Mumbai. Actor Ayushmann Khurrana will soon be going to Prayagraj city to shoot for his upcoming film “Doctor Ji”. While this will be his first time shooting for a film, the actor has an emotional and nostalgic relationship with the city. Ayushmann passed through this town in Uttar Pradesh while he was participating in the hit teen reality TV show ‘Roadies’, which he won in 2004.
Says Ayushmann, “I have always wanted to travel the length and breadth of our beautiful country and luckily my work is taking me to incredibly different destinations. I am shooting for a film in Prayagraj for the first time. Incidentally, when I was participating in ‘Roadies’, I passed through this city and shot for the series.”
Ayushmann says he was mesmerized by the beauty of Prayagraj while shooting for ‘Roadies Season 2’.
Ayushmann says, “I still remember being mesmerized by its history, heritage and architecture. Prayagraj overlooks the confluence of three rivers – Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati – and I was very impressed by its breathtaking beauty. I return to this beautiful city again. And I can. I can’t wait to go back.”
The actor, who made his film debut in 2012 with ‘Vicky Donor’, eventually went on to be a part of both critically and commercially successful films.
He feels that shooting in Prayagraj will be an emotional experience for him.
“It will bring back a deluge of emotions and nostalgia for me. I will try and take out some time to visit the places where I shot for ‘Roadies’ to relive my days of struggle and self-confidence. It would be amazing to shoot in a city that made my fortunes early in my career.”
‘Doctor Ji’ is directed by Anubhuti Kashyap and produced by Junglee Pictures. (IANS)
