To be directed by Anubhuti Kashyap, this film is a campus comedy-drama, where the main protagonist will be seen playing a doctor. It’s been a while since that has happened in Hindi films and with Ayushmann playing Doctor G, the wait is definitely going to be worth it. Anubhuti Kashyap, who is all set to make her feature directorial debut with this film, shares, “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 versatile and talented Ayushmann. This film is definitely exciting because it appeals to both the younger and the family audiences equally.”
Amrita Pandey, CEO Junglee Pictures, adds, “We are thrilled to partner with Anubhuti on ‘Doctor G’ as her first feature film. The creative development team at Junglee along with the writers of the film, Sumit, Vishal, Saurabh and Anubhuti, have developed this high-concept and superbly entertaining script that we can’t wait to bring to life. Ayushmann will elevate the experience even more with this third outing with us.”
Ayushmann says, “Junglee’s vision towards storytelling excites me. Their focus has always been towards high-concept films, which matches with my thinking as an artiste. We have had two very successful outings before, and I hope that Doctor G will be a hat-trick of hits for us.”
Ayushmann’s previous collaborations with Junglee Pictures have owned the box office collections. ‘Badhaai Ho’ won two National Awards, one of them for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment. ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ was widely appreciated by the audience as well as the critics.
Anubhuti, who has co-written this film, has previously directed the dark comedy mini-series Afsos and the acclaimed short film, ‘Moi Marjaani’. Doctor G is written by Sumit Saxena, Vishal Wagh and also Saurabh Bharat, who interestingly is a doctor-turned-writer and has drawn inspiration from his medical college life experiences. Sumit, who has written films like ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ and ‘Lust Stories’ (one of the films in the anthology, which was directed by Karan Johar), has also penned the dialogues of this film.
