The six-month lockdown has left Kartik Aaryan with long hair and preparation time for his next with director Ram Madhvani. Kartik and Ram are teaming up for a thriller which is scheduled to go on the floors in December this year. Although it’s a month-long schedule from start to finish, the production team has been wise enough to keep a 15-day buffer, keeping the pandemic in mind and other unforeseen circumstances. Kartik has been wanting to work with Ram since ‘Neerja’, but his dream has come true only now. Ram in the meantime got busy with web series ‘Aarya’, which is a crime drama starring Sushmita Sen. Kartik was little hesitant in resuming work before the flattening of the Covid-19 curve, but has now agreed to start shooting. His ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ is expected to resume once he finishes this new film.
