Kartik Aaryan denies reports that he has been harassed in Bollywood: ‘Award le kar jaa raha hoon’
Kartik Aaryan has stated that he does not like to read rumours about himself, implying that what is written is not always accurate. On the red carpet of the Iconic Gold Awards 2022, the actor was interacting with the media after winning the Iconic Best Actor Of The Year Critics Choice Award for his performance in Dhamaka.
“Read hi nahi karta,” Kartik said with a smile when a paparazzo asked him how he reacts to reading “false articles” about himself. (I just don’t have time to read them.)” He was also asked if he had ever been harassed in Bollywood. “Nahi, aisa kuch nahi hai. Koi pareshan nahi kar raha. (There’s nothing like that. Nobody’s harassing me),” Kartik quipped, adding, “Award le kar jaa raha hoon. (I’m walking away with an award),” he said.
Last year, news of Dharma Productions’ Dostana 2 opposite Janhvi Kapoor sparked speculation about Kartik. In 2019, a sequel to the smash hit film from 2008 was announced. The filming had come to a halt due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, before the production house could resume, word spread that Kartik Aaryan and Karan Johar had a falling out, resulting in the actor’s departure from the film. The reports elicited no response from either party. The development, on the other hand, reignited debates about the alleged ‘camps’ in the film industry.
Kartik Aaryan threatened to walk out of Shehzada, an official Bollywood remake of Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, starring Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde, according to reports. That’s because Kartik expressed his displeasure with the original’s producers considering re-releasing the Telugu film’s Hindi dubbed version in theatres. According to reports, Kartik believed that this would hurt his Shehzada’s box office performance.
Kartik’s behaviour was described as “unprofessional” by the original co-producer, who was preparing to release the Hindi-dubbed version.On both occasions, Kartik has maintained a stoic silence. His most recent film, Dhamaka, directed by Ram Madhvani of Aarya fame, received acclaim for his performance.
