Kartik Aaryan on comedy genres

Ahead of Chandu Champion's release, Kartik Aaryan spoke to PTI about how comedy movies are ‘unfairly’ treated as an easier genre. According to the actor, comedy is unfortunately treated as an easier genre in the film industry. He added, "It takes a lot of acting in a film like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. Comedy is a genre that's very difficult to crack and you'll get this answer whenever you ask any actor or director. It's not an easy thing. I don't know it, I do it.” 

He added, “Even if I know it, that doesn't mean there's no hard work involved. Sometimes what happens is that sadly comedy films don't get that much credibility. That's a sad reality and I've noticed it. It's not about the gags.”

Actor Kartik Aaryan says he doesn't believe in running behind films that check mark his acting chops or get him in the good books of critics. The actor said he instead looks for stories that have the potential to draw audiences to theatres. He added, "All the films that I've been doing showcase a different side of me. For example, if I do a film like Freddy, Satyaprem Ki Katha or Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, they are all different from each other... I'm doing work on the basis of what I heard in the narration whether I liked it, and I want to be a part of it or not.”

The Gwalior-born actor told PTI, “Am I able to watch it, will I go to the theatre to watch it? That's my only funda (rule)... It's not like (I need) validation from someone or critics. I get my validation from the audience. That is the audience is going to the theatres to watch it, whether they are enjoying the film or not.” Chandu Champion is a Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Kabir Khan Films Production.
