The much-anticipated commercial venture, “Dream Girl 2,” starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Ananya Panday, has fallen victim to the insidious threat of piracy, casting a shadow over its release day. This comedy-drama, produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures and directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, has reportedly been illicitly leaked on various torrent websites just hours before its scheduled release on August 25, 2023.
Leakage of “Dream Girl 2” Online The captivating movie trailer and melodious songs had already ignited considerable anticipation among audiences. However, the joy surrounding the film’s release has been dampened by reports of its availability for free HD download on notorious piracy hubs like Tamilrockers, Moviespie, Telegram, and Buzzhindi, among others. Unfortunately, “Dream Girl 2” is not the sole casualty of this menace. Reports indicate that Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel starrer “Gadar 2” has also suffered a similar fate.
Piracy Woes Continue The entertainment industry’s ongoing battle against piracy persists, with even the likes of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s recent release, “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani,” succumbing to the piracy scourge. Prior to this, Salman Khan’s “Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan,” Shah Rukh Khan’s “Pathaan,” Ajay Devgn’s “Bholaa,” and Kartik Aaryan’s “Satyaprem Ki Katha,” among several others, had all faced premature online leaks before their official release dates.
Telugu Cinema Not Spared Piracy’s reach has extended to the Telugu film industry as well. The comedic drama “Bro,” featuring South Indian superstar Pawan Kalyan and Sai Dharam Tej in prominent roles, also faced the unfortunate consequence of an online leak.
A Stellar Cast “Dream Girl 2” serves as a sequel to the 2019 hit film “Dream Girl” and boasts an impressive ensemble cast. Alongside Ayushmann Khurrana and Ananya Panday, the film stars Paresh Rawal, Annu Kapoor, Rajpal Yadav, Vijay Raaz, Asrani, Abhishek Banerjee, Manjot Singh, and Seema Pahwa, among others.
A Commercial Comeback Amidst the Pandemic Marking Ayushmann Khurrana’s return to the big commercial screen post the COVID-19 pandemic, “Dream Girl 2” is poised to be a significant release for the actor. His recent appearances in films like “Doctor G” and “An Action Hero,” both of which premiered in 2022, had showcased his versatility and prowess as an actor.
