Actor Kartik Aaryan donned a blazer and flaunted a short haircut with minor facial injuries in his first look from filmmaker Kabir Khan’s upcoming sports biopic Chandu Champion.
Sharing the look on Instagram on Tuesday, Kartik gushed about playing a sportsperson representing India. “When INDIA is written on your chest, it’s a DIFFERENT feeling Proud to be playing a Real Hero. A Man Who Refuses To Give Up. #ChanduChampion #FirstLook,” he wrote alongside the photo.
Though Kabir Khan’s latest project is a sports biopic, the creators are yet to disclose the identity of the sportsperson that serves as the film’s inspiration.
Along with sharing the first look from the film, Kartik also announced that they wrapped up the first schedule of shooting for Chandu Champion. The team will be shooting in London for the next schedule soon, he added.
