Kartik Aaryan: movies won't find acceptance if there's no content

Kartik Aryan said Monday that content has always been king in movies and that no movie can find acceptance in the absence of a story. Kartik has been on a roll with consecutive hits like 'Lukka Chuppi' and 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety'.

When asked if movies like 'Saand Ki Aankh' have shown that content is king, Kartik said: It always has been (content is king).

Either because of the relatability factor, the content or even if it is fiction, unless there is content, you will not find acceptance. It's the same with 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' or even 'Saand ki Aankh', which I really liked ...

The actor was speaking at the release of the trailer for his next one, 'Pati Patni Aur Woh'.

Directed by Mudassar Aziz, the film is a new version of the 1978 film of the same name. Also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday.

The original film presented Sanjeev Kumar , Vidya Sinha & Ranjeeta Kaur .

"When I was offered 'Pati Patni Aur Woh', I decided I wouldn't watch the original because I wanted to work a certain way in the film. If we were bringing a modern take & a certain newness, I didn't want any influence of the original in my subconscious," he added.

The film is scheduled to premiere on December 6.
