Mumbai, July 23, 2021: Recently, it was reported that Kartik Aaryan will team with director Hansal Mehta and producer Ronnie Screwvala for his next. Now, confirming the project, the makers have released the first look poster of the film titled "Captain India". Kartik will play an Air Force pilot in the film, produced by RSVP and Baweja Studios.
"Captain India" is based on true events and inspired by one of India's successful rescue missions from a war-torn country, with Kartik as the pilot who leads the operation and displays exemplary bravery and courage. Writer and producer Harman Baweja called Captain India 'will resonate with every Indian'.
"Captain India is inspiring and thrilling in equal measure and it gives me great pride and honour to be a part of such a historic chapter of our country. I have immense respect for Hansal Sir's body of work and this was the perfect opportunity to collaborate with him", Kartik said in a statement.
Hansal Mehta added, "Captain India which is inspired by true events will revisit a moment in time where a man goes beyond his own pain and suffering to save thousands. I'm happy to collaborate with Ronnie Screwvala and Harman Baweja on the film and I look forward to working with Kartik".
Ronnie Screwvala said, "Captain India is not just a story of one of the biggest humanitarian operations ever but also about the indomitable human spirit, one that rises above failure despite the odds. Hansal Mehta is one of the finest filmmakers of our time and has always beautifully captured the true essence of humane stories. Kartik Aaryan's fans are surely in for a treat as he steps into all-new territory with 'Captain India'".
Meanwhile, Kartik has multiple projects in the pipeline. He will star in Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment's epic musical romantic love saga - Satyanarayan Ki Katha. He also has Anees Bazmee's "Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2", which will be wrapped up by August this year. And then, he will be doing the Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster Ala Vaikunthapuramaloo while his Netflix movie, Dhamaka is ready for release.
Kartik's movie with Hansal Mehta will only begin after he completes Satyanarayan Ki Katha, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, and Ala Vaikunthapuramaloo remake. While Satyanarayan Ki Katha and Ala Vaikunthapuramaloo are yet to go on floors, Hansal Mehta's film is expected to roll out in the first quarter of 2022.
