en Bollywood News EXCLUSIVE: Rakul Preet Singh reflects on her tryst visiting a male gynaecologist; says, “As a teenager, I was shy to visit a male gynaecologist”

Rakul Preet speaks on Doctor G and shares her experience of visiting a male gynecologist herself.

Rakul Preet Singh and Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Doctor G was about a male doctor who was eager to go into orthopaedics but ended up becoming a gynaecologist, which leads to chaos. This Anubhuti Kashyap directed film released on October 14, 2022.

EXCLUSIVE: Rakul Preet Singh reflects on her tryst visiting a male gynaecologist; says, “As a teenager, I was shy to visit a male gynaecologist”

Sharing her personal experience of visiting male gynaecologist during the Bollywood Hungama Best Actress Round Table 2022 presented by Astroyogi, Rakul said, “Long ago, the first time I ever went to a gynaecologist, it happened to be male. I had no experience on how or what it would be. I was shy being a teenager. However, I had my mother, so it was fine. Eventually I forgot about it. It was not a thought that stayed on with me. I evolved and grew as a person, and at a certain point I don’t know when my mind adapted to it”.

Further relating her experience with the film, she said, “During Doctor G, I realized that it is actually not the case with so many people. I questioned what was wrong with it, as it is a human anatomy. You would go to an eye surgeon, but not to a male gynaecologist. I think it should be your credibility as a doctor, which should be accounted for more as opposed to the gender you are. I think that is why Doctor G was such an important film to me as for them (male gynaecologists), it is just a physical aspect of your body.”

Highlighting the importance of this matter, Rakul further added, “God forbid, if tomorrow you have to go for a heart check-up or a surgery; you cannot decide if a male would do it for you or a female. Which is why I think it is a conversation that is supposed to start”.


Not everyone has normalized it, as not everyone can be comfortable with a male gynaecologist, to which Rakul replied, “It is because of this reason there are some ethics and rules to appoint female attendance if there is a male gynaecologist treating a female patient”.
