While Kartik will be directed by Tanhaji fame Om Raut, the yet-to-be-titled film is being produced by Bhushan Kumar who has earlier collaborated with the actor in films like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Pati Patni Aur Woh and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The film is being made in 3D and is an action-thriller. The rest of the casting is underway and it is expected to show Kartik in a never-seen-before avatar.

In an interview with IANS earlier, Kartik was heard swooning over Om and shared, “I recently watched Tanhaji… and was completely blown away by not only the spectacular visuals but also the narrative style. Om Raut’s vision when it comes to action storytelling using 3D is unparalleled.” The director said he knew Kartik was the right choice for the film in the most initial stage when he started writing the story. Raut added that Kartik instantly gave his nod and he is thrilled to have him on board.
