EXCLUSIVE: Kartik Aaryan to play Sanjeev Kumar’s role in ‘Pati, Patni Aur Woh’ remake?
It’s raining remakes this year. After Varun Dhawan‘s ‘Coolie No.1‘, his best friend has been locked for another remake. The movie in question is ‘Pati, Patni Aur Woh’ and the actor in question is Kartik Aaryan. According to reports, Mudassar Aziz will be directing the film while BR Productions will bankroll the romcom.
The love triangle will have Kartik stepping into the shoes of Sanjeev Kumar from the original. But the plan is to develop a story in contemporary times. We feel Kartik will be perfect for the role, given his impeccable comic timing and his fantastic reach among the young audiences.
Along with Kartik, there are talks about getting Taapsee Pannu on board as the female lead, who will play his wife. The girl who would be playing his secretary who he has an affair with, still needs to be locked. The film is expected to go on floors around May-June this year after the ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ star finishes his other work commitments. Taapsee’s dates are also being worked out currently because she also has major date dilemma, regarding her next ‘Womaniya’ that starts filming next month.
But Kartik is clearing roaring at the top today. He has films with almost every leading A-list star. After Taapsee and Kriti Sanon, he will also play love interest to Sara Ali Khan in ‘Love Aaj Kal 2’. Will 2019 also be his year? Probably yes!
