After Aparshakti Khurana, critically acclaimed actor Pankaj Tripathi has come on-board for Kartik Aaryan-Kriti Sanon starrer Luka Chuppi. Tripathi will be seen playing an estate agent from Mathura in the rom-com.
"My character is a man with a different sense of humour and whenever the story gets too complicated, he has some contribution to make," Tripathi said in a statement. "So far, the audience has only seen me playing simple, sober and desi characters. This time you will see me wearing colourful clothes and I even have highlighted in my hair," he added.
Producer Dinesh Vijan said Tripathi has an "endearing and ridiculous sense of humour" which was perfect for the film. "In Luka Chuppi he plays an estate agent from Mathura who owns an agency called Baby Doll, which is right opposite a sari shop because he is a bachelor looking for his life partner," Vijan added.
Tripathi is reuniting with his on-screen daughter from Bareilly Ki Barfi, Kriti, and said he shares a great bond with the actor. Directed by Laxman Utekar, the shooting of the film has kick-started in Kartik's hometown Gwalior and the Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety actor is quite excited about it.
