IFFM Guests

Kartik Aaryan

This young superstar is currently basking in the success of his ongoing film in theatres, "Satyaprem Ki Katha" (2023), and what has always been consistent in his journey is his ability to surprise everyone right from the start of his career. The success of his recent outing has not only added to his list of box office successes but has also made him one of the youngest and most profitable global stars.

Coming from the small town of Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh, India, he made his debut with Luv Ranjan's "Pyaar Ka Punchnama" (2011). The film, featuring complete outsiders and newbies, became a sleeper-hit at the box office, with Kartik's monologue becoming the USP of the film.

This fan-made superstar's journey included working with numerous newer directors, delivering hits after hits at the box office and on OTT platforms. From "PKP 2" (2015), "Sonu Ke Titu Ke Sweety" (2018), "Luka Chuppi" (2019), "Pati Patni Aur Woh" (2019), "Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2" (2022), "Dhamaka" (2022) to "Freddy" (2022), he always had something new for his fans, exploring different genres and roles. Even his dance numbers became chartbusters, with his hook steps going viral and trending on the internet for a long time.

Kartik's reach on social media is giant amidst the netizens, reigning on all platforms with millions of followers. What makes Kartik Aaryan's journey exceptional is the fact that he swiftly climbed up the ladder without any Godfather or film connection in Bollywood, making a place for himself at the top. Known as one of the most versatile actors of the next generation, Kartik is a favourite among the masses and the heartthrob of the nation, truly an inspiration to many.
