Kartik Aaryan's birthday treat to fans arrived gift-wrapped in the form of Shehzada teaser, which released on Tuesday afternoon. Shehzada is a Hindi remake of the 2020 Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, which featured Allu Arjun, Pooja Hegde and Tabu. The teaser opens with Kartik Aaryan saying: "Jab baat family pe aaye toh discussion nahi karte... Action karte hain (When it comes to family, discussion is not what one does, action is)." The text on the screen flashes: "He returns home. Introducing Bantu." The teaser is replete with (some gravity-defying) high-octane action moments. The teaser ends with a montage of Kriti Sanon posing at a beach destination and Kartik Aaryan exclaiming "Wow."
