The gen-next star of Bollywood-Kartik Aaryan, who enjoyed a phenomenal success with his recent release Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety has kickstarted the shooting of his upcoming film Luka Chuppi today along with co-star Kriti Sanon. The actor shared the news on his Twitter handle by posting a picture from the set and captioned it, “And Luka Chuppi Starts 🎬❤️ Day 1 @kritisanon @Laxman10072 @MaddockFilms #Dineshvijjan #LukaChuppi”. Kriti Sanon also expressed her happiness for the new beginning and shared a message on her social media account.
Talking about the film, the story of this desi rom-com will travel from Mathura to Gwalior and Agra. It is directed by cinematographer Laxman Utekar, who has worked in films like Blue, Dear Zindagi, and English Vinglish. Kartik is playing the character of a star reporter from a local TV channel. On the other hand, Kriti plays a Mathura girl who had gone to Delhi to study and now is back in her hometown.
Talking about the characterization, producer Dinesh Vijan earlier said, “While Kartik is the quintessential good boy every girl wants to take home to mamma, Kriti represents today’s youth who advocate gender equality and have their own ideology.” Kriti is originally from Delhi, Kartik is a Gwalior boy. “The dialogues have a touch of the local dialect and being from the region, both are familiar with the setting and the lingo. This primarily prompted Vijan to get them on board. They also have a crackling chemistry,” he beams. The film is expected to hit the screens next year.
