Early this year when Allu Arjun arrived with his Telugu biggie Ala Vaikunthapurramloo, the film turned out to be a major blockbuster. A Sankranti release, the film was heavily promoted and its inherently entertaining content coupled with Allu Arjun’s excellent act ensured that kids, youth as well as family audiences embraced it in a big way.
Now Kartik Aaryan could well be gearing up for his most ambitious family entertainer till date, what with confirmation already coming from unofficial sources that the youngster is all set to sign on the dotted line.
“Yes, Kartik is doing the film,” confirms a close associate of the actor, “He has loved the original and when the narration of the Hindi remake was provided to him, he got all the more excited. This is set to be his first true-blue family entertainer catering to all segments of audiences. Ala Vaikunthapurramloo has ample ‘masala’ in there with family drama, romance, action, comedy, everything integrated in there. Moreover, the best part is that Kartik relates to the character quite well. He belongs to the same age group and can’t wait to get going on this.”
On its release, Ala Vaikunthapurramloo turned out to be a major blockbuster, so much so that in Telugu it competed with the collections of none other than Baahubali. Moreover, when it streamed online on the OTT platform, it broke further records.
“Once the lockdown is over, there would be further face to face meetings where the formalities would be drawn down. However, for all practical purposes, Kartik is on board,” further confirmation comes in.
With Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Dostana 2 already lined up for release and Om Raut’s next 3D action entertainer as well as Shahank Khaitan’s next for Karan Johar already signed up, this would be Kartik’s fifth biggie that would go on the floors next. Will it release in 2021 or 2022? Well, we would know soon!
