Since then, the actor-singer has taken the fans and the big screen by storm with his unique and fun films that leave the audience wanting more. Now, Khurrana is gearing up for the release of his new film, Doctor G, where he takes on the role of a male gynaecologist in a world where this job is normally taken on by a woman.
