Anish Mohanty

Kartik Aaryan’s has been the true-blue ‘outsider’ success story. With zero contacts in the industry, the actor, who was studying in an engineering college, when he auditioned for his first film, has made a solid mark for himself what with him being one of the most sought-after young actors in the Hindi film industry today. He made his debut with ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ (2011) – the film was a moderate success at the box-office but ended up achieving a cult status for itself over repeated viewings on TV and other home video mediums.

After a few hits and misses over a period of seven years, ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ became that breakthrough success for him after which people in the industry started taking notice of him. Since then, he has delivered two more big successes in the form of ‘’ and ‘’ and now, awaiting the release of ‘Love Aaj Kal’ which is carrying some very good buzz for itself.

While several big filmmakers are approaching this young actor for their films today, there was one filmmaker who predicted that Kartik has all the qualities to become a superstar when he had just two releases (‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ and ‘Aakash Vaani’) behind him. That filmmaker was Subhash Ghai!

While giving an interview to trade analyst and film critic Komal Nahta during the promotions of his then upcoming film ‘Kaanchi The Unbreakable’ (2013), Subhash Ghai had some very positive things to say about Kartik. Kartik was playing the lead in the film and Ghai remarked that apart from being a good performer, he is also star-material. Furthermore, he added that if Kartik manages to deliver a couple of hits, he can become a bonafide superstar. His words have definitely come true!

Subhash Ghai’s prophetic words about Kartik can he heard in this video from 23:00 minutes onwards.
