As is the saying, with big power comes big responsibilities. This is a position that Kartik Aaryan is finding himself in today after the biggest box office opening of his career, Pati Patni aur Woh, and he can well be expected to be ecstatic about that. In a span of just twenty months, the actor has now ensured big opening of his third film in a row, hence establishing himself the new prince of the box-office.
The best part about Kartik’s journey is that he has successfully transitioned from the image that he had built after Pyaar Ka Punchnama series. While both the installments were great successes, the change started coming when Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) released. From youth, he found himself in a zone where kids started falling in love with him as well.
Post that it was time for some Luka Chuppi as family audiences warmed up to him as well, hence ensuring that Kartik managed the biggest opening ever of his career. The film emerged as one of the earliest successes of the year and while that did wonders for Kartik’s career, the manner in which Pati Patni aur Woh has gone ahead of that is remarkable indeed. The film has taken one of the biggest openings of the year and that too on a clash with another big film, something that has now managed to keep the flag high for Kartik. Popular trade expert Taran Adarsh too sings praise about the actor and says, “From 90 lakhs to 9 crore on day 1, from 3.25 crore to 35-36 crore opening weekend, from Pyaar Ka Punchanama to Pati Patni Aur Woh.. It has been a meteoric rise for Kartik Aaryan! That’s not all, 2019 started with Luka Chuppi for Kartik and has ended with Pati Patni Aur Woh, both super hit films. The good thing is, Kartik is working in movies that not just appeal to youngistan but also to the family audience, so his fan based is not limited to young girls or teenage crowd. What makes his success journey meritorious, is the fact that he has made it without any star Godfather or a star producer backing him. It’s purely on his merit, strength and his own decisions.”
We couldn’t agree more, Kartik Aaryan has worked hard to reach to this pedestal. Today he’s called one of the youngest actors in tinsel who enjoys immense mass-popularity and recieves so much love from the audiences.
Seconding our thoughts is trade expert and film critic Joginder Tuteja says, “It is always heartening when a young actor manages to earn a loyal audience fan base on a pan-India level. From multiplexes and class audiences, Kartik is aggregating audiences at single screens amongst the masses as well. Pati Patni aur Woh has been doing well across A, B and C centres which is a testimony to his star status. He is still an unexplored talent and if the different shades that he has shown in Pati Patni aur Woh is any indication, I am sure there many more surprises up Kartik’s sleeves.”
