Earlier, a video of Kartik shedding tears while hugging Imtiaz went viral on social media. In the video, Kartik can be seen sharing a hug with Imtiaz and wiping his tears as they wrapped up their film in Shimla.
Kartik will also be seen in Pati Patni Aur Woh with Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday.
Pati Patni Aur Woh is a remake of a 1978 film with the same title and is being directed by Mudassar Aziz. The film is slated to release on December 6.
Reports suggest that Kartik will be playing the lead in the sequel of Akshay Kumar starrer Bhool Bhulaiya. An earlier report in Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying, “Kartik recently met up with the makers and has really liked the idea. If all goes well, the actor is all set to take the Bhool Bhulaiya franchise forward”.
