Kartik Aaryan to star in Tanhaji director's next 3D action film
The baby-faced heartthrob has been on the rise since Sara Ali Khan's famous confession on "Koffee With Karan".
We are truly living in the Kartik Aryan-aissance. Following the massive buzz around Love Aaj Kal (2020) and Bhool Bhulaiya 2, Kartik Aryan has signed another big banner Bollywood film.
The chocolate boy is all set to star in a 3D action flick directed by Om Raut of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior fame. Kartik, who has been part of several hit romantic-comedies, is all excited about doing some high octane action in the forthcoming movie.
"I’ve been keen to do an out and out action film for a while, and Bhushan sir knew about it. I recently watched 'Tanhaji..' and was completely blown away by not only the spectacular visuals but also the narrative.
"Om Raut's vision when it comes to action storytelling using 3D is unparalleled. I’m super excited to be a part of his next film and can’t wait to start work on my first action movie," Kartik said in a statement.
According to the press release issued by the makers, the yet-untitled film will be shot in India and various locations abroad. The female lead and the remaining cast are yet to be finalised.
"With the script Om has written, Kartik fits the role to the T. It’s Om’s vision and passion for cinema which I saw with 'Tanhaji..' which made me want to back his next as well. This will be T-Series’ first with this kind of a movie which will be a fast paced action film on a heist," Bhushan said.
A tricky situation to deal with - recreating the Sandhan Valley on the sets of #TanhajiTheUnsungWarrior. Watch how the team re-created Maharashtra’s Grand Canyon!

"Bhushan ji supports my vision to create my next. In the initial stages of the script itself I knew Kartik would fit the character well and I am glad to have him on board," Raut said.
This will mark the continuation of Kartik's partnership with Bhushan and T-Series as well, with their previous offerings like "Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety", and "Pati Patni Aur Woh" doing impressively well in the box office.
Kartik has been the talk fo the tinsel town since the day Sara Ali Khan expressed her interest in him on the chat show "Koffee With Karan". Several link-ups and hits later, the "cute" actor seems to be well on his way to the A-list.
