The #SareeTwitter game has taken the social media platform by storm. From politicians like Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to actors such as Gul Panag and Divya Dutta, women have been posting beautiful photos of them in sarees. However, the actor who takes the cake is Ayushmann Khurrana. Rocking a green saree, he wrote, “#DreamGirl later this year. Sigh. #SareeTwitter.

Ayushmann has been preparing for his upcoming film Dream Girl, which will see him take on some unconventional roles, says director Raaj Shaandilyaa. The actor is set to play a man who dresses up as female characters like Sita, Draupadi and Radha.

“I can't reveal much about the film but the title fairly reveals the story. What I can tell you is that Ayushmann becomes Sita from Ramayana, Draupadi from Mahabharata and Radha from Krishna Leela. Now why he becomes them and how, that's what the story is about,” Shaandilyaa had told PTI.

The director also revealed that the film is set in Mathura and Ayushmann will be heard speaking Haryanvi and Hindi in the local accent. Dream Girl will be produced by Ekta Kapoor and also stars Nushrat Bharucha and Manjot Singh. It hits theatres on 13 September.
