A Junglee Pictures production, the film will mark Khurrana’s third collaboration with the production house.
Ayushmann Khurrana has taken to social media to reveal his first look in Doctor G, a campus comedy directed by Anubhuti Kashyap.
The photograph shows Khurrana dressed in a white lab coat and black-rimmed spectacles, with a gynaecology textbook in hand. The actor captioned the picture saying that Doctor G is ready, now on to shooting. Khurrana has also shared a short video on location on his Instagram stories, presumably related to the film, with the hashtag, doctor. This is Khurrana’s third time working on a film since the start of the pandemic.
In an interview with the Times of India, Ayushmann Khurrana also talked about how much the role meant to him, saying portraying a doctor on screen for the first time was an ‘honour’ and that the subject of the film was very close to him. He also mentions his excitement at working with director Anubhuti Kashyap, known for her work on ‘Afsos’ and ‘Moi Marjaani’.
The shoot for the movie had begun in Bhopal last week. The Article 15 actor had said that he ‘had fallen in love’ with the film’s script, which he described as being ‘super fresh’, way back in December 2020.
This is the actor’s third film produced by Junglee Productions, after Bareilly Ki Barfi and Badhaai Ho.
The film also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Shefali Shah. It will be the first time that the trio appears on screen in a project together. The writing team includes Sumit Saxena, Vishal Wagh and Saurabh Bharat.
