Mumbai, Aug 7 | Actor Ayushmann Khurrana will soon head to the city of Prayagraj to shoot for his upcoming film ‘Doctor G’. While this will be his first time shooting there for a film, the actor has an emotional and nostalgic connection with the city.

Ayushmann says, “I have always wanted to travel the length and breadth of our beautiful country and fortunately my work is taking me to incredibly distinct destinations. I will be shooting a film for the first time in Prayagraj. Coincidentally, when I was participating in ‘Roadies’, I rode through this city and shot for the series.”
Ayushmann says he was charmed by the beauty of Prayagraj during the shoot of ‘Roadies season 2’.
“I still remember getting mesmerised by it’s history, heritage and architecture. Prayagraj sees the confluence of three rivers – Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati – and I was deeply enamoured by its breathtaking beauty. I will be shooting again in this beautiful city and I can’t wait to go back,” says Ayushmann.
The actor, who made his film debut with ‘Vicky Donor’ in 2012, eventually became part of both critical and commercially successful films.
