Ayushmann Khurrana in and as Doctor G in Junglee Pictures’ next
The film will be directed by Anubhuti Kashyap as her debut feature
After two successful collaborations on Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) and Badhaai Ho (2018), Ayushmann Khurrana and Junglee Pictures are teaming up for a new film titled Doctor G.
To be directed by Anubhuti Kashyap, Doctor G is a campus comedy-drama where the main protagonist will be a doctor. The film is written by Sumit Saxena, Vishal Wagh and Saurabh Bharat, who is a doctor-turned-writer and has drawn inspiration from his medical college life experiences.
Talking about the film, Ayushmann says, "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.”
