Kartik Aaryan, who turns 30 on Sunday, announced a new project called Dhamaka on the occasion. The animated movie poster features Kartik in a brand new hairstyle and a bespectacled look.
Sharing the poster, Kartik wrote: “Aaj mera Birthday hai #DHAMAKA hona chahiye @madhvaniram @amitamadhvani #RonnieScrewvala @rsvpmovies @officialrmfilms @rheaazz @siabhuyan @pashanjal.” He shows a costumed Kartik, looking at a burning bridge in front of him.
The project is led by renowned Ram Madhvani Neerja and is slated for release in 2021. Designer Manish Malhotra commented on the post, “Dhamaka toh you are already. Happy birthday. “One fan responded:” Aapke birthday pe to aapne hi dhamka kar diya! “Another said:” Uff your look! “
The film will be based in Mumbai and is scheduled to premiere in December. This would give an overview of how a news channel works in the 21st century.
Speaking of playing a reporter covering the live broadcast of a terrorist attack in Mumbai, Kartik said, “This is a miracle scenario for me and put me on the edge of my seat throughout the storytelling. I knew this was the script that would give me the opportunity to explore another side of myself as an actor. I can’t wait to transport myself to Ram Sir’s world and see his vision translate to the big screen. It’s also my first time collaborating with Ronnie and RSVP, and I’m looking forward to the trip.
Opening up on the concept of the film, Ram said, “As a director I’m inclined to human stories. Although this one is a thriller to begin with, there is a lot of emotion and drama in the storyline that leads to the adrenaline rush. This film required a young actor, with a certain rawness in space. Kartik, being one of the most talented actors in Bollywood, does the trick.
He admitted that shooting in the middle of a coronavirus pandemic will be a challenge. “But I have tremendous support from my producer, Ronnie Screwvala, and our production teams at RSVP and RMF, are all well versed with the covid protocols. As a director / producer I will abide by the rules set by the government and look forward to getting back to filming.
