After being at home for over eight months, Kartik Aaryan started shooting for the Ram Madhvani directed Dhamaka from December in Mumbai. The actor wrapped up the film in a record pace of just 12 days in Mumbai, and soon after, the makers sold the film to OTT giant, Netflix for a direct to digital premiere. Right after the wrap, there were talks of Kartik getting back to complete the pending portions of Dostana 2 and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. However, Pinkvilla has learnt that the shoot of this Anees Bazmee directed horror comedy, produced by Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani, has been pushed to November.

“The Dostana team is working on the logistics at present, and Kartik is expected to complete the film with Janhvi Kapoor by April. Right after, he is expected to shoot for a Shah Rukh Khan production, directed by Ajay Bahl, and then move onto the Rohit Dhawan directed Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo remake, produced by Ekta Kapoor from June,” revealed a source close to the development, adding further that the actor is also in with a top producer for a film to start around September. “It’s in the nascent stage right now, but there is also the Vasan Bala directed superhero film, Phantom under his kitty, which begins later this year,” the source added.

When asked about the reason for constant delay in the shoot of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, the source shared, “The film was first planned to be shot in November last year, however, Kartik was sceptical on travelling outdoors and hence, it was called off. Since then, the makers were trying to take the film on floors in January, however, Tabu, who plays a pivotal role in the film, showed her reservations on shooting the film due to the Covid fear after someone close to her got exposed to the virus.” The source further added, “The actress has informed the team about her decision to shoot only after getting vaccinated. She is expecting even the crew to be vaccinated to avoid the spread of virus. Since there is no clarity on the vaccination drive reaching out to everyone, the team decided to postpone the schedule and chalk out a plan only once the matching dates are available in later half of the year.”

Before Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Kartik would have completed at-least four films – Dostana 2, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo remake, the Ajay Bahl directorial (the makers are in talks with Katrina Kaif to play the female lead) and either of the superhero film or the one he is in talks for with a top producer (from September to November). Kartik is also rumoured to be in talks with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Aanand L Rai for a film each, however, there is nothing that we have heard off in that front till date. Stay tuned for more on Kartik.
