Rakul Preet Singh consults medical experts for Doctor G role
The campus comedy stars Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead
Rakul Preet Singh stars alongside Ayushmann Khurrana in Doctor G. The medical campus comedy is directed by Anubhuti Kashyap and produced by Junglee Pictures.
For her character, Doctor Fatima, Rakul learned medical terms and consulted with experts.
"Shooting for Doctor G has turned out to be an interesting experience," the actor shares. "Since I play a doctor, the mannerisms and actions needed to be precise. It was mandatory to learn important things related to the medical world to make it look real on screen. The journey of becoming Doctor Fatima was an amazing process which I will cherish forever.”
“We wanted Fatima to look authentic," Rakul adds. "We did multiple look tests to get her look right. The idea was for her to look as close to real as possible and bring out the endearing quality of her character. By just wearing the doctor’s coat, you suddenly get a sense of responsibility even though I was only playing a character. While treating patients for scenes, one truly understands how much responsibility doctors have on their shoulders and how difficult their life is."
Doctor G is co-written by Anubhuti, Sumit Saxena, Vishal Wagh, and Saurabh Bharat. The makers have wrapped up a shoot schedule in Prayagraj and will be completing the film by the end of this month.
