I have stayed with 12 guys in a flat. That was something I never thought I would do because I hail from Gwalior, which is not an expensive city to live in, but Mumbai is really expensive," he said.

"We had our share of struggles. We used to go to auditions, wahaan pe 'not fit' ho jaata tha. I used to travel without tickets in local trains from Navi Mumbai to Mumbai when I was auditioning. I didn't even have that much money," he added.

On the work front, Kartik recently wrapped up Imtiaz Ali's Aaj Kal, the sequel to Love Aaj Kal. He will be seen romancing Sara Ali Khan in the film, which also stars Randeep Hooda in a key role.

Presented by Jio Studios, Dinesh Vijan's Maddock Films, Imtiaz Ali and Reliance Entertainment's Window Seat Films, Aaj Kal will release on February 14, 2020.
