Ayushmann Khurrana's upcoming film Dream Girl is featuring in headlines for all funny reasons. Producer Ekta Kapoor shared a picture from the film's trailer launch event and revealed in her post that the phone number given by the filmmakers to contact Pooja (Ayushmann's phone-pal name in the film) on the film's poster, crashed telephone servers for five hours. In Dream Girl, Ayushmann Khurrana plays Lokesh, who dresses up as female mythological characters for local theatre shows while he also doubles as Pooja, who speaks to people as their phone-pal for a living. Ekta Kapoor wrote, "Pooja, I love uuuuu! Tera ko mein Teri! Sachiiiii smoocheeee! In other news the phone number given to call Pooja crashed the server for five hours... Such was the traffic! Poojaaaa kyaaaa jaaadoooooooooo hai yehhh ur truly Dream Girl."
