The post was accompanied by an audio message from ‘Pooja’, who read out the note. “Mere priya Aashiqon, Chaar saal baad aapke Dil Ka Telephone phir se ring ring hoga. Ab iske liye taiyaari bhi toh shaandaar, dhamakedaar aur smoochiebhari honi chahiye na? Toh karo thoda aur intezaar; And keep sending lots of pyaar! Ab #7KoSaathMein nahin, Pooja ki kiss on August Pachees! Dream Girl 2 releasing in theatres on 25th August 2023. -Aapki pyaari Pooja."
As per reports, the release has been pushed due to the heavy VFX work required for the film.

They will be joined by new entrants like Seema Pahwa, Govardhan Asrani, Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav and Manoj Joshi. In Dream Girl, Ayushmann played a hotline caller, who changed his voice into a woman’s to lure men.
Ayushmann was last seen in An Action Hero. Ananya, on the other hand, was last seen in Liger, alongside Vijay Deverakonda. She will be next seen in Kho Gaye Hum Kahan alongside Siddhant Chaturvedi and Adarsh Gourav. She also has Netflix series Call Me Bae on the cards.
