Actor Kartik Aaryan, who is freshly coming off success of his recent outing Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, is all set to reunite with Kriti Sanon for his next film Shehzada by Rohit Dhawan. In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, the actor talked about his struggles of gaining recognition and how he learnt everything being an outsider in the film industry.

“I am an outsider in this industry. I did not know anyone here. Whatever I have learnt in this industry, I have learnt by myself, using my understanding. And that has really helped me. I am a quick learner maybe so that has helped me again. So, I kept on grasping things like ‘oh this happens like that.’ Slow and steady, wherever I’ve gotten, I think I’ve never stopped learning and I will never stop learning. So, that has really worked for me.

“And also, because maybe I have had that fear from the start that ‘if I don’t get this this opportunity so maybe I want get another chance or film after that.’ So, I give my best in every film I do, like my last film, or my first one. It has always been like that for me. And I consider myself lucky that the hard work I am doing is all paying off.”

On the work front, Kartik Aaryan will next be seen in Shehzada with Kriti Sanon, the Hindi remake of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. The film, directed by Rohit Dhawan, will be released on February 10, 2023. He also has Captain India, Freddy, and Sajid Nadiadwala's untitled project. He has also signed another film with Sajid Nadiadwala which will be helmed by Kabir Khan.
