Pati Patni Aur Woh is a romantic comedy film produced by Renu Ravi Chopra. It is a remake of the 1978 marital comedy Pati Patni Aur Woh. In the new version of the film, Kartik plays the role of Abhinav Tyagi AKA Chintu Tyagi who is not a usual confident casanova but an IIT topper and a government employee.

Bhumi Pednekar plays the role of Vedika, who is a modern-day independent and confident woman, who doesn’t shy away from telling her prospective partner that she likes sex. Ananya Pandey plays the role of Tapasya Singh, a fashion designer from Delhi who wants to set up a leather products manufacturing unit in Kanpur.

On the professional front, Kartik is currently shooting for Anees Bazmee-directorial, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The team of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was in Jaipur last month for a 10-day shoot schedule after which they decided to head to Lucknow to shoot at a palace. As reported earlier, director Anees Bazmee took a lot of time to select the palace and found a suitable one in Lucknow. The shoot in Lucknow will end in mid-April with a few scenes left to be shot in Mumbai.

Apart from Kartik Aaryan, Tabu and Kiara Advani will also feature in the film. Actor Rajpal Yadav, who played the character of Chhota Pandit in the first film, will return to play another comic role in the new film.
