An engineer turned actor, Kartik Aaryan has finally made it big in Bollywood. He made his debut in 2011 with Luv Ranjan’s romcom, Pyaar Ka Punchnama, wherein his famous monologue went viral and made him a star overnight.
However, Kartik went on to star in films like Kaanchi, Akaash Vani, which did not do well on the box office. Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 proved to be a turning point for the actor, post which he finally gave Rs. 100 crores grosser with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety in 2018.
Well, the rest remains history now. After his big success in 2018, he has made his place in the list of bankable actors. He delivered two blockbuster hits in 2019: Luka Chuppi and Pati Patni Aur Woh.
He was last seen opposite Sara Ali Khan in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal. Looks like the actor’s growing popularity has brought in a change in his fees. Reportedly, Kartik turned down Ekta Kapoor’s film over his hike in fees that he demanded for the project.
A source close to the Bollywood Hungama quotes, “Kartik first offered her the age-old ghisa-pita excuse of dates nahin hai. Shrugging his shoulders helplessly. But it seems Kartik and Ekta couldn’t agree on the payment.”
The report also adds that Kartik is also demanding a fee higher than actors Varun Dhawan and Shahid Kapoor, due to his golden run with recent releases.
Meanwhile, Kartik has Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 co-starring Kiara Advani and Dostana 2 alongside Janhvi Kapoor in his pipeline.
