The teaser of Kartik Aaryan’s upcoming film Shehzada has been released today, much to the delight of massive his fan following. The reactions have so far been mixed, with comparisions being drawn to Allu Arjun’s original. Shehzada is an action drama, which is directed by Varun Dhawan’s elder brother Rohit Dhawan. The storyline is loosely based on the Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. Along with Aaryan, the cast features Kriti Sanon, Paresh Rawal, Ronit Roy, Sachin Khedekar, and Manisha Koirala. The movie has been scheduled for release on February 10, 2023.
The initial plan was to release the film in November this year, but due to issues with the production house, it got delayed by a few months. After being announced on October 12, 2022, the shoot of the film commenced in Mumbai. A schedule was reportedly shot in Delhi as well, about which Aaryan had also posted on his social media. The movie was wrapped-up after a final shoot in Mauritius.
Aaryan currently has his hands full, and has been gearing up for the release of his film Freddy, which will start streaming on Disney+Hotstar on December 2, 2022. The actor plays the role of a doctor, whose personality seems to bear shades of dark, as seen in the trailer. In an interview, his co-star Alaya F averred that ‘Aaryan is full of energy’. “Working with Kartik was not only a wonderful experience overall, but I think I also learned a lot from him. He has such energy and enthusiasm for the films he does. He’s so driven and so hard-working that it sets a really high benchmark. Seeing him work and working with him validated my core belief, that if you’re obsessed with your work and if you consistently work hard, nothing can stop you from achieving everything you want and more,” she added.
While the actor himself feels that the character of Freddy is not a conventional Bollywood hero. Through this role, Aaryan has explored a different side of his craft and challenged his abilities as an actor.
He further added that it is a dark thriller and is gripping. That said, the movie will surely leave people on the edge of their seats. Are you excited about this one?
