Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon are going to star in a love story, titled Luka Chuppi, meaning Hide and Seek. The movie is being directed by cinematographer, Laxman Utekar. It is going to begin shooting at the end of the year, and release is set for March 2019. Kartik is going to play a star reporter of local TV channel in the movie. This is the first official project announcement for Kartik since his rise to media spotlight, with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety which became one of the breakout hits of the year, and was highly appreciated by the young audiences across the country.
Kriti Sanon has also become one of the most sought after young actress in the industry, after she gained critical acclaim for her performance in Bareilly Ki Barfi. She is next going to be seen in the epic, Panipat, opposite Arjun Kapoor, and the movie is going to be directed by Aushotosh Gowarikar.
This will be another opportunity for the two budding stars to connect with the younger audiences, and it will also provide another romantic movie to them, as in the age of biopics and action vehicles for stars, smaller love stories are hardly being made. Kartik and Kriti are going to be a fresh couple for the silver screen, and are going to pull more youth into the theaters, and the movie actually has a good content, it could even further than that. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, even though it was a surprise hit, was also slammed for its misogyny and the treatment of female characters. However, Kartik has defended and accepted the flaw of the movie, while acknowledging that it was the point of view of the male character throughout the story. Still, it seems now that he has been branching out from Luv Ranjan’s banner, he could be more open to making movies where female characters have the same level of dignity like the males.
