The trailer for Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon’s upcoming film, Shehzada is out and we see the actor in a more aggressive avatar. From playing a chocolate boy in several of his previous outings to headlining a macho character in Shehzada, Kartik Aaryan can be seen experimenting with roles off late. Not just that, for Shehzada Kartik Aaryan turned into a producer along with Bhushan Kumar, Allu Arvind and Aman Gill as co-producers of the film.
From the looks of the trailer, it seems to be a full masala entertainer. Here, take a look.
Reportedly, the Bollywood remake of the 2020 Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, which starred Allu Arjun, ran into a financial crisis while in the making, post which Aaryan decided to let go of his fee. The producers were impressed by this gesture of Kartik Aaryan and decided to get him on board as a co-producer of the upcoming film.
According to Indian Express, “It wasn’t planned or anything. It is early days for Kartik to turn producer. He has just started his career as an actor. But then, the unexpected happened. Shehzada encountered a financial crisis and if someone had not stepped in at that moment, the project would have been stalled.”
Slated for a February 2023 release, Bhool Bhulaiya 2 star had shared the first look of the film on his birthday, November 22, as a surprise for his fans. Here’s what he wrote: Jab baat FAMILY pe aaye toh discussion nahi karte… ACTION karte hain!! A Birthday Gift from your #Shehzada 👑
Kartik Aaryan turns producer for Shehzada
While comparisons between Kartik Aaryan and Allu Arjun have already kicked off, fans of the South superstar hailed the latter as the original ‘Bantu’, the lead character from the film. Shehzada sees Aaryan essaying the role of ‘Bantu’ and going by the teaser we must say the Bollywood actor has done a decent job. In fact, the Twitterati is all enthusiastic and wants to see how Aaryan has given an edge to the character played by Allu Arjun whose comic timing and action scenes gave the audience a good dose of thrill and excitement.

Kartik-Kriti are all set to recreate magic on screen again
Shehzada teaser literally teased fans of Kriti Sanon who are waiting to see the diva on screen. The Mimi actor who has a slew of projects under her sleeve is looking stunning to say the least. Both Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon have teamed up for this project after giving a hit in 2019 with Luka Chuppi. Fans of this onscreen pair can’t wait to see the duo create magic with their chemistry.
I’m sure fans of both the actors are desperately waiting for February 10, 2023. Isn’t it? Cheers to the Shehzada team.
