Kartik Aaryan’s Next Is Titled Freddy; Deets Inside - EXCLUSIVE
If you want to check out an A-lister’s  popularity, see how many title roles he is playing. Rajesh Khanna did Anand and Bawarchi to feel the full force of his stardom. Now Kartik Aaryan is playing Freddy, the title role in director Ajay Bahl’s film which the actor will commence shooting in mid-2021 after finishing Ram Madhvani’s thriller.

Says a source close to the development, “In Freddy, Kartik will play a character unlike any he has played so far. Ajay wanted someone with a sense of mischief and mystery. Kartik fitted the bill.”

Kartik will go through rigorous workshops to get his body language and diction right for  Freddy.

“He will be nothing like Kartik Aaryan when he is ready to play Freddy,” promises  the source close to the development.

Kartik Aryan will start shooting for director Ajay Bahl’s social comedy Freddy in June 2021. The  film to be produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies would feature Kartik in a never-before avatar. Kartik who has a jam packed year ahead  agreed to squeeze in one more project because he couldn’t resist it.

“Ajay Bahl who has made films  on  bold  unexplored  themes  in  BA Pass  and Section 375, has a very unusual role for Kartik. It's a lighthearted  but extremely relevant  character that would require  a long preparation from Kartik. But the actor is  up to the task. He will  first finish his film with  Ram Madhvani which starts  shooting in  December,  then  complete Priyadarshan’s  Bhool  Bhulaiya  and Karan  Johar’s Dostana  2 and then  go on  to Ajay Behl’s film  which starts shooting in  June 2021,”says an informed source.

Last  year  Kartik  tried  something different  in  Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal   , but failed miserably. He  has since then been  looking for roles that  would challenge him  as an actor.
