Kartik Aaryan played the role of a journalist in 2019’s Luka Chuppi co-starring Kriti Sanon. Kriti played a journalist again in Arjun Patiala and now according to reports Kartik is all set to wear the hat of a journalist again in Neerja and Aarya helmer Ram Madhvani‘s next.
According to a report by SpotBoyE, a source close to the film was quoted as saying— “The entire film unfolds in one media office. There are only 5-6 characters. It is a very intimate low-budget one-set film and Kartik accepted it because he wants to work with directors who can tap his acting chops, also because he wants to do films far removed from the lightweight comedies he has become typecast in.”
The source also added what the actor told the director when he narrated him the story. It revealed, “When he met Ram, Kartik’s only precondition before signing the film was, ‘I want this film to do for me what your Neerja did for Sonam.”
Kartik Aaryan was last seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal alongside Sara Ali Khan. The actor now has horror-comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 helmed by Anees Bazmee that also features Tabu and Kiara Advani. Apart from this, Kartik also has a film with Tanhaji director Om Raut.
