Kartik Aaryan’s Grin-to-Grim Quartet , No Comedy for 2 Years



Kartik aaryan

Bhool Bhulaiya  2  will be Kartik Aaryan’s last comedy for  at least  a year.

Breaking the  glass ceiling has  become a   career  norm  for  Kartik Aaryan. In what can be considered a creative  entrepreneurial  move  the young  star-actor has  gone and signed three new  films which carry  him completely away from the  frothy lighthearted  super-success  of Lukka Chuppi  and Pati Patni Air Woh.

In  Hansal Mehta’s Captain India(being  produced by Ronnie  Screwvala) Kartik will be playing his first real-life character.Though the  real character’s identity is  not being revealed  it is apparently   inspired by one of India’s successful rescue missions from a war-torn country, with Kartik as the pilot who leads the operation and displays exemplary bravery and courage.

Next up, in Ekta Kapoor’s Freddie Kartik gets grim goofy and  eccentric in a role never attempted before.And then comes Satyanarayan  Ki Katha an unusual never-before love  story for which producer  Sajid Nadiadwala wanted  none but Kartik.  Nadiadwala  told me  he couldn’t  see anyone else in the role.

But before these  3 films hit  the screen in 2022-23,  there is Dhamaka, Ram  Madhvani’s adaptation  of a  Korean thriller where again the  actor  drops the grin in favour of the grim.

It is a calculated move away  from the lighthearted image to  that of   a  serious actor.

“Not that comedy is easy. Watch  Kartik’s comic timing in Bhoola Bhulaiya 2. He  will remind the audience of Akshay Kumar in the first   Bhool Bhulaiya film,” says  director Anees Bazmi.
