Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety was loved & praised by one and all and the lead star of the film, Kartik Aaryan became a star overnight. Even now, when he steps out, fans start screaming his name and can go to crazy extents to click one picture with him! However, rumours started doing the rounds that success has gone to his head and the actor has become too big for his boots!
In a recent interview with Deccan Chronicle, director Luv Ranjan, who launched Kartik in Bollywood through Pyar Ka Punchnama and played a major role in transforming Kartik into a star, reveals the truth and here's what the director has to say!
Luv Says It's Just A Matter Of Perception
"I've known Kartik from the time I signed him for Pyaar Ka Punchnama. Now when it (stardom) is finally happening to him, of course there will be whispers about how he has changed. But the change that we see in successful people is often a matter of perception," says Luv.
He Also Gave An Example To Justify His Statement
"Kartik doesn't drink, so he finds it difficult to attend parties. But he makes it a point to come to my parties whenever I invite him. He hangs around a bit. And when the drinking starts he looks at me to ask if he can leave."
Now if he was to do the same thing, leave in half an hour, people will say he has developed an attitude after success."
Does Kartik Throw Starry Tantrums?
"So far so good. Kartik has not changed. But even if he were to change I wouldn't be shattered. My father always warned me not to waste my time making friends."
Luv Trusts Kartik
"His experience taught him to not trust anyone. My experience has been otherwise. I've reason to trust friends. And Kartik is one of them. However, if he chooses to change tomorrow that is fine."
Luv Says He Did Kartik No Favour
"Why should I have any expectations from him? I did him no favour. For Pyaar Ka..., I had auditioned scores of newcomers. I chose Kartik because he fitted the bill perfectly. If I gave him a break, he also served my purpose in the script," he concludes.
We just hope that whatever Luv says about Kartik is true and may the young star achieve even more stardom and focus more on his acting prowess as audiences do have high expectations from him.
