The news of the stolen script of the Bollywood movie ‘Dream Girl 2‘ from the Pakistani film ‘Naram Garam‘ has surprised and intrigued Pakistani movie buffs. The Pakistani film was never released, and its shooting never began, so people couldn’t know more about it. Interestingly, the scriptwriter of both the Pakistani film and Dream Girl 2 is Raaj Shaandilyaa, who also wrote and directed Aayush Mann Khurrana‘s ‘Dream Girl’. The writer and director of Dream Girl 2 is also Raj.
According to the case of the Pakistani film ‘Naram Garam,’ Raaj Shaandilyaa narrated the story of Dream Girl 2 to Pakistani filmmaker Jamshaid Jan Muhammad in Dubai two years ago. Jamshaid loved the idea and asked Raj to write the script. Raj got busy writing the script while Jamshed and his friend Umar Khitab Khan started casting the film. Initially, Imran Ashraf was offered the lead role, but Sheheryar Munawar Siddiqui was finalized for the role when Imran showed a lack of interest. Many names, including Neelam Muneer Khan, were considered for the heroine of the film. Sohail Ahmed and Saima Noor were finalized for two other important roles, and Saleem Mairaj was confirmed for another important role. However, the news suddenly came that Jamshed John had left Karachi and shifted to Dubai, and the film Naram Garam was closed as the lead actors had been pestering him for dates for a year.
On August 25, Dream Girl 2 was released, written and directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, and the film’s script turned out to be the same as Naram Garam. Raaj Shaandilyaa made a lot of money and fame with the 2019 release Dream Girl and was all set to make its sequel. Finally, he was given the green signal to make a sequel to Dream Girl by Ekta Kapoor, the producer of the first film, and he immediately narrated the same script to Ekta. The script was so good that Ekta immediately agreed, and the shooting of Dream Girl 2 started in August 2022. Exactly one year later, on August 25, 2023, the film was released. The box office business of Dream Girl 2 has crossed the magical mark of Rs 100 crore and the film continues to run successfully.

Now, let’s take a look at which Pakistani stars were cast in which roles in the same story titled Naram Garam. In Dream Girl 2, the role played by Aayush Mann Khurrana was to be played by Imran Ashraf or Sheheryar Munawar Siddiqui. Instead of Neelam Muneer, you can see Ananya Panday. The role of Paresh Rawal was offered to Sohail Ahmed, and Ismail Tara was considered to replace Anu Kapoor. Saima Noor was signed for the role of Seema Pahwa, and Saleem Mairaj played Manjot Singh‘s role in the Pakistani film.
These days, Jamshaid Jan Muhammad is busy in the business of event management in Dubai, but he must be musing on both the casting and success of Dream Girl 2. If this story was made in Pakistan, the audience would have seen a great movie full of entertaining minutes, which the Pakistani audience is eagerly waiting for.
