Khurrana, who earlier visited Prayagraj during his time on the reality show Roadies, said he was amazed by the “history, heritiage and architecture” of the city.  “I still remember getting mesmerised by its history, heritage and architecture. Prayagraj sees the confluence of three rivers – Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati. I will be shooting again in this beautiful city and I can’t wait to go back,” Khurrana said in a statement.

The actor said he would like to revisit the places where he had shot for Roadies. “It will bring back a deluge of emotions and nostalgia for me. I will try and find some time to visit the places that I had shot for Roadies just to relive my days of struggle and self-belief. It will be amazing to shoot in the city that carved my fortune at the start of my career,” he added.

Doctor G! is written by Sumit Saxena, Vishal Wagh, Saurabh Bharat along with Kashyap. Backed by Junglee Pictures, the film also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Shefali Shah. Prior to Prayagraj, the team had travelled to Bhopal for a month long schedule.
