The Kannada film Kirik Party featured Rakshit Shetty, Rashmika Mandanna, Samyuktha Hegde, Dhananjay Ranjan, Aravinnd Iyer and Pramod Shetty in pivotal roles. Kirik Party was one of the highest grossing Kannada films. Directed by Rishab Shetty, the film was later remade in Telugu, which was titled Kirrak Party.
Kartik Aaryan, who last featured in the superhit film Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety earlier this year, will soon start shooting for Luka Chuppi. Actress Kriti Sanon is also part of the film directed by Dinesh Vijan. Kartik Aaryan will play the role of a local TV reporter in the film. Dinesh Vijan in an interview to Mumbai Mirror had said: "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. While Kartik is the quintessential good boy every girl wants to take home to mamma."
Kartik Aaryan has reportedly given his nod to Aankhen 2, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan. "Talks with Sushant Singh Rajput and Kartik Aaryan are in the final stages. The rest of the names will be in place soon as well," DNA had earlier reported.
Luka Chuppi is expected to release in March next year while the release date of Aankhen 2 has not been announced yet.
