Kartik Aaryan to romance Kriti Sanon in Luka Chuppi

February-March 2019, Kartik is hoping to bring the crowds back to the theatres with another love story, with a generous dose of small town humour

Mumbai: After the success of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Kartik Aaryan has turned out to be the gen-next star of Bollywood. The actor has now signed a new film opposite Heropanti actress Kriti Sanon titled Luka Chuppi. The desi rom-com will travel from Mathura to Gwalior and Agra. It will be directed by cinematographer Laxman Utekar, who has worked in films like Blue, Dear Zindagi and English Vinglish.

February-March 2019, Kartik is hoping to bring the crowds back to the theatres with another love story, with a generous dose of small-town humour. Produced by Dinesh Vijan, Luka Chuppi features Kartik and Kriti Sanon and will roll in August this year.

“Kartik plays the star reporter of a local TV channel in Mathura. We had toyed with the title Mathura Live before settling for a game of hide-and-seek,” shares Dinesh, adding that the story travels from Mathura to Gwalior and Agra.

Kriti plays a Mathura girl who had gone to Delhi to study and now is back in her hometown. “While Kartik is the quintessential good boy every girl wants to take home to mamma, Kriti represents today’s youth who advocate gender equality and have their own ideology,” informs the filmmaker who recently wrapped up another romcom with the actress, Arjun Patiala, also featuring Diljit Dosanjh and Varun Sharma.

Dinesh’s choice of actors was prompted by the fact that while Kriti is originally from Delhi, Kartik is a Gwalior boy. “The dialogues have a touch of the local dialect and being from the region, both are familiar with the setting and the lingo. They also have a crackling chemistry,” he beams.

The film will go on floors in August this year and is expected to release in 2019. The film marks the Bollywood directorial debut of Laxman Utekar, who has directed Marathi films like Lalbaugchi Rani and Tapaal.
