Kartik Aaryan to star in Ram Madhvani's Dhamaka
Kartik Aaryan will play a journalist who covers the live broadcast of a terror attack in Mumbai
Kartik Aaryan is set to join hands with filmmaker Ram Madhvani for an upcoming thriller, titled Dhamaka.
The film, which will be produced by Ronnie Screwvala's RSVP and Ram Madhvani Films with Co-Producer Amita Madhvani, gives a bird's eye view into the working of a news channel in the 21st century.
Kartik Aaryan will play a journalist who covers the live broadcast of a terror attack in Mumbai. "This, for me, is a miracle script and had me on the edge of my seat all through the narration. I knew this is the script that would give me the opportunity to explore a different side as an actor," says the actor.
He cannot wait to transport himself into Madhvani's world and see his vision translated on the big screen, Kartik adds. "This is also the first time I am collaborating with Ronnie and RSVP and I am looking forward to this journey."
As someone who is inclined towards human stories, Ram Madhvani says, "Though this one is a thriller at the outset, there lies a lot of emotion and drama in the screenplay that leads to the adrenaline rush. This film demanded a young actor with a certain amount of rawness in the space. Kartik, being one of the most talented actors in Bollywood, fits the bill."
Talking about the challenges in shooting for the film during the pandemic, Madhvani says, "I have a terrific backing from my producer, Ronnie Screwvala, and our production teams at RSVP and RMF, are all well-versed with the Covid protocols. As a director/producer, I will be abiding by the rules laid down by the government and am eager to get back to filming."
Dhamaka is all set to go on floors this December. It will be shot with the entire cast and crew creating a Covid bubble.
Ronnie Screwvala says, "I am thrilled to collaborate with Ram and Kartik, and can think of nothing better than this particular subject for us to come together for the first time. When Ram came to me with the script, I knew that I couldn't miss out on this one, and we got a similar reaction while narrating the script to Kartik as well."
