Known for his entertainers like No Entry (2005) and Welcome (2007), Anees Bazmee’s next will be a romantic comedy starring the young pair of Kartik Aaryan and Disha Patani. The yet untitled film will be produced under Bhushan Kumar’s banner, T-Series.
“My journey with family-centric comedies has been a blast and now I’m looking forward to this one,” said the director in an official statement.
It was Patani’s performance in the yet-to-be released Salman Khan-starrer Bharat that led to her bagging this role. “I have seen Disha’s work in Bharat which we are producing, she is a good performer. It’s always interesting to present a fresh pairing on screen,” said Kumar.
Disha revealed that she and Aaryan would be playing college students in the film. “In this one I play a girl-next-door who I can easily relate to. The characters are college students and there can be no better co-star than Kartik who is a pro at comedies,” she said.
The actress was last seen with Tiger Shroff in Baaghi 2 (2018). The film became a massive success at the box office.
Kumar added that he likes the way Aaryan slips into his characters effortlessly. Sharing his excitement of signing the film, Aaryan said, “I’m sure it will be a crazy, fun ride, Anees Bazmee style.” The actor's next, Luka Chuppi will be released on 1 March.
Kumar assured that like Bazmee’s previous movies, this one also will provide laughter. “This one is a classic Anees Bazmee style rib-tickler romcom which will have everyone in splits,” he said.
The film will go on the floors in mid-2019 and will be shot in Mumbai and abroad.
