After Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Kartik Aaryan has become the new blue-eyed boy of Bollywood. He may not be into the big league yet, but hes almost there, given the unexpected blockbuster success of this latest release, not to mentioned being his first 100-crore movie. Sure, there was the success of Pyaar Ka Punchnama 1 and 2 befoire, but SKTKS is an altogether different ballgame, and Kartik is the biggest beneficiary from it.

So, its more important now than ever for him to make wise decisions going forward, which will ensure he tips over into that big league pool, and he looks to have taken a step in the right direction to that effect. Kartik has signed on the dotted line of maverick new-age producer Dinesh Vijans (Being Cyrus, Love Aaj Kal, Cocktail, Go Goa Gone, Finding Fanny, Badlapur, Hindi Medium), who has a penchant for bankrolling out-of-the-box, and, at times, groundbreaking hits. Whats more, Kriti Sanon has been roped in by Vijan to star opposite Kartik, making it a fresh pairing to look forward to.

Obviously, the movie will be produced under Vijans Maddock Films. Laxman Utekar, who has previously done the cinematography for films like Dear Zindagi, English Vinglish, and the upcoming 102 Not Out, along with directing two Marathi films, Lalbaagchi Rani and Tapaal, will make his Bollywood directorial debut with the film.
