Kartik Aaryan on Relationship a Bollywood Actor, Movie Trade Infidelity: ‘Ought to I Cease Relationship?’
Kartik Aaryan opened up about the challenges of dating a fellow actor in a new interview and addressed rumors that infidelity is rampant in the film industry. Kartik said for him “mutual respect” is the most important thing in a relationship.
In an appearance on YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadia’s podcast, Kartik admitted he dated in the film industry, but denied it changes much about the dynamic shared by two partners. When asked if it’s difficult for two actors to maintain a relationship or if there’s competition, Kartik said, “To each their own, it depends… It’s not about this profession, it’s more about the person to person… It’s about how compatible you are with each other.”
When asked if it’s true that infidelity is common in the film industry, Kartik agreed that that’s the perception shaped by the media, but said much of it was made up. “When two actors work together and go out for coffee, they are reported as having been ‘sighted’ together. People will start talking. Should I stop going out? Or should I look for insider tips? What if two people only meet as friends? When four people go out, they only post photos of two. Happens. And that’s why it feels weird when you’re later ‘discovered’ with someone else,” Kartik said.
Kartik said gossip like this can be “screwed up,” but he understands the audience’s desire for it. The actor has avoided serious connections in the past but rumors of his dating Janhvi Kapoor made the rounds a few months ago when they were spotted together in Goa. The two were set to star in Dostana 2, but Kartik left the project after having disagreements with Dharma Productions.
The actor was last seen in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2the horror comedy that has been Making gangbusters at the box office. The film has grossed Rs 67 crore in four days and is expected to hit the Rs 90 crore mark by the end of its first week.
