Kartik Aaryan feels ‘blessed’ to be working at a time when such varied content is being produced. The actor was asked about him being pitted against his contemporaries such as Vicky Kaushal, Varun Dhawan and Tiger Shroff.
When asked if he keeps tabs on them, Kartik said that more than feeling threatened or competitive, he feels inspired to do better after watching them perform.
“I watch all their films, and speak to them honestly. In fact, Ranbir (Ranbir Kapoor) was talking about Ranveer (Ranveer Singh) in an interview recently about doing a multi-starrer. Yes, people pit actors against each other, but that doesn’t really matter. I appreciate good performances, or good dancing. For example, Tiger (Tiger Shroff) is so good at action, and I really admire him for it. I admire Ranbir and Ranveer for how they perform in certain scenes,” the actor was quoted saying.
Adding to it he said, “More than a sense of competitiveness, I feel inspired to improve myself after watching them. I would love to be mentioned in the same breath as them, in terms of performance and action. It’s so wonderful to see so many different kinds of actors working in the industry these days. We are really blessed to be in this day and age.”
Ram Madhvani’s directorial Dhamaka starring Kartik was released on Netflix on. The actor essays the role of a news anchor who is held hostage in the studio by a ‘terrorist’ who threatens to detonate bombs in Mumbai. Kartik also has Bhool Bhuliayaa 2, Freddy, Captain India and more in his kitty.
