Starring Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh in the lead, SKTKS is Luv Ranjan’s fifth directorial venture. STSKS’s run at the Bollywood is an instance enough that audience doesn’t rely on reviews and have a liking of their own. The film was thrashed by critics and was dismissed to be another ordinary tale. But, the film has defied all odds giving a stiff competition to releases like Padman, Pari and Hate Story IV.
