Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan, or #Sartik, have created a whole lot of buzz. We all remember when Sara crushed on him hard on Koffee With Karan saying that she wanted to date the Pyaar Ka Punchnama star. When Kartik was asked what his response was to this kind of attention, he said that he found her very pretty and would like to have coffee with her.
Now, this jodi has become a fan favourite. They are starring opposite each other in the highly anticipated film by Imtiaz Ali titled Aaj Kal, a sequel to Saif & Deepika's Love Aaj Kal (2009). In a recent interview, Kartik said that ever since Sara declared her interest in him on the show, he wanted to star opposite her.
"Jab se Sara ne Koffee With Karan pe bola hai, tab se main wait kar raha hoon ki hum dono kab ek movie mein dikhenge. I think woh tab se apne aap mein ek curiosity hai. Bohot zyada curiosity rahi hai and I hope ki we will live up to that. (Ever since Sara took my name on Koffee With Karan, I have been waiting for us to be seen in a film together. I think since then, there has been a lot of curiosity about our pairing and I hope we will live up to that)," the Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety actor said.
Kartik even said that he has never received this amount of attention and is super excited about their ship name #Sartik. "The kind of fan frenzy…Sartik jo ek word create hua hai, it’s something which has never happened before the film. Ek frame mein screen pe dekhne se pehle hi yeh chalu hua hai. I love these a lot and I hope ki sab log… They won’t be disappointed! (Never has it happened before that fans created a moniker like Sartik even before seeing a pair together in a film. I love these a lot and I hope that people won’t be disappointed)”, he added.
He also spoke about working with the ace director Imtiaz Ali and said that his entire thought process of approaching acting has changed after shooting with him, "Jis tareeke ki woh film hai, woh bohot relatable film hai. I’m romantic at heart, toh mujhe bohot achchi lagta hai, jo Imtiaz sir ki duniya hoti hai. (The kind of film it is, it is very relatable. I'm a romantic at heart and I really like the world created by Imtiaz sir in his films)."
However, we still don't know if the alleged love birds actually dated. Though it was said that they had called it quits after briefly seeing each other. While their off-screen love is said to have not blossomed, their on-screen one is ready to dazzle everyone. Aaj Kal also features Randeep Hooda and is scheduled to hit the theatres on Valentine’s Day (February 14) this year.
All the best for your film, Sartik. We finally have V-day plans now!
