There was a time around a decade or so back when any film that Emraan Hashmi starred in was assured of good music. Aashiq Banaya Aapne, Raaz, Murder and Jannat franchise, Zeher, Aksar, Gangster, Awarapan, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, Awarapan – the list is endless.
Now in the current times, it is Kartik Aaryan who is enjoying the same phase, what with back to back musical chartbusters that he has been enjoying film after film. No wonder, there are huge expectations from the music of his next two films, Pati Patni aur Woh and Imtiaz Ali’s next.
“When it comes to the soundtrack of his films, the makers are also walking an extra mile to ensure that there is good music in there. After all, right from the days of Pyaar Ka Punchnama, he has enjoyed so many popular songs film after film,” says a music aficionado.
The trend has only continued with several chartbuster songs on which Kartik has shaken a leg in films like Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Luka Chuppi. While it was Nushrat Bharucha who featured alongside him in the first two films, Kriti Sanon was his leading lady in the third. Now in his next two films, he has two of the most promising newcomers alongside him, Ananya Panday and Sara Ali Khan.
“Though the songs of Student of the Year 2 covered some distance, they didn’t turn out to be major chartbusters and hence Ananya would be looking at making it big with Kartik in Pati Patni aur Woh. On the other hand Sara Ali Khan has to her credit the biggest song of 2018, ‘Aankh Maare‘ [Simmba]. With Imtiaz Ali directing the duo in their yet untitled film, music is expected to be the highlight, especially since the films belongs to romantic genre,” our source adds.
Ironically, quite a few songs that Kartik has featured in, which emerged as chartbusters, were either recreated, rearranged or remixed versions of some of the most popular songs from the years gone by. While one waits to see what director Mudassar Aziz has in store for Pati Patni aur Woh, Imtiaz Ali is known for mostly bringing original music for his films, and the Kartik-Sara film would be no exception.
As for Kartik, he could well be anticipating his next set of musical hits in time to come.
