Hate Story, which was released in 2012 started an era of erotic thrillers in Bollywood. The makers then started a franchise of the same movie and released Hate Story 2 and Hate Story 3 in 2014 and 2015. In both the movies, they gave chance to television actors Jai Bhanushali and Karan Singh Grover in lead roles.
Ever since the announcement of Hate Story 4 was made, there were so many speculations about the cast. Finally the speculations on the lead actors in the sequel Hate Story 4 has come to an end. Urvashi Rautela will be the female lead in the movie. She will be romancing TV’s charming and cute boy Karan Wahi, who became a household name after reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi. The actor has worked in various daily soaps and has hosted a number of reality shows. Apart from Urvashi Rautela and Karan Wahi, Punjabi star Ihana Dhillon will also be seen in a central role in the movie.
A source close to Karan Wahi confirmed the news of him playing the male lead in the erotic thriller. As per the sources, shooting of the movie has already started in London. The actor will have love scenes with both the female actresses as the story is based on a love triangle.
Initially Urvashi Rautela had problem with the romantic and steamy scenes and had refused to work in the movie. She asked the director to tone down the intimate scenes. Director Vishal Pandya got her point and assured her that the intimate scenes wil be toned down for her comfort.
When talking to a daily about the story of Hate Story 4, Vishal said, “This installment of Hate Story will be different from the earlier ones in terms of sensuousness and bold content. That’s because it is based on a real incident and we are targeting a very different audience. Erotica will definitely not be the mainstay of the film, but that doesn’t mean we will not be catering to the audiences of the already-established franchise.”
Well, people didn’t like previous movies much and that was just the erotic content, which saved the movies. Now, when the USP of the movie has been toned down, let’s see how people react to this latest installment of Hate Story franchise.
