Kartik Aaryan: The producers of the 1988 film Tezaab were in early talks with Janhvi Kapoor and Ranveer Singh about their participation. It’s interesting to note that the producer of Kabir Singh, Murad Khetani, who bought the remake rights to the movie in 2021, was initially interested in Kartik Aaryan and Shraddha Kapoor. However, it was later discovered that Janhvi-Ranveer would actually play Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor from the original in the remake. But as the saying goes, nothing is truly over until it is. Apparently, the aforementioned movie has undergone yet another casting change. According to the most recent information, Kartik Aaryan appears to have edged Ranveer Singh out for the lead role in the Tezaab remake.
The Tezaab remake’s producers first considered casting Ranveer Singh to play Anil Kapoor in the adaptation, according to a source with knowledge of the situation who spoke to Bollywood Hungama about the casting change. In truth, a few media sources implied that the actor’s selection had already been made. It was not, however, meant to be. The insider says, “Kartik Aaryan had already worked with the producers on Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, and he shares an excellent rapport with them. This is how Kartik came in. Kartik contacted the company after learning about the casting to express his willingness to be involved. The creators of the Tezaab adaptation were more than eager to accommodate the actor given their prior relationship and the fact that the movie did pretty well at the box office.
The insider went on to explain, “Kartik was already in talks with the producers of the Tezaab remake for a different venture,” revealing a minor detail. He conveyed his desire to be in the film during these conversations.
Interestingly, despite conflicting claims about whether Ranveer or Kartik would star in the Tezaab adaptation, a second source with direct knowledge of the situation claimed Singh was never considered. “Ranveer Singh was never really approached by the Tezaab remake’s producers to appear in the movie. It was one of the names mentioned, but little real progress had been made. In essence, he was never contacted for the movie.
For the time being, a formal cast announcement is awaited; in fact, the film’s creators are anticipated to make one shortly. Regarding Tezaab, it was a 1988 action romance movie starring Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit.
