An Instagram user takes a dig at Kartik Aaryan; the actor hits back with a befitting reply
Kartik Aaryan is one of the most talked-about actors in Bollywood right now. He has a sea of female fans who adore him immensely. His personal life is also quite a hot topic. But, despite all this, the ‘Love Aaj Kal’ actor gets trolled quite a lot on social media. While, Kartik is never seen paying heed to trolls, this time he made sure to let them know that he is watching.
A meme account on Instagram that goes by the name ‘Freddy-birdy’, posted a question that read, “Someone explain Kartik Aaryan to me please.”
Looks like Kartik decided to introduce himself in case someone didn’t know him well. The actor replied, “Just another guy following his dream, trying to make it big, working hard, getting better every day. But it’s clearly not the best way to go. Right?”
A netizen went ahead and commented on Kartik’s reply, “From one super sexist film to a relatively lesser sexist film. Getting better every day, eh.”

Earlier, talking about being an actor, Kartik took to his Instagram handle to share a still from ‘Love Aaj Kal’ where he poured his heart out about his dream to be an actor and his passion for the profession. He wrote, “When you first dream of being in films, you act in front of the mirror and nail it every time, and the world of movies seems magical. Then you get a movie. You see the camera and are unnerved. It’s bigger than the suitcase you brought to Mumbai. The bright lights seem to be scolding you for not landing on a one-inch tape mark and wasting everyone’s time. The first few years become about trying not to look nervous. Then you get an Imtiaz Ali movie. (sic)”

When you first dream of being in films, you act in front of the mirror and nail it every time, and the world of movies seems magical. Then you get a movie. You see the camera and are unnerved. It’s bigger than the suitcase you brought to Mumbai. The bright lights seem to be scolding you for not landing on a one inch tape mark and wasting everyones time. The first few years become about trying not to look nervous. Then you get an Imtiaz Ali movie. The moment he narrates the story, you are pulled into a dream. I don’t even remember seeing the camera on his set, he‘d always be standing wherever I looked after cut. He was never at the monitor, he was by my side. The lights on Imtiaz Ali’s set help you find those tape marks. I have never experienced the kind of love and appreciation I have got for my performance in Love Aaj Kal, and that too from some of my favourite filmmakers and people I most respect in the industry. How ironic that the making of this film felt most effortless! It would scare me to think of doing two characters in one movie. And here, I didn’t even realise how smoothly I was being transitioned between #Veer and #Raghu . For an actor, there is no better environment than being In front of that mirror. Imtiaz Ali takes you there. This is the reason why so many great actors’ greatest performances have been in Imtiaz Ali films. Imtiaz Ali director nahi hain, jadugar hain! Thank you sir for giving me the best performance of my career yet. ❤️ @imtiazaliofficial #LoveAajKal
