Aur kyunki film kisi crisis se jhunjh rahi thi, they needed somebody to step up. So, I asked my producer that I’ll give up my money for the film and that is how this whole production thing and me becoming a co-producer on the film, woh pura credit wahan se aaya hai.” ALSO READ: OMG!

When asked if he returned all his fees, Kartik said almost. He further added, “Ek tarike se film pe bhi bhaar bahut kam ho gaya, also yeh film jab sign ki thi tab, I think Bhool Bhulaiyaa bhi sign nahi thi. So dono film hand-in-hand chal rahi thi. Toh iska almost budget, thankfully, itna extravagant nahi tha, but because actioner hai, thode se action sequences hai toh usmein budget lagta hai. And there were certain issues jo, we were facing at one point, jiski wajah se woh mujhe give up karna pada. We are in a good spot, good situation right now.”
For the unversed, directed by Rohit Dhawan, Shehzada is the official Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo (2020), which starred Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde in lead roles.
