Kartik Aaryan has been Bollywood’s golden boy for a while now. The actor first shot to virality following the release of Pyaar ka Punchnama but appeared to vanish off the radar after that. However, he made an uber-successful comeback with Pyaar ka Punchnama 2 and there was no looking back after that. Since then, he’s done movies that have been critically panned but have earned big bucks at the box office.
His next release, titled Dhamaka, is directed by Ram Madhvani and is being touted as an intense drama. The film’s shooting wrapped up in a record 10 days. According to media reports, Kartik Aaryan and team were shooting for the film at a hotel in Mumbai’s Powai and most of the film was wrapped up there itself. Not only was the speed essential due to the COVID-19 crisis facing the world but also because it proved to be incredibly cost-effective at a time when all industries have taken a major hit due to the pandemic.
Now, Filmfare reports that Dhamaka has been sold to streaming giant, Netflix for a whopping Rs 85 crores. “Dhamaka is one of the most awaited films of Kartik Aaryan in 2021 and the makers are looking forward to unveiling it as soon as possible. As of now the tentative release date for Dhamaka is said to be June. Final paperwork between the production house and the OTT giant is expected to be done in a few days,” a source told an online portal as per Filmfare.
Kartik Aaryan was reportedly paid Rs 20 crores for his starring role in Dhamaka. The actor is also set to resume shooting for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Dostana 2. Bhool Bhulaiyaa first starred Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan and was a massive hit. Dostana was a cultural phenom when it released and starred Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead roles.
