The Indian filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj is all set to begin the shoot of his upcoming project “Arjun Ustara,” as he has found the leading male for his movie. Vishal confirmed Kartik Aaryan to play the role of Don Hussain Ustara in the movie.

On Monday, Rahul Raut, the film journalist, took to social media and wrote, “CONFIRMED!! #KartikAaryan and #VishalBhardwaj collaborate for a gritty thriller, produced by #SajidNadiadwala…Kartik to play #HussainUstara, a fearless don who stood against the underworld’s kingpin #DawoodIbrahim.”

Earlier, the movie was titled ‘Sapna Didi,’ and the project was set to begin before the COVID-19 pandemic but was delayed. Also, the male lead was to be played by Irrfan Khan, but the lead had to change as the legend is no longer in the world. The film is expected to mark its release in September 2024. 

“Arjun Ustara” is packed with action and intense drama. According to the makers, the old script of the movie has been twisted so that it suits the image and stardom of Kartik Aaryan. The leading lady of the film has not been finalised yet, as Vishal and Sajid are in the middle of the search. This movie is the first collaboration between Kartik and Vishal. The budget for the film is 150 crore, and it will be shot in Spain and Greece.

Sajid Nadiadwala met the representatives of the government of Spain and made a mutual agreement that the government of Spain would grant them permission and the maker would help boost the tourism of the country. 

Kartik Aaryan has an interesting lineup of movies, including Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3, Chandu Champion, and Aashiqui 3. The actor has wrapped up the first schedule of Anees Bazmee’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 and has begun the second. This film also stars Vidya Balan and Triptii Dimri in pivotal roles. Akshay Kumar is not returning to this franchise.
