Before making his mark on Bollywood Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety star Kartik Aaryan was pursuing B.Tech in Biotechnology, as per the sources. Bollywood actor Kartik says that the only condition his mother kept for allowing him to become an actor was that he must complete his graduation.
She even said that ‘you were struggling for all this while, why didn’t you tell us?’
Pyaar Ka Punchnama star reveals that he had to struggle a lot before he bagged himself a role in Luv Ranjan's PKP (2011). “After PKP, when I was shooting for its sequel (PKP 2), you won’t believe but I was taking my B.Tech exams and I remember students clicking photographs with me while we were writing our exam,” said Kartik Aaryan who is currently enjoying the success of his last release, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
The 29-year-old actor Kartik was pretty sure about making his mark on Bollywood but he hesitated in sharing his dream with his parents. “As soon as my mother got to know that I was serious about acting and behind their back, I was struggling to get into acting, she was so, so supportive. By that time, I had already struggled my way to get Pyaar Ka Punchnama and I told them after that,” added Kartik.
Kartik recalls the incident when he revealed hi big dream to his parents, “I was actually crying on the phone and on hearing me, she also started to cry. I got sad that I didn’t share this thing with my mom, as this was the biggest thing that happened in my life and I wanted to share it with my loved ones."
"She even said that ‘you were struggling for all this while, why didn’t you tell us?’ Only I know that I was scared to tell my parents about my dream. I come from a small town middle class family and for them to understand that thing to go to Mumbai and make a career in the Hindi film industry is a huge deal. The chances are like 0.1% to make it big there. So, I never told them [about what I was doing], but when I did, they stood by my decision and never complained,” added Kartik.
