Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2

Kartik Aaryan had commenced work on this high-profile horror-comedy before the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic hit India. The team wrapped up a major portion of the film before all shooting activities came to a grinding halt in March 2020. Aaryan resumed filming the Anees Bazmee directorial in February, but the team had to put the shoot on hold again after he tested positive for the coronavirus followed by the second wave of the pandemic.

Satyanarayan Ki Katha

Kartik Aaryan recently added the musical tale of romance, Satyanarayan Ki Katha, to his resume. To be directed by National Award Winner, Sameer Vidwans, the upcoming film will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and reportedly features Shraddha Kapoor as the female lead. “It is a small-town love story with strong influence of music, aiming to go on floors by the end of this year,” a source says.

Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo

The Pyaar Ka Punchnama (2011) star also headlines Ekta Kapoor’s next production, which is said to be the official adaptation of the superhit Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo (2020), originally starring Allu Arjun and Shraddha Kapoor. It has been apparently titled Shehzada. Rohit Dhawan has been tapped to call the shots. The film is set to begin production in September.

Hansal Mehta’s Next

According to reports, Kartik Aaryan has also signed a film with award-winning filmmaker Hansal Mehta. The actor will reportedly play the character of an Air Force Pilot in the film. “Hansal is expected to complete a film before moving on to this real-life story wherein Kartik plays the role of an IAF officer. It is set against the backdrop of a rescue mission,” the same source informs. Bankrolled by Ronnie Screwvala, the film is expected to take off in the first quarter of 2022.
