Ayushmann, the new-age star

HT Cafe - - FRONT PAGE -

The Ayushmann Khur­ranas­tar­rer Dream Girl is al­ready mak­ing the right noises across the na­tion with its trailer and chart­bust­ing mu­sic. And af­ter de­liv­er­ing five back-to-back hits, the Na­tional Award-win­ning ac­tor is def­i­nitely on his way to be de­clared the new-age star for fam­ily en­ter­tain­ers. Be it with un­usual sto­ries, or movies set in small towns to por­tray­als that are highly re­lat­able, Ayushmann is wi­den­ing his au­di­ence base in some never-seen-be­fore roles.

In fact, the ac­tor, who has had a phe­nom­e­nal run so far, is cred­ited with lead­ing In­dian cin­ema into a new di­rec­tion with his in­ter­est­ing choice of sub­jects. More­over, he has been able to re­de­fine the terms of a com­mer­cial box of­fice suc­cess with his range of un­con­ven­tional roles.

In fact, di­rec­tor Raaj Shaandilya­a has al­ready de­clared Ayushmann the ‘superstar of fam­ily en­ter­tain­ers’. “He has carved a unique path for himself. His fan base ranges from kids to the older gen­er­a­tion and ev­ery­one across dif­fer­ent age

groups. They ad­mire his acting, choices and sim­plic­ity. And the love he has re­ceived in the past few films proves that he is the true blue superstar of fam­ily en­ter­tain­ers,” he says.

And af­ter show­ing his acting prow­ess in his pre­vi­ous films, Ayushmann is gear­ing up for an­other fam­ily en­ter­tainer. Dream Girl will see Ayushmann play the role of ‘Pooja’ — the first male caller at an adult friend­ship call cen­tre — who im­presses ev­ery­one with his mes­meris­ing fe­male voice and unique ways of solv­ing peo­ple’s prob­lems.

Dream Girl will also see Ayushmann star along­side Nushrat Bharucha for the first time. Besides, the movie has a power-packed en­sem­ble cast con­sist­ing of Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz, Man­jot Singh, Nidhi Bisht, Ab­hishek Ban­er­jee, Raj Bhansali and Ra­jesh Sharma.

Dream Girl is directed by Raaj Shaandilya­a and pro­duced by Shobha Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Tele­films. Dream Girl is all set to re­lease on Septem­ber 13.
