In an interview, Ranveer Singh, who takes on the role of Rocky, shared his excitement, stating, "Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani is a quintessential Karan Johar movie… every trope you've seen in Karan Johar movies, his brand of cinema you have loved – all there." The actor added, "It's going to be his quirkiest, zaniest film, and it's shaped up so well."

There is a helluva reason to look forward to Animal. For starters, the film stars Ranbir Kapoor, who truly is a master at becoming one with the character he portrays. The pre-teaser of the film gave a glimpse of the action-thriller, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga of Kabir Singh fame, hinting at a display of sleek and enthralling action sequences that push the boundaries of cinematic excellence. Ranbir commented about his character, "It's a new territory for me. It's a crime drama and a father-son story. It's something audiences don't expect me to do. It has got shades of grey. He is very alpha, again, something I'm not. So, I'm looking forward to it."

Directed by Raaj Shaandilya and produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, the film promises to be a complete blast. Talking about the film, Aysuhmann said, "I am super stoked about Dream Girl 2! This is my second outing with Balaji Motion Pictures, and I am thankful to Ektaa that she has carried this franchise forward and made it bigger. I have found a friend in Raaj, and it's exciting to team up with him again. Ananya Panday has been paired with me, and I am looking forward to seeing the audience's reaction to our chemistry. Along with a cracking ensemble cast of Annu Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Vijay Raaz, Manoj Joshi, Rajpal Yadav, Seema Pahwa, Manjot Singh, Abhishek Banerjee, Asrani Saab, Dream Girl 2 is sure to take the audiences on a hilarious roller-coaster ride."
