Ayushmann Khurrana is an actor who always believes in surprising us with his amazing choice of films and stories. And this time around too, he has us super intrigued with his latest film announcement! The actor is all set to come together with Junglee Pictures after Bareilly Ki Barfi and Badhai Ho for their next titled ‘Doctor G’.
Doctor G is a script that I fell in love with instantly because it is super fresh. It is an extremely unique and an innovative concept that will make you laugh and also make you ponder. I’m excited to don the doctor’s coat for the first time in my career and also deliver a message in the process that will hopefully speak directly to your hearts.
The film is all set to be directed by Anubhuti Kashyap and will be a campus comedy drama where the main protagonist will be seen playing a doctor. The director, who is known for her mini-series ‘Afsos’ (Amazon Prime) and acclaimed short film, ‘Moi Marjaani’, is all set to make her feature debut with this film. She shares that she is thrilled to be on sets of her first full-fledged film and to work with Ayushmann. Excited to work with Anubhuti, Ayushmann adds, “Anubhuti’s vision for the film is mind-blowing and I’m sure it will be super fun to creatively collaborate with her.”
The film is written by Sumit Saxena, Vishal Wagh and Saurabh Bharat, who interestingly is a doctor-turned-writer and has drawn inspiration from his medical college life experiences. Saxena, who has written films like ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama‘ and Karan Johar’s ‘Lust Stories‘, has also penned the dialogues of this film.
With such a talented crew working on this project alongside Ayushmann, I sure am super thrilled for it and can’t wait to know more about this one!
