Kartik, who has till now played safe with his film choices, having largely worked in rom-coms and social comedies, will now be soon seen in a thriller, his first.
Incidentally, the actor has to wrap up Anees Bazmee’s Bhool Bhulaiyya 2, with Kiara Advani and Tabu in the lead. The film’s shoot has been stalled for the moment. He also has another sequel, Dostana 2, with Janhvi Kapoor, which also needs to be completed.
The list of incomplete projects may be why Kartik has chosen to do a ‘quickie,’ for according to one of our sources, the Ram Madhvani film, which has been planned meticulously, may not take more than a month to shoot. “The makers have kept a buffer of a few more days just to play it safe, but they are rather keen to finish the film quickly and to keep down the costs. Ram’s last work — the web series Aarya starring Sushmita Sen proved that he could handle a thriller rather quickly and in a said period,” adds the source.
