Kartik Aaryan on his character in Chandu Champion 

Chandu Champion The film is based on the story of Murlikant Petkar, India's Paralympic gold champion. Talking to ANI, Kartik Aaryan said, "It is based on the story of Murlikant Petkar. It shows his entire life journey. This story is more than a sports film. It is a very inspiring tale and took a lot of hard work to do this." The actor unveiled the trailer for the Kabir Khan directorial in his hometown Gwalior. 

While sharing what makes the movie special to him, he added, “Launching the trailer of the film in Gwalior was a great experience. The kind of response I received from the audience was overwhelming. My father was also very emotional. This is a very relatable story and inspires a lot of people to achieve their dreams. It's the story of all the dreamers. And from where I had dreamed, I thought that the 'Chandu Champion' trailer should be launched there. It was a different experience and we all liked it.”

Kartik Aaryan talks about working with Kabir Khan 

Helmed by Kabir Khan, Chandu Champion is based on the extraordinary real-life story of a sportsman. Talking about his working experience with the ace director and how challenging it was to get into the skin of the character, he said, "This is the toughest film of my career. I don't think there will be a tougher role than this. Because of the way the story was, I was under a lot of pressure to do the full justice. I learned everything from scratch. I never thought of doing boxing or dangal in any film. And I was also very scared of deep water. So, swimming in the deep water and performing boxing with professional boxers was a very big thing for me."

Chandu Champion is scheduled to hit theatres on June 14. Kartik Aaryan will also feature in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 which is set to release on Diwali this year.
