At the trailer launch of Dream Girl2, when Ananya was asked about the same, she said that she doesn’t see it as an issue because the age gap has always been there on the celluloid. She said that people shouldn’t look at age gap while watching the film otherwise it will be a problem.
“I don’t think ye aaj ka issue hai. (I don’t think it’s an issue). The age-gap has always been there. I don’t think people should think about the age when watching the film. They’re thinking of the age then it’s a problem. Agar do log character mein suit hote hai, toh it’s alright,” Ananya said at the event.
Talking about her experience with Ayushmann, Ananya said that she was completely blown away from his latkas and jhatkas and she was trying to copy him. “I had a great time shooting with Ayushmann, but I enjoyed working alongside ‘Pooja’. I haven’t given any inputs to Ayushmann (about how to play the character of a woman). I rather learnt from him. I was amazed looking at him,” she added.
Dream Girl 2 is a sequel of Ayushmann’s 2019 comedy-drama, in which he featured as Karam, a man whose female voice impersonation as Pooja begets attention from others. The follow-up movie also stars Ananya Panday. It also stars Annu Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Vijay Raaz, Manoj Joshi, Rajpal Yadav, Seema Pahwa, Manjot Singh and Abhishek Banerjee.
