Kartik Aaryan has truly made his mark in the top league after various hits and blockbusters at the box office. From the monologue boy after Pyaar Ka Punchnama to Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, he really stepped his way up to superstardom through the support of his fans. Where his life comes as a big inspiration for many, he shares how the small elements in his life from enjoying the same meal to his zest for achieving his dreams are the same, even after such success in his self-made career.
Having his roots from a small town in Gwalior, Kartik is a superstar whose growth is truly influential. While the actor has come a long way in the glamour world, he still has his foot grounded in his roots. Talking about the relatability factor of his life before the success and post the success, Kartik shared in an interview with Film Companion, “Of course, I had a dream, there’s a dream car I want a Lamborghini, and it has come into my life. I want to become an actor, I have reached here, I am getting films. Of course, your dreams come and go, but then my dreams are getting bigger.”
Host Anupama Chopra asked, “Private jet I hear?” To which Kartik replied, “Private jet bhi aana chahiye. It’s all relative. I want to be more successful and go to super success. It doesn’t stop, but the relatability factor is that I like the same food. If I go to the same hotel with mom and dad, we’ll eat the same food in Gwalior, we’ll eat the same paneer and naan and that’s not going to change. I don’t have to prove that I come from Gwalior, and that I’m relatable. I don’t need to do anything. I talk the same way as I always have. The core doesn’t change. These are all materialistic things.” When it was pointed out to him that relatability might become an issue if he actually buys a private jet, Kartik paused for a moment, and asked, “Sapne dekhna bhi chhod dunga kya (Shall I stop dreaming now)?.”
He further added, “The way I interact or the way I have been interacting is the same like before even now, even my lifestyle has been the same. So that’s about it and I never question that relatability factor. That will always be there.”
“There was a problem with the car door. I took it specifically because I was still taking an auto to the red carpet, or going on a bike, or getting a lift from people. So, in this car, the door didn’t open. I didn’t know what set-up that was, I couldn’t open it. There was also a leakage when it rained on the driver’s seat, but I got used to it.” Kartik Aaryan has often spoken about how he came to Mumbai on the pretext of studies, while he actually wanted to act. Kartik, who has now been in the industry for just over a decade, is now the proud owner of India’s first McLaren GT.
The car, worth Rs 4.7 crore (ex-showroom), was gifted to him by producer and T-Series chairperson Bhushan Kumar following the success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Moreover, in April this year, Kartik bought himself a Lamborghini Urus, worth Rs 4.5 crore.
On the work front, Kartik Aaryan will be seen in Shehzada, Freddy, Captain India, Sajid Nadiadwala’s Satyaprem Ki Katha, and Kabir Khan’s untitled next.
