After the success of Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017), and Badhaai Ho (2018), actor Ayushmann Khurrana will be collaborating with Junglee Pictures for the third time. The film is titled Doctor G, and also features Rakul Preet Singh for the first time, is now on floors. Directed by Anubhuti Kashyap, the film is a medical campus comedy drama, which has the two actors playing doctors. The first look of Ayushmann made it to the internet, where he is seen in a doctor’s get-up.
The actor expressed his excitement as the film went on floors as he told Pune Times, “The subject of Doctor G is very close to me. Considering the lockdown restrictions, we all have been waiting to start the film and we are glad that the day has finally arrived.”
“It’s an honour to portray a doctor on the screen for the first time. I am truly excited to start shooting the film also because it’s going to allow me to relive my memories of being a student and living the hostel life. I’m looking forward to collaborating with my director Anubhuti,” adds Khurrana.
While Ayushmann will be playing the role of Dr. Uday Gupta, the actress will be seen as Dr. Fatima, a medical student who plays Ayushmann’s senior in the film. The concept is unique, intriguing and unlike something we have seen in mainstream cinema and the wait is surely going to be worth it!
Apart from Ayushmann and Rakul Preet, the film has been written by Sumit Saxena, Vishal Wagh and Saurabh Bharat, along with director Anubhuti Kashyap and also features Shefali Shah in a crucial role.
