“It’s role with a touch of the comic and tragic. It’s a very challenging role and Kartik Aaryan will be deep into rehearsals to get into character. It’s a lighthearted but extremely relevant character that would require a long preparation from Kartik Aaryan,” a source informs me.
Kartik is more than up to the task. Of late he has been plunging into parts that require him to delve into his dark unexplored emotional reserves.
Freddy was to be initially directed by Ajay Bahl who has been struggling to put together a project since he completed Section 375. Freddy is now being directed by Shashanka Ghosh who has lately directed the chick flick Veere Di Wedding .But in the past Ghosh has also directed the quirky crime thriller Waisa Bhi Hota Hai Part 2. Ghosh also made the wacky Quick Gun Murugan.It’s the flavor and mood of these early eccentric films that Kartik hopes to recapture with Shashanka Ghosh in Freddy.
