The teaser of Kartik Aaryan’s upcoming film Freddy is out. The over-a-minute teaser opens up with a close-up shot of setting up a vinyl record as Aaryan's titular character paints a toy airplane. Freddy is then shown to be a dentist attending a patient in his clinic. The teaser shows Aaryan’s character traits before showing a dead body being dragged in the bushes by a silhouette. Soon, the happy and pleasant character of Freddy reveals his sinister side as the teaser ends leaving the viewers asking for more.
Commenting on the occasion of trailer release, Aaryan said, "Freddy was a complex script and character, the preparation of the role had to be done physically and mentally as well. The character helped explore a different side of my craft and encouraged me to challenge my abilities at every step as an actor." He further mentioned, "The first time I got the opportunity to explore the dark side of me. I am glad to be a part of Freddy and excited to see the audience reaction for the film."
Freddy is about the journey of Dr. Freddy Ginwala (played by Aaryan) and Kainaaz (played by Alaya F). Dr. Freddy is a dentist by profession with a traumatic past. He loves playing with his miniature planes and the only friend he has is his pet turtle Hardy.
Produced by Balaji Telefilms Ltd, NH Studioz and Northern Lights Films, and directed by Shashanka Ghosh, the film will release on Disney+ Hotstar on December 2.
