  • Kartik Aaryan completes 12 years in Bollywood today.
  • His rise from a nobody to a superstar without any Godfather is highly inspirational.

Kartik Aaryan completes his 12 years of journey in Bollywood today. His first movie Pyaar Ka Punchnama was released 12 years ago. Over the years Koki as he is fondly called has worked in many movies and has emerged as one of the hot favourite among the young generations.

Kartik's chocolate boy image has girls swooning over him and that is one reason why his theatrical release Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has been such a big hit last year amid the times when other big-budget Bollywood movies were struggling at the box office.

From Pyaar Ka Punchnama to BB2

Pyaar Ka Punchnama was followed by Akaash Vani, Kaanchi, Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, Silvat, and Guest in London. But it was Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety released in 2018 that made Kartik Aaryan a Bollywood superstar and gave him the solid recognition that he had been looking for since his debut.

His following movies Luka Chuppi and Pati Patni Aur Woh were not exactly blockbusters but did well and importantly, contributed towards his growing popularity among the younger generation.

His few films like Love Aaj Kal, OTT releases like Dhamaka and Freddy failed at the box office but with these movies, Kartik proved his versatility. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 released last year has established that he can single-handedly shoulder a movie and cross the coveted Rs 100 or Rs 200 crore mark.

Freddy and Shehzada that followed BB2 were not big hits but they confirmed that Kartik is immensely popular among young audiences.
