Freddy is coming to Disney+Hotstar this week. Karthik Aryan will be seen in a never seen before avatar in the film. In the film, he plays a dentist who leads a double life. We spoke to J Shevakramani who is one of the producers of Freddy. The producer tells us that he is both excited and nervous about Freddy coming on OTT from December 2, 2022. Talking about Kartik Aaryan, Shevakramani said, “Working with him is a dream. Everything for a film. Working with him is a treat and a pleasure.”

This year, Kartik Aaryan delivered one of the biggest hits for Bollywood with Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The film grossed over Rs 200 crore. Did the makers not feel like releasing it in theatres? There was also some gossip on how it was Kartik Aaryan’s decision to go the OTT route and not the makers. It was even said that Ekta Kapoor was very angry with this. Jai Sewakramani dismisses such things. Laughing he told us, “The thing is we started work on Freddy last year, and always had an OTT release in mind. Yes, after the success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, a lot of people questioned us why not are bringing.” Freddy on the big screen. But the film has been designed for OTT from day one. We never planned to bring it to the big screen.

He says that there was no insistence from Kartik Aaryan’s side and the understanding between Ekta Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan and him is right from day one. He says, “We all have the same understanding. This is just a rumour.

We also asked him whether the current ticket prices have affected the industry. In 2022, even some good Hindi films failed to perform to their potential. Whereas South films have done well. He tells us, “I think people value their time more than money. If they don’t find the trailer exciting, they don’t want to travel to the cinema hall and give their time to the film. I don’t think the price is. Such a big issue.” He added that if people don’t like the trailer then they can be at home with so many entertainment options. Jai Shevakrama said that the task has become difficult to encourage people to come to the hall. He told us, “Look at the massive success of Brahmastra, the trailer wowed people who thronged to the theatres. Ticket prices were the same.”

This is his second film with Alaya F. She said that the actress has grown a lot since her debut film Jawaani Jaaneman. Jai Sevakramani says, “She is a talented actor. In 2021, we saw Kartik Aaryan stun people in Ram Madhvani’s Dhamaka, where he delivered an intense performance. The young superstar is an ace of the genre of comedy films.

Jay Sevakramani tells us, “That was my point. I went to him with Freddy as he does a lot of comedy. I realized that Kartik Aaryan is his bold choice. He is open to working in different genres. ” It seems the actor read the script and agreed to join the board the very next day. The character excited him immensely. “It was a chance to do something different,” says the producer.

Jay Sevakramani said that the trailer has received a great response. He says that the audience is looking forward to see Kartik Aaryan in such a role. “It’s something new and it’s worked,” he says.
