Kartik Aaryan, who delivered one of the biggest blockbusters of 2018 in the form of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, has several exciting projects in his pocket right now. He has just finished shooting for Dinesh Vijan’s forthcoming film Luka Chuppi with Kriti Sanon and will soon start working on the official remake of Kannada blockbuster Kirik Party (2016). There are also reports that he is being considered for ace filmmaker Imtiaz Ali’s next directorial venture.

The latest we hear that Aaryan has given his nod to topline the official remake of cult Hindi film Pati, Patni Aur Woh. The comic-caper, which released in 1978, takes a comical take on the extra-marital affair. While Kartik has come onboard to play the male lead, two actresses who will star opposite him are yet to be locked.

“Kartik loved the script and is excited to be a part of the remake of an iconic film. While the core of the story will remain the same, the makers have contemporised it, so it will appeal to today’s audience. Prep has begun. The team starts shooting from February in Mumbai,” a source close to the production reveals.

Helmed by B.R. Chopra, the original Pati, Patni Aur Woh starred Sanjeev Kumar as the male lead and Vidya Sinha and Ranjeeta as female leads. It is one of the most loved comedy films on the subject of extra-marital affairs.
