Doctor G OTT Release: The Ayushmann Khurrana and Rakul Preet Singh starrer was released in the theatres on 14th October this year. Though the movie was not able to impress the audience much, the storyline of the movie was quite different. Doctor G, is about a medico who wants to specialise in orthopaedics but secures admission in gynaecology. The movie also featured Shefali Shah and Sheeba Chaddha in a pivotal roles. We all have seen Ayushman breaking the stereotypes by donning some out-of-the-box characters like a sperm donor in 'Vicky Donor' (2012), a man with erectile dysfunction in 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan' (2017) and a youngster coming to terms with his premature baldness in 'Bala'.

Doctor G Story and Trailer
The film follows the struggles of a male doctor who is interested in orthopaedics but instead becomes a gynaecologist, thus leading to chaos. The story revolves around the struggles of a male gynaecologist with the current society, and how women still get uncomfortable dealing with a male gynaecologist. The one character written with depth and lucidity throughout is Uday’s (Ayushmann Khurrana) lively widowed mother played by the formidable Sheeba Chadha who, in this film, tops even the diffident yet ultimately rock-solid Mom.
The movie grossed ₹25.45 crores in India and ₹40.71 crores globally against its ₹35 crores production budget. Despite being a low-budget film, no doubt the box office performance of 'Doctor G' is not too well, but it's also not a box office failure.
