    The actor bagged his first silver screen role when he was in his third year of college; the film co-starred Divyendu Sharma, Raayo S Bakhirta, and Nushrat Bharucha, which revolved around the romantic tribulations faced by three young men and how their life turns upside down when they start dating three dominating women.

    Only a few know that the actor, due to financial constraints back then, lived in an apartment with 12 other aspiring actors in Navi Mumbai. Kartik Aaryan also accepted that he used to travel all the way to Mumbai daily by local trains to audition for the roles. It was until Luv Ranjan found the talent in him. He also said that the four-minute monologue in Pyaar Ka Punchnaama was one of the lengthiest single shots done for a Hindi film to that point.

    The actor kept on getting films with similar genres, and two years later, Kartik Aaryan went on to play the romantic interest of the lead female characters in Akaash Vani (2013) and Kaanchi: The Unbreakable (2014), but the films did not perform well commercially.

    Once again, in 2015, Kartik Aaryan collaborated with Luv Ranjan and Nushrat Bharucha for two more rom-coms, Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015) and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018), both of which were box-office hits. The latter emerged as one of the highest-grossing Indian films of 2018 and proved to be a breakthrough for the actor.

    Kartik Aaryan's journey so far has been good enough in the world of showbiz. After giving the audience a blockbuster hit with Luka Chuppi, a romantic comedy set in Gwalior and Mathura, opposite Kriti Sanon, which also marked Laxman Utekar's first Hindi-language directorial, gained him a lot of appreciation. He will soon be seen alongside Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday in a remake of the 1978 film Pati Patni Aur Woh.

    While talking about the success and love he has received from the audience, Kartik Aaryan said in an interview: "I was shooting for 'Luka Chuppi' in my hometown Gwalior that time. I felt like life has come to the full circle because that's where I dreamt of becoming an actor. The kind of reaction and love people of Gwalior showered upon me while shooting for the film was out of this world. It feels really happy to shoot for a film in your own hometown."

    Sharing his journey so far in Bollywood, Kartik Aaryan wishes to break the monotony about the characters he has played until now. The actor said in an interview: "I feel comedy is the most difficult thing to do. I feel happy when people enjoy my work. I like thrillers and the anti-hero zone. I love watching them. I would like to do something in this, other than comedy."

    He has also been roped in for the popular character of a ghostbuster played by Akshay Kumar in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Kartik Aaryan was elated to be a part of a horror-comedy. In an interview with mid-day, the actor said how fun it was to shoot for the first look. "Bhool Bhulaiyaa has been one of my favourite horror comedies. Being part of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 makes me happy, especially because I've been a big fan of Akshay Kumar sir. It's a big responsibility to take his franchise forward."

    While the first instalment was directed by Priyadarshan, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 will be helmed by Anees Bazmee. The film will be written by Farhad Samji and Akash Kaushik. "It reinvents the premise of the first film and is a fresh take on the genre. It talks about how society is blinded by superstitions in a humorous manner," Kartik Aaryan concluded.

  • 15/16

    Bhool Bhulaiyaa revolved around a couple, essayed by Vidya Balan and Shiney Ahuja, who move to their ancestral palace. Chatter about the palace being haunted gains credence when mysterious occurrences take place. The movie — a remake of Rajinikanth's Chandramukhi (2005), which was inspired by the Malayalam film Manichitrathazhu — smartly tackled superstitions while shining a spotlight on mental disorders.

    We wish the actor good luck for his upcoming romantic-drama Love Aaj Kal, directed by Imtiaz Ali.
