Kartik Aaryan has made his mark on BTown despite coming from a non-Bollywood background.
Kartik Aaryan who is busy shooting for Satyaprem ki Katha with Kiara Advani also recently announced his upcoming project Aashiqui 3 directed by Anurag Basu.
Even though Kartik Aaryan is now a household name as well as one of the busiest actors of Bollywood, in a recent interview he shared that his journey to stardom was difficult and that he has faced hardships to make a name for himself.
There was a time when people did not even recognize him and only knew him as the ‘monologue guy from Pyaar ka Punchnama’ which ironically is his most famous monologue till date.
Kartik made his debut in 2011 with Pyaar ka Punchnama and was also in the sequel Pyaar ka Punchnama 2 which released in 2015. But it was Sonu ke Titu ki Sweety that released in 2018 which made people recognize him.
In a recent interview with CNN-News18, he shared how he became a well known name only after completing 7 years in the industry. He said, “The journey has been very difficult. Thankfully, I started at 20, so I had a lot of time and it worked to my advantage. But it’s been a journey of ups and downs. For the longest time, people didn’t know my name.
They just knew me as the monologue guy from Pyaar Ka Punchnama. It was Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety which made me a household name. The film came when I had already completed seven years in the industry and people weren’t aware that I exist.”
Kartik Aaryan also gave his two cents on making good content. He stated, “I feel good films are working irrespective of the language. The audience has become smarter and they want to be entertained. They are giving their time and money and they want to watch something good. As part of the industry, it is our responsibility to give them good content. We have many examples of good films that have come out this year and have done well.”
On the work front Kartik will be next seen in SatyaPrem ki Katha with Kiara Advani which is stated to release on June 29th 2023 and Anurag Basu’s Aashiqui 3.
He also has Shehzada, which is the Hindi remake of the Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo; alongside Kriti Sanon. He will also feature in Freddy with Alaya F.
Kartik Aaryan is a crowd favorite currently enjoying the success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and may he keep entertaining us.
