Kartik will essay the role of a star reporter
Talking about the project with Mumbai Mirror, Dinesh revealed the story is set in Mathura and Kartik plays the star reporter of a local TV channel. About Kriti's character, he said that she essays the role of a Mathura girl who goes to New Delhi for further studies and later returns to her hometown.
Kartik-Kriti's fresh-pairing will be the major highlight of 'Luka Chuppi'
"While Kartik is the quintessential good boy every girl wants to take home to her mother, Kriti represents today's youth who advocate gender equality and have their own ideology," Dinesh told the publication.
The film was earlier titled 'Mathura Live'
As the film is based in Mathura, the makers had earlier zeroed down 'Mathura Live' as the title but eventually settled with 'Luka Chuppi'. This is Kriti and Dinesh's second collaboration after 'Raabta' which also starred Sushant Singh Rajput and Jim Sarbh. Dinesh was both the director and the producer of the 2017 film but this time he has donned just the producer's hat.
