Ayushmann Khurrana, who is currently shooting for Abhishek Kapoor’s Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui has signed another film. Titled Doctor G, and to be directed by debutant Anubhuti Kashyap, the film is a campus comedy-drama where the main protagonist will be seen playing a doctor. Doctor G is produced by Junglee Pictures who has earlier collaborated with the actor Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) and Badhaai Ho (2018).
Sharing his excitement, Ayushmann said in a statement, “Doctor G is a script that I fell in love with instantly because it is super fresh. It is an extremely unique and 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.”
While debutant Anubhuti shared, “I am stepping into my filmmaking journey with all my passion and this project has me thrilled to be on sets. I am looking forward to working with Junglee Pictures and the ever so versatile and talented Ayushmann. This film is definitely exciting because it appeals to both the younger and the family audiences equally.”
Talking about reuniting with Junglee Pictures, Khurrana went on to say, “Junglee’s vision towards storytelling excites me. Their focus has always been towards high concept films which match with my thinking as an artist. We have had two very successful outings before and I’m hoping Doctor G will be a hat-trick of hits for us. Anubhuti’s vision for the film is mind-blowing and I’m sure it will be super fun to creatively collaborate with her.”
