Kartik Aaryan is becoming popular in a family way. The trailer for his latest Shehzada was released on Thursday and features Kartik Aaryan stepping into star Allu Arjun’s mighty shoes as he headlines his Hindi adaptation of the much-loved Telugu blockbuster Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
In the trailer, Kartik pulls out all the massive action moves along with gripping dialogue that will definitely appeal to his fans. The trailer recaps the plot of the film as we learn that the character of Kartik is not actually a working-class man played by Paresh Rawal, but rather the son of a multi-millionaire played by Ronit Roy. Following this discovery, he begins to assert what he believes to be right. The actor’s timely digs at S.S. Rajamouli references, action moves and nepotism provide standout moments.
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Allu Arvind and Aman Gill, the film will mark Kartik’s first big screen outing of the year. In 2022, the actor delivered the blockbuster Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 which remains one of the biggest hits of the year following The Kashmir Files, Drishyam 2 and Brahmastra.
Besides Bhool Bhulaiya 2 starring Tabu and Kiara Advani, Kartik also headlined the thriller Freddy which was released to mixed reviews on Disney Plus Hotstar. For Shehzada, Kartik also joined as one of the producers.
“Kartik, like us, believes in a wide range of films that appeal to young people, families and the public, and Shehzada is for them all, so it was only natural that he chose this film to make his debut as a producer.” said in a statement.
Shehzada also stars Kriti Sanon, Manisha Koirala, Paresh Rawal, Ronit Roy and Sachin Khedekar. The film is directed by Rohit Dhawan, who returned to directing after Desi Boys and Dieum. The film is scheduled for a theatrical release on February 10th.
