Kartik has begun shooting for the film, being helmed by Shashanka Ghosh who last directed Kareena Kapoor-Sonam Kapoor-starrer Veere Di Wedding (2018). Like Veere, Freddy is also produced by Ekta Kapoor.

Earlier, talking about the project, Kartik had said, “As an actor, I crave to explore different facets of entertainment and with Freddy, I’m venturing into an uncharted territory which is both exciting and intriguing in equal measures. I look forward to dwelling in the world of Freddy and bring alive this dark romantic thriller. It also marks my first collaboration with a visionary like Ekta Kapoor and creatives forces like Jayu and Shashanka. Couldn’t have asked for a better team on this new journey.”

Freddy is jointly produced by Balaji Telefilms and Northern Lights Films. It will mark Alaya F’s second film with Ekta Kapoor after the upcoming U Turn remake for which the actor began shooting in July. The original, a 2016 Kannada supernatural thriller, starred Shraddha Srinath in the lead role. It was written, directed and produced by Pawan Kumar, who had also helmed its Telugu-Tamil remake starring Samantha Akkineni.
