In an interview with Times of India, Rakul gushed about the project. "I’m super excited to be a part of Doctor G. There are many firsts in this film for me, starting with my co-star Ayushmann. I am thankful to Junglee Pictures and director Anubhuti Kashyap for bringing us together. I was in love with the script from the time I heard it. It’s an interesting story, revolving around the medical profession and set in a campus. It will provide a new perspective to the audience. I can’t wait to start shooting for the film," she said.
Rakul also said that she will be playing Ayushmann Khurrana's senior. The film will be based in a campus of a medical institute. The film will see the pairing of Ayushmann and Rakul for the first time.
