Unsure about why she was not approached for the sequel, Nushrratt shared, “I was a part of Dream Girl 1 and I love that whole team.
I terribly miss working with them. But why they didn’t cast me in Dream Girl 2, I think only they can answer. I don’t know, there is no logic and there is no answer to it. But why didn’t they cast me? I am a human being, so of course it hurts. And of course it feels unfair. But I get it, it is their decision. Cool, no problem.”
Call it fate or not, but stars have been aligned in a way that Nushrratt is arriving with her next film, ‘Akelli’, on the same date as ‘Dream Girl 2’. “I didn’t know my film was going to be released on the same day as ‘Dream Girl 2’. Technically my film was to release on the 18th (August) but because of some censor issues, we didn’t have permissions of certain kind and we had to delay it. We didn’t want to, but had to. Raj sir reacted to my story and said, ‘All the best’. And I responded to him saying, ‘Sir, something is connected in our universe. I wasn’t in your film, but my second film is releasing on the same day’. So we have come to a place where we can smile about it,” said the actress.
When asked if she has watched the trailer of the sequel, Nushratt quipped, “I have watched it and I think it’s exactly in the right space. It’s good and what they do best in comedy. And I really hope that for Ayushmann, for Ananya, for Raj sir and everybody, this film does really well.”
