CELEBRITY NEWS: A majority of Kartik Aaryan’s films have been about ‘flawed’ female characters, or so he says! His most popular ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ series showed girlfriends that are dominating, manipulative, commitment-phobic, and gold-diggers.
But, Aaryan has often received criticism from fans for his non-versatile choice of characters. The young actor who is almost as old as Ayushmann Khurrana in the industry is often being compared to him for his script choices.
Defending himself over the same, Kartik during a recent interview with DNA said, “It often happens that Ayushmann does films about men with defects while I do films about women with defects.”
While others laughed it off, co-star and alleged ex-flame, Sara Ali Khan asked him what is the defect in her character Zoe, from their latest Bollywood outing, ‘Love Aaj Kal’.
Kartik replied with a song from their film, and said, “Haan Main Galat”.
Kartik also opened up about the backlash he received for his ‘marital rape’ comment that featured in the trailer of his last film ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’.
“When the trailer came, we realized that we shouldn’t hurt anyone and should remove it immediately. Usually, this doesn’t happen in films. We took responsibility because it might have come across as something that wasn’t our intention. We realized we shouldn’t use that word (rape) at all so we have rectified it and made changes because we don’t want to hurt people’s sentiments,” he explained.
“We didn’t realize it when we were doing it. We had shown it to a lot of people, but no one had pointed it out. We didn’t want to hurt anyone’s sentiments. This isn’t the topic of our film nor was this our intention,” Kartik added, reports HT.
No matter what Kartik says, we seriously want him to choose more versatile characters and films now. What do you think? Tell us!
