No one can forget the charming young guy from Pyaar Ka Punchnama (2011). Yes, that was Kartik Aaryan. The twenty-eight-year-old Gwalior guy is the most talked about celebrity in Bollywood right now and supposedly the next superstar.
Kartik Aaryan was recently seen in the movie Luka Chuppi, and he won us over with his amazing acting chops and an adorable personality that the crowd in every theatre totally related to! He in fact laid low in the movie and Kriti Sanon was the ‘alpha’ who was getting tasks done. And the scene where Kartik is in tears when he leaves his home for a few days, had us laughing our hearts out.
Such is his persona that any and every role just looks absolutely perfectly suited for Kartik Aaryan, and his versatility has impressed us time and again.
Kartik had a very struggle-prone past. He left his hometown and settled in Mumbai and struggled for three years before getting featured in the 2011 buddy film, Pyaar Ka Punchnama. The movie was a commercial success and established Kartik Aaryan as a fresh talent for the industry and made his monologue one of the most memorable ones in Bollywood till date. However, his films Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015) and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018), though being commercially successful, faced criticism for their misogynistic themes.
He has also appeared in a small, but highly credential role in Akaash Vani (2013). His movie Luka Chupi (2019) is among the highest grossing movies of the year.
It is, however in Kartik’s charming personality, and ability to adapt to the roles he chooses, that makes him one of the best actors. Surely, in the coming years, we hope to see more from the youngster, as an established superstar of cinema.
