Actor Kartik Aaryan is easily one of the most fancied actors in Bollywood today. He has completed shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s next, a sequel to his hit Love Aaj Kal (tentatively titled Love Aaj Kal 2) and has two more interesting projects in his kitty — Pati, Patni Aur Woh and Dostana 2.

Kartik, who stars with Sara in Love Aaj Kal 2, said that not only did he enjoy working with the Kedarnath actor, she is a person with a ‘heart of gold’. He was quoted as saying: “Sara is a star and a person with a heart of gold. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. she has a certain positive that she brings to the screen and I would love to work with her again and again.” There have been speculation that the duo is in a relationship. Recently, as Sara walked the ramp at India Couture Week, Kartik was in the front row.

He said: “Working with Imtiaz sir changed me as an actor and also as a person. He is one of my most favourite directors and thanks to him my approach towards acting is different today. It has given me a different perspective. The way I look at a character now, it’s more real. I feel more connected with myself and what i want. I have more or less done romcoms before, bit this is something I have never done before, and I got the opportunity to showcase my range as an actor in this film.”

Talking about his journey in the film industry, he said that his struggle is a continuous one — initially it was about getting into the industry and now, it was about sustaining his hold every Friday.
