Kartik Aaryan is currently one of the most loved and well-known young actors in the Bollywood industry. The actor started the career with Pyar Ka Panchnama which was a hit. The film also gave him a huge fanbase to look forward to. Later, he starred in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety as lead and it became a super hit on the Box-Office.
Kartik Aryan was a Biotechnology engineering student and had planned to pursue a career in the same if acting career didn't work out. In an interview, he recalls going for his B.Tech exams. "After PKP, when I was shooting for its sequel (PKP 2), you won't believe but I was taking my B.Tech exams and I remember students clicking photographs with me while we were writing our exam," said Kartik, in a light tone.
Kartik also said that he didn't tell his parents about his Bollywood struggles till he bagged Pyar Ka Panchnama.
"As soon as my mother got to know that I was serious about acting and behind their back, I was struggling to get into acting, she was so, so supportive. By that time, I had already struggled my way to get Pyaar Ka Punchnama and I told them after that."
The actor recalls it wasn't easy for him to tell his mother about his dream. "I was actually crying on the phone and on hearing me, she also started to cry. I got sad that I didn't share this thing with my mom, as this was the biggest thing that happened in my life and I wanted to share it with my loved ones."
"She even said that ‘you were struggling for all this while, why didn’t you tell us?’ Only I know that I was scared to tell my parents about my dream. I come from a small town middle class family and for them to understand that thing to go to Mumbai and make a career in the Hindi film industry is a huge deal. The chances are like 0.1% to make it big there. So, I never told them [about what I was doing], but when I did, they stood by my decision and never complained," says Kartik.
His mother, however, had a condition — that he completes his studies. "She wanted me to have that degree. You can say that aaj main padha likha sirf unhi ki wajah se hu," shares Kartik, adding that once he embarked on the Bollywood journey, his mother got excited to know what happens in the industry and how it functions.
Kartik Aryan has won hearts of the youth and is surely making big in the Industry.
