Rumours were buzzing that actors Kartik Aaryan and Jacqueline Fernandez will be headlining the Kirik Party remake of the Kannada film. Moreover, it was also said the makers of the film have bought the rights but since then, there has been no development on the project. Now, during an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, Rakshit revealed that they bought the rights five years ago.

Rakshit exclusively told us, “It was happening but it’s been five years, more than five years since Kirik Party was released. It (the rights) was bought then so I don’t know why they are not making it. I wish they made it so that when I make Kirik Party 2 probably people would have watched it.”


The 777 Charlie actor even revealed that he thought the Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 actor is a good option and was happy to see the makers approaching him for the role in the film.

Rakshit further said, “I think Kartik Aaryan was a very good option you know I was very happy when Kartik Aaryan was approached but for the female lead, I thought they should go for a newcomer because the idea of Kirik Party one was other than my character, I wanted every character to be a new face because it should be people should be travelling with me inside the college and when you go inside of college every face is a new face.”

Rakshit Shetty is now gearing up to release his upcoming movie, 777 Charlie which is touted to be a pan-India film. The movie has been dubbed in several languages including Hindi. Interestingly, Rakshit himself has dubbed the Hindi version of the film. 777 Charlie is set to release on June 10 in the theatres.
