of the film created quite a buzz, and Ayushmann's quirky performance caught everyone's attention.
And, now he has revealed why he chose to do the film.
"Was unique because it is going back to the roots"
In the movie, Ayushmann plays the role of a small-town guy whose ability to speak in a female voice leads to hilarious situations.
While talking about the movie, the actor stated that the uniqueness and quirkiness of his character in Dream Girl drew him to the movie.
"It was unique in a way because it's going back to the roots," he added.
Ayushmann feels his character is similar to several theater actors
Ayushmann, who did theater before films, feels that Dream Girl is a story of those male actors who play female characters in Ram Leela and other plays.
"This is the story about that guy. And for some reason, his father isn't proud of the fact that he's playing a girl in Ram Leela," he added.
However, his character is gifted, the 34-year-old notes.
Some men fall in love with him, says Ayushmann
"He is gifted- he can talk in two voices, both male and female - he utilizes this talent of his and joins a call center. Some men fall in love with him, and it's about how he deals with the situation," Ayushmann reveals further.
He used to take 3.5 hours to get ready
Notably, transforming from Lokesh to Pooja for the movie wasn't a cakewalk for Ayushmann.
In fact, it used to take him almost three and a half hours to get ready before the shoot.
Sharing his experience, he stated, "Dressing up like a female is a task."
