None of the industry folks or Kartik’s peers would have expected such a huge accolade coming his way. Kartik Aaryan wins the ‘Best Entertainer of the Year’ award at the honorable Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award held annually to regard top film industry performers.
Kartik indeed gave a brilliant performance as Sonu in ‘Sonu ke Titu ki Sweety’, displaying impeccable comic timing, charm, wit and innocence, while playing the most desired ‘best friend’ to Titu. Despite having no romantic angle, Sonu aka Kartik stood out in this two-hero film while trying to one-up the girl considered in the arranged marriage set-up.
While risking the image of a misogynist through many of his past and recent films, Kartik maintained it is a byproduct of the female character written and not to show him as a superior entity.
Kartik is sharing this honor alongside two superstars, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor for Padmaavat, and the award will only add more credibility and brand value to his newly acquired star image.
The emerging actor has given his career’s first 100 CR film at a time when big league films have suffered to find an audience. Whether the makers will consider a part 2 to Sonu ke Titu ki Sweety is still to be seen, given their famous franchise Pyaar ka Punchama and its several editions.
Sources claim, Kartik might have bagged a film with ace director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. This will be a huge announcement and a milestone in his shining career.
