After the runaway success of ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ (2018), Kartik Aaryan has become everybody’s favourite in Bollywood. There is a long list of filmmakers who want to cast him in their next projects, but the actor is taking it slow and is not in any hurry.
His latest outing ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ entered the coveted Rs. 100 crore club, leaving behind biggies like ‘Pad Man’ (2018), ‘Pari’ (2018) and ‘Raid’ (2018). Even before ‘SKTKS’ came around, Karthik was a star in his own right, thanks to the massive success of his romcoms ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ (2011) and ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2’ (2015). The latest we hear that the handsome star has been approached to star in producer Dinesh Vijan’s next. Interestingly, the movie may also star Kriti Sanon. If the news is true, it will be the first outing of the duo.
The untitled film will be produced under the banner of Maddock Films. Laxman Utekar will call the shots for the movie. Utekar is an ace cinematographer who has lensed many mega-budgeted movies like ‘Dear Zindagi’ (2016), ‘English Vinglish’ (2012), ‘102 Not Out’ (2018) and ‘Hindi Medium’ (2017). Besides cinematographing these biggies, he has also directed two award-winning Marathi movies, ‘Lalbaagchi Rani’ (2016) and ‘Tapaal’ (2013).
An official announcement is awaited.
