Hema Malini might be known as the ‘Dream Girl’, but at least for the next few days, it’s Ayushmann Khurrana who is set to flaunt the title. His act as Pooja, as witnessed in the trailer of the comedy, is winning hearts and the reel-life situations are also playing out in real. Much like how the protagonist’s voice makes the entire town go crazy for her, it seems there is already a humongous fan following for Pooja in real life. That’s probably the reason why a promotional number released to talk to the character got so much traction that the telephone servers crashed.
Producer of the movie, Ekta Kapoor was the happiest with the response to the movie and delightedly wrote on social media, “Poojaaaa I love uuuuu! Tera ko mein Teri! Sachiiiii smoocheeee! In other news the phone number given to call pooja CRASHED THE SERVER FOR FIVE HOURS ! Such was the traffic! Poojaaaa kyaaaa jaaadoooooooooo hai yehhh ur truly #DREAMGIRL.” She also shared a snap from the trailer launch, alongside lead actors Ayushmann, who was dressed in a saree, and Nushrat Bharucha and director Raaj Shaandiliyaa.
The ‘Sachiiiii smoocheeee’ is one of the lines that Ayushmann’s character uses while indulging in flirty conversations in the movie.
We’re not sure if the telephone servers are back to normalcy, but the official handle of Ekta Kapoor's production house Balaji Motion Pictures, once again shared how one could talk to the beloved Pooja.
“Pooja is eagerly awaiting your call! 😍 What are you waiting for? Dial 70955 70955 now! 😉 #DreamGirl tera ko hojayegi teri. Releasing on 13th September,” read the post.
‘Dream Girl’, also starring Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz, among others, is the story of Ayushmann’s character who starts by enacting female roles in mythological plays before going on to join a call center where ‘her’ voice makes men get flirty with him.
