A few weeks after finishing Anek, Ayushmann Khurrana started working on his upcoming campus comedy Doctor G, starring Rakul Preet Singh. The actor took to Instagram on Monday to share with fans that he and Rakul have started script reading sessions for the film, which will mark the directorial debut of Anubhuti Kashyap, sister of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap.
The film, funded by Junglee Pictures, was written by Anubhuti, Sumit Saxena, Saurabh Bhat and Vishal Wagh. Ayushmann first shared a photo of Doctor G’s hardcover script, a highlighter, and a few pens on an Instagram Story and wrote alongside, “And it’s starting!” The two main stars play the doctors in the film. The Instagram story shared his character’s name: Uday Gupta.
Later that evening, Ayushmann shared a selfie with Rakul, where they are seen holding the copies of the script. “The readings have started. Will tour later this month. #DoctorG, ”Ayushmann wrote, captioning the image.
Doctor G marks Ayushmann Khurrana’s third collaboration with Junglee Pictures after Badhaai Ho and Bareilly Ki Barfi. Announcing the film last December, Ayushmann said in a statement that he fell in love with Doctor G’s script because it was super fresh.
“It’s an extremely unique and innovative concept that will make you laugh and make you think. I am delighted to put on the mantle of the doctor for the first time in my career and also to deliver a message in the process that will hopefully speak directly to your hearts, ”the actor said at the time.
