'Dr Arora...' owes existence to Indian Railway, says Imtiaz Ali

New Delhi/UNI: SonyLiv has released the trailer of its upcoming quirky, light-hearted dramedy series ‘Dr Arora-Gupt Rog Visheshagya’.

The show chronicles the life and times of a traveling sex consultant and his various patients.

Set in Central India, the show features the versatile Kumud Mishra in the title role.

Created by Imtiaz Ali, the show is directed by Sajid Ali and Archit Kumar.

Imtiaz Ali said, “'Dr Arora, Gupt Rog Visheshagya' angle, would never be made if there wasn’t the great Indian Railways taking me from Jamshedpur to Delhi and back to the heartland of India several times a year.”

“I realised that the most advertised product or service in those areas was that of local sex doctors. It intrigued me to no end and I sat endlessly at the window seat of those trains wondering what it would be inside the clinics of such doctors, what would it be to have those ailments and live in these small north Indian towns,” said Ali.

“All the intrigue, social awkwardness and humour I have imagined over the years travelling through those towns have been poured into the forthcoming 'Dr Arora...' Special mention to SonyLIV for lapping up this story right at the onset and raising it with love.

"It was the extraordinary talent and effort of the two wonderful directors Sajid Ali and Archit Kumar that could turn this contemporary fantasy into a show of a flavour that I have not experienced either in my work or in other contemporary film or series. I am very eager to see the audience reaction to this one,” he added.

Kumud Mishra commented, “'Dr. Arora...' is a refreshing take on an important issue that demands more and more conversations around it, as that is the only way it can be normalized.”

“The concept is very different from everything that I have done so far. This is my second innings with Imtiaz and SonyLIV and it has been an absolute pleasure. Imtiaz is a genius storyteller, and I can’t wait to see how people receive the show releasing on 22nd July only on SonyLIV,” he added.

Produced by Mohit Choudhary, the show also features Gaurav Parajuli, Vivek Mushran, Ajitesh Gupta, Vidya Malvade, Sandeepa Dhar, and Shekhar Suman.
