Actor Kartik Aaryan has been working in romantic and comedy films so far. The actor has decided to attempt a new genre now. Kartik, in his latest interaction with the media for his film Love Aaj Kal, announced that he is teaming up with Tanhaji director Om Raut for his next which is an action film. This yet-to-be-titled film is being produced by Bhushan Kumar who has earlier collaborated with Kartik on films like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Pati Patni Aur Woh and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.

While talking to news agency IANS, 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. In his media interaction, Kartik said he had been wanting to work in an action film for a long time but didn’t get anything exciting and when he saw Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior recently, he was blown away by its spectacular vision. The actor said he is a fan of the director’s vision and storytelling style.

Kartik was quoted saying, “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 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 after many guy-next-door movies that he has been a part of.

Meanwhile, Kartik is awaiting the release of Love Aaj Kal with Sara Ali Khan. The film, directed by Imtiaz Ali, hits the screens on February 14 as the big Valentine’s Day release. Kartik has also got Dostana 2 with Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya Lalwani in the pipeline. The actor is also a part of Anees Bazmee’s college drama that features him opposite Disha Patani. However, there’s no new update on the film for a long time now.
