Taran Adarsh tweeted, “Jacqueline Fernandez in the Hindi remake of #Kannada smash hit #KirikParty… Stars Kartik Aaryan in the lead… Produced by Ajay Kapoor, Dheeraj Wadhawan and Vrithika Laykar… Directed by Abhishek Jain.”
The film will be an official Hindi remake of blockbuster 2016 Kannada film Kirik Party. Kirik Party is a college campus romantic comedy film which was remade in Telugu as Kirrak Party this year starring Nikhil Siddharth, Simran Pareenja and Samyuktha Hegde in significant roles.
The untitled film will be produced by Dheeraj Wadhawan, Ajay Kapoor of Kyta Productions and Vrithika Laykar and goes on floors this October.
Kartik Aaryan is one of the most sought-after actors in the Tinsel Town these days. The dashing star made his Bollywood debut with Luv Ranjan’s super-hit film Pyaar Ka Punchnama in 2011. Later he appeared in a film titled Akaash Vani a couple of years later followed in Kaanchi: The Unbreakable in 2014. Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 in 2015 helped him claim his spot at the Box Office. In 2018, his Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety too proved to be a super-hit. He has now been roped in by the makers of Luka Chuppi co-starring Kriti Sanon.
It will be interesting to see Kartik and Jacqueline’s chemistry on screen.
Aaryan went on to play the romantic interest of the lead female characters in Akaash Vani and Kaanchi: The Unbreakable, but the films did not perform well commercially.
