“I used to travel by local trains and change in the station’s washroom for my auditions” reveals Kartik Aaryan
One debate that will constantly be made in Bollywood, will be about who gets an easier access into the industry – star kids or the outsiders. While the star kids manage to get a bigger launch, the expectations people have on them at times proves to be a curse. Whereas an outsider who is an alien to the film industry strives to get the best with his sheer talent and hard work. In fact, if you look at the past it is mostly the outsiders who have reigned Bollywood, from Amitabh Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan, from Madhuri Dixit to Priyanka Chopra. Kartik Aaryan is one such outsider whose journey can inspire a lot of aspiring actors. In a recent interview, not only did the actor speak about his forthcoming film Guest Iin London, but also about his career and his journey to stardom.
Kartik said that he has no qualms in admitting that he has struggled and has led a typical struggler’s life before his debut film Pyaar Ka Punchnama, “I used to travel by train and change in the washroom for my auditions. It is the story of a typical struggler. They had auditioned about 800 people, so being chosen among them boosted my confidence,” the dashing actor said.
Well, we don’t know if nepotism exists in Bollywood or not, one thing we are sure about is that if the outsiders have the fire in them to make it big and achieve the best, they do indeed! Kartik Aaryan, you can proudly say that you belong to that breed.
