Kartik Aaryan has gone from being classic to romantic in two years.
Kartik Aaryan He seems to be addressing Monday's blues better than most people, while addressing the director of 'Love Aaj Kal' Imtiaz Ali Lokhandwala's office. Accommodating coffee in one hand and a cookie in the other, the actor points out that he was a bro-mantic actor (with Luv Ranjan Pyaar Ka Punchnama 'series and' Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety ') who becomes romantic for the first time with Imtiaz's next. I'm lucky to have started my career with Luv Ranjan Mr. I have also worked with Laxman Utekar and Mudassar Aziz. It has been a journey to learn different things from different people, share, and add, Imtiaz Sir is a special filmmaker; It changed my thinking process as an actor.
The last exit of Imtiaz, the SRK and the protagonist of Anushka Sharma 'Jab Harry Met Sejal', sank into the box office. When asked if that made him do a double take before signing 'Love Aaj Kal', Kartik said the thought never crossed his mind. He doesn't make movies for the box office. As a long time Imtiaz fan, I want to work with him again and again. He is a passionate and unfiltered narrator, ”says the actor.
The launch of Valentine's Day of the duo takes place in two ages 1990 and 2020 with Kartik playing Raghu and Veer respectively. To prepare for the turn of the 90s, he watched movies like 'Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak', 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun' and ' Maine Pyar Kiya '. “In fact, my introduction scene is set to Salman Khan sir’s song from 'Maine Pyar Kiya'. I also revisited a lot of Shah Rukh Khan sir’s films, ”Kartik reveals.
To obtain the correct physicality, the actor received training in body language. “The challenge was to break the off-camera rhythm of my body. We work on everything, from the way Raghu blinks, to the way he smiles, talks and walks, ”he said.
Calling him an important film in his career, Kartik said: “This is the first time that I am exploring an intense character. Show versatility. I'm a romantic at heart, so the journey to bagging a movie like this was great. Buzz is that he and Imtiaz are in talks for another movie that matches it with Deepika Padukone . That's something you should ask him, Kartik smiles. Following is the sequel to the 2007 horror comedy by Akshay Kumar Bhool Bhulaiyaa '. Kartik confirms that he will resume work by the end of the month. It is a new movie for me. No one can fill those Akshay shoes. I hope to live up to expectations, ”he adds.
The success of 'Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety' (2018), changed the course of Kartik's career. He followed him with 'Luka Chuppi' and 'Pati Patni Aur Woh', which made him a bankable actor. Hopefully, he will continue with 'Love Aaj Kal', he smiles, and adds: I wanted an opportunity to show my talent and it was after Sonu that I began to choose scripts to choose from. Now, the producers trust that I can carry a film on my shoulders. I think I'm on the right track and I choose scripts that the audience wants to see.
He goes on to reveal that till last year, he wasn't in a position to choose scripts. “I was giving auditions even after the success of 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2'. I wouldn't even find out who was the director I was auditioning for. After 'Sonu' and 'Luka Chuppi', I have started getting a lot of offers. I believe, there is still some time to evolve, ”he avers, adding that now, he wants to do an action film, a thriller and play a negative role.
