The Actor Is Elated With The Film's Terrific Response
"I'm delighted that Dream Girl has opened well and there is a lot of positivity around the film. This personal milestone of mine is really encouraging for me. I tried to explore with Dream Girl and tried my hand at doing a mass entertainer and I'm happy that audiences across the country have accepted me as an entertaining hero. As an artist, I have tried to back projects that I felt had the potential to break out in their own genres and this day one result is a strong validation of that," the actor was quoted as saying.
He Also Congratulated His Entire Team
"I congratulate my director and writer Raaj Shaandilyaa for bringing me this amazing film that is an out and out good family comedy. I also thank my phenomenal producer Ekta Kapoor for her vision and support. Dream Girl‘s strong start is extremely heartening for all of us who gave it our all while making this film, he said further adding, "My heroine, Nushrat Bharucha, my co-actors - the truly brilliant Annu Kapoor, Manjot Singh, Vijay Raaz Abhishek Banerjee, Raj Bhansali, Rajesh Sharma, Nidhi Bisht and every actor in the film deserves all the credit for making this film a laugh riot. Also special credit to Nirman D, my co-writer and Ruchikaa Kapoor, my Creative Producer for being there at every step of the film."
