‘Freddy’ has been one of Bollywood’s most talked-about films in the last year, owing to persistent allegations of controversy surrounding the film’s casting, which is led by Kartik Aaryan. All of that was put to rest on Saturday, 31st August when Ekta Kapoor and Jay Shewakrami revealed the project, which would be directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
According to a source, “Freddy is an edge of the seat romantic thriller and the makers are using complex screenplay technique to explore the subject. The entire team, including Kartik, Ekta, and Shashanka feel that the subject is meant for the digital medium as that’s where it will find its audience. In the pandemic times, experimental cinema might not get acceptance from the audience on the big screen.”
Ekta Kapoor is all excited to bring this Romantic Thriller in front of the audience with her first-time collaboration with Kartik Aaryan, as now the film has gone on floors from 1st August. Ekta Kapoor said, “I’m thrilled to have Kartik on board. His choices of subjects have always been unique and this one is no different. I’m excited to take the audience into this dark, delicious world. Collaborating with Jayu makes it even more special.”
Producer Jay Shewakramani informed that “It is the first time I am collaborating with Ekta and Kartik on a film and for it to be on a script like this, makes it all the more exciting! Freddy is a script we worked on incessantly and we can’t wait for Shashanka to bring to life these crazy characters!”
Lead actor Kartik Aaryan, speaking about this new movie says, “As an actor, I crave to explore different facades of entertainment and with Freddy, I’m venturing into an uncharted territory which is both exciting and intriguing in equal measures. I look forward to dwelling in the world of Freddy and bring alive this dark romantic thriller. It also marks my first collaboration with visionary like Ekta Kapoor and creatives forces like Jayu and Shashanka. Couldn’t have asked for a better team on this new journey.”
Director Shashanka Ghosh concludes by further adding that “As a filmmaker, there is a lot to play with the genre, like a thriller. I am more than excited to work with an incredible team on a project as inspiring as Freddy. I am sure that the film is going to be one of the best thrilling cinematic experiences for the audience across the nation.”
