Pyaar  Ka Punchnaama  actor Kartik Aaryan hails from Gwalior and has no filmy connections. His delightful monologue on what women want broke the internet, and a star was born.

Kartik is part of the Paresh Rawal comedy Guest In London which opened last week. Is he happy with the progress he has made in his career? Or does Kartik feel pressured because he is an outsider with no Bollywood godfather?

 

Kartik admits it hasn’t been easy. “When I came to Mumbai from Indore I knew nobody. Luckily,  Pyaar  Ka  Punchnaama worked for me. And I can say this that no one turns me away or refuses to meet me. Yes, the doors are open, but what I find on the other side of the door is another matter.” The young actor says he is getting offers from big banners, but the roles are not good enough.  “I can’t grab anything that comes my way just because it’s from a big banner. So far, I’ve done well. In fact, I’ve just bought myself a BMW. For a small town boy, that’s quite a way to go.”

At the moment Kartik’s family from Indore is in Mumbai with him for the release of Guest In London. “Life is tough in Mumbai when you are alone. However, I am getting a chance to pursue my dreams, so I have no reason to complain,” says Kartik. His next release is the rom-com Sonu Ka Titu Ki Sweety, directed by Luv Ranjan who did Pyaar Ka Punchnaama

 

with him. “We’ve already shot most of the film, and it’s being released on November 3. Luv is a director who understands the pulse of young India,” says Kartik.
