Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan recently announced that he is soon going to start shooting for the Ram Madhvani directorial. “Mooh haath dhoke #Dhamaka shuru karte hai Agle Hafte se,” the 30-year-old actor wrote on Twitter.
Earlier, it was reported that Yami Gautam is going to play the lead role in this intense drama. However, now there is a new update on this front. Gautam isn’t a part of Dhamaka anymore, and the makers have roped in another actress to play the part.
Director Ram Madhvani and producer Ronnie Screwvala have signed Mrunal Thakur to play the leading lady in this much-awaited film. This is the first time that Mrunal and Kartik Aaryan will be paired together.
“Yami’s Dhamaka’s dates were clashing with Bhoot Police which also features Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez, which is why she had to bow out of the former movie. Mrunal plays Kartik’s ex-girlfriend in Dhamaka,” informs a source close to the development.
A major part of the film will be shot at a five-star hotel in Powai and the leading man has already reached the location. “Kartik will start shooting for Dhamaka from December 15. However, he has already stationed himself at the hotel and has started prepping for the film. Mrunal too is expected to join the team in a day or two,” adds the source.
On the work front. Mrunal will next be seen in the Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey and in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Toofan alongside Farhan Akhtar. Kartik too has his hands full with Anees Bazmee’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Collin D’Cunha’s Dostana 2.
