Before donning the doctor’s coat for her role in Junglee Pictures’ Doctor G, Rakul Preet Singh put in a lot of work. The actress co-stars with Ayushmann Khurrana and Shefali Shah in the film, where she plays doctor Fatima. For this campus comedy-drama directed by Anubhuti Kashyap, Rakul had to master medical language and the subtleties of what happens in a hospital and operating room.
Director Anubhuti was passionate about portraying the medical profession in the film right from the start. The goal was to make the actors feel at ease in the environments that they would encounter as medical practitioners. As part of their preparation, the film’s team had experts perform special sessions with the cast — Rakul, Ayushmann, and Shefali — to make the medical environment in the film appear authentic.

Anubhuti, Sumit Saxena, Vishal Wagh, and Saurabh Bharat co-wrote the film, which features Rakul opposite Ayushmann for the first time. The film’s production team recently wrapped an extended schedule in Prayagraj, and it is expected to be finished by the end of this month.
