On Friday, Kartik Aaryan’s movie Shehzada was released. His first movie of the year is the film that Rohit Dhawan directed and in which Kriti Sanon also appears. He recently appeared in the thriller Freddy, and his upcoming film Satyaprem Ki Katha, a romantic drama alongside Kiara Advani as the female lead, will be his next movie. In a new interview, the handsome actor recently said he is “playing it safe” with his movie choices.
Manisa Koirala, Ronit Roy, Paresh Rawal, and Ankur Rathee are also featured in Kartik’s Shehzada, which is marketed as a mass entertainer. Freddy and Bhool Bhulaiya 2 were two films that Kartik featured last year.
The actor said he wanted to play it safe when asked if he deliberately chooses to work in serious and entertaining movies. In a conversation with ETimes, he stated, “Maybe, next is serious! Or next is a serious love story. I’m playing safe. I didn’t imagine it to be like this. I mean, there was a thought behind choosing such films. But there was no thought that this film would come after this or this film would come after this. It became like that on its own. But this choice of script was coming to me, and it was a conscious decision to do such films. A mix of a romantic thriller like Freddy, a dark thriller, and then suddenly switching gears to a film as massy as Shehzada.”
In 2022, Kartik released Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, a horror comedy featuring Kiara Advani and Tabu, which was one of the year’s top box-office successes. The movie opened in theatres and made a total worldwide revenue of 266 crores. After that, he released the over-the-top film, Freddy, wherein Kartik portrayed a dentist who killed people mercilessly, pulling out their teeth. Both critics and audiences praised him for both of his pictures.
In Satyaprem Ki Katha, Kartik will again work with Kiara Advani, his co-star from Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. In the movie, he portrays Satyaprem and Kiara Katha. Supriya Pathak and Gajraj Rao play the roles of Kartik’s parents in it. It is scheduled to debut this year sometime around June, and Sameer Vidwans directed it.
