Ayushmann Khurrana has begun working for his upcoming project Doctor G. Earlier it was reported that Mrunal Thakur has been roped in to play the female lead in the film, however, now according to the reports Mrunal has opted out of the project.
The film revolves around menstruation and sanitation and it was initially titled Stree Rog Vibhaag. Earlier it was also reported that Alaya F is in talkies with the makers for the film. Then Mrunal’s name started to revolve around the film.
A source was quoted as saying, “Mrunal had given her dates last year for this film, before the lockdown happened. Her role is a very strong one and the makers wanted this fresh pairing to add more value to the project. But now, when the crew decided on the dates, owing to Ayushmann’s schedule, Mrunal had to opt out since she has already committed the same dates to her other films like Pippa. She conveyed the message to the makers and they mutually agreed on parting ways.”
Now as per the information makers are now again hunting for an actress to star in the film. Source added, “Ayushmann plans to first shoot Anubhav Sinha’s film but that’s a quickie. They intend to wrap that film in about a month’s time much like Article 15 and then begin Doctor G. As for Mrunal, she had to pick between this and Pippa and she picked the latter as there’s been advanced talks of a three film deal with RSVP for her.”
