Kartik Aaryan is going mass, in a family way. The trailer of his latest Shehzad dropped on Thursday and features Kartik Aaryan stepping into the mighty shoes of star Allu Arjun as he headlines the Hindi adaptation of the much loved Telugu blockbuster Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
The trailer has Kartik pulling all the massive action moves, with some catchy dialogues that will surely appeal to his fans. The trailer summarizes the plot of the film where Kartik’s character finds out that he is actually the son of a multi-millionaire, played by Ronit Roy, and not of a working class man, played by Paresh Rawal. Upon this discovery, he sets out to claim what he believes is rightfully his. The actor’s SS Rajamouli references, action moves and a well-timed dig on nepotism provide its stand-out moments.

Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Allu Arvind and Aman Gill, the film will mark Kartik’s first big screen outing of the year. In 2022, the actor delivered the blockbuster Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which remained one of the biggest hits of the year after The Kashmir Files, Drishyam 2 and Brahmastra.
Apart from Bhool Bhulaiya 2, which also starred Tabu and Kiara Advani, Kartik headlined the thriller Freddy, which was released on Disney Plus Hotstar to mixed reviews. For Shehzad, Kartik has also come on board as one of the producers.
“Like us Kartik too believes in wide reaching films that appeal to the youngsters, families and masses, and Shehzada is meant for all of them, hence it made natural sense for him to pick this film for his debut as a producer,” the makers had said in a statement.
Shehzada also stars Kriti Sanon, Manisha Koirala, Paresh Rawal, Ronit Roy, and Sachin Khedekar. The film is directed by Rohit Dhawan, who returns to direction after Desi Boyz and Dishoom. The film is scheduled to be released in theaters on February 10.
