Actor Kartik Aaryan's action film with director Om Raut has been put on hold as the makers want to shoot the film abroad, which won't be possible for some time amid the coronavirus pandemic. The 3D action film, produced by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series, was to be shot in India and various locations abroad. However, the makers have decided to take up the project at a later date.
"We are doing it (film) later. It is on hold because the film involves a lot of foreign shoot and we can't shoot abroad. The team was to shoot in Hong Kong but it can't happen due to coronavirus. We are figuring out what to do. There were other places also. It is a cutting edge action film," a source close to the film told PTI.
Raut made his directorial debut as director earlier this year with "Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior", starring Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan, and Kajol. The period action film grossed over Rs 350 crore worldwide.
The untitled film with Aaryan was his next Bollywood venture. The team is now making changes in the script as they are still committed to make the action movie. "They both (Aaryan and Raut) are committed to the film. They want to make the film. The team will have to change the script because it is not possible (to shoot in Hong Kong)," the source said.
As per a report published by leading news daily, post the success of War and Super 30, Hrithik Roshan is in talks with several filmmakers. As it turns out, Hrithik Roshan might join hands with Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior director, Om Raut for an untitled flick, as it was recently reported that the actor has given a positive nod to the director. However, the makers of the film have not made any official confirmation yet.
The actor will feature in the much-anticipated sequel to 2008 blockbuster 'Dostana'. Aaryan will also resume shoot for 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2', directed by Anees Bazmee.
