It wasn’t long back when the Pataudi princess, Sara Ali Khan confessed her crush on the Punchnama Boy, Kartik Aaryan on national television. This was on Koffee with Karan season 6 where Sara appeared with her father Saif Ali Khan. In several other interviews that followed the episode after Koffee with Karan, Sara openly admitted that she finds Kartik ‘Cute’ and would love to go out on a coffee date with him. It was then Ranveer Singh who played the cupid for the couple and introduced them at an award function and the entire internet went crazy. It felt like every girl’s dream coming true.
Kartik Aaryan who had found his share of popularity after 8 years of hard work & struggle in the industry was over-whelmed with Sara’s gratification & confession. He usually dogged the questions about when he would ask her out. But one day, the duo shocked their fans by declaring that they will be starring in a movie by Imtiaz Ali. The movie was later known to be Saif Ali Khan & Deepika Padukone’s hit movie “Love Aaj Kal’s sequel Aaj Kal”.
Fans of both the actors stan each other and started to shit the duo online. But then Kartik was reportedly spotted on dates with Student Of The Year 2 star Ananya Pandey. Their dinner dates came as a shock or adding fuel to the fire for the fans and they started to question Kartik about his relationship with the two.
Kartik who has now become every household name has achieved this success after 8 years of hard work, perseverance & struggle were not letting a relationship take that away. But Kartik & Sara were rumored to be dating as he went to Thailand especially to celebrate Sara’s birthday with her. The two have shared some real candid pictures of their shoot days for the movie. Kartik was spotted with Ibrahim Ali Khan, Sara’s brother, cheering up for her on her first-ever ramp walk for Abu Jani- Sandeep Khosla show. But soon, there were rumors that the two have split up because the two actors have just started their career and want to focus on doing good work. There was news that the two split up because Kartik wanted to be seen as an actor and not just as Sara Ali Khan’s boyfriend. Well, this reason is justified. Although, he says that he is single by choice.
On the other hand, Ananya & Kartik have been shooting for their movie “Pati Patni Aur Woh” and usually share goofy videos from the sets. Recently, Kartik wished Ananya on her birthday in his movie look. Kartik was recently asked about how did he felt about the situation? The Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety star said, that he does not give this link-up rumors much attention, as these have now become a part of his life. He is focused on building up his career and acting in good movies. The actor also said that he is a ‘happy space’ both on professional and personal levels.
All we know is that Sara & Kartik didn’t break up on a bitter note as they want to focus on their careers rather than building a relationship. They have time for that right? When Dinesh Vijan, a filmmaker who worked on “Aaj Kal” with the duo was asked about the controversies, he said; “the movie or the project is above any controversies and unnecessary attention that comes with Sara & Kartik”. The filmmaker told that he has had the chance to work with Sara & Kartik and both the actors are tremendously talented. He has worked with Kartik in “Lukka Chuppi” & he knows Sara since she was a little girl. Since he has teamed up with Imtiaz Ali after a long time, he wants to focus on the work rather than the controversies. Sara & Kartik were last spotted in Dharma Productions’ Diwali Pooja where the actors did come in a frame together but were standing apart. There was another picture posted in which they were seen hugging each other.
Kartik Aaryan is gearing up for his release “Pati Patni Aur Woh” which stars Ananya Pandey & Bhumi Pednekar. Next, he will be seen in “Aaj Kal” opposite Sara Ali Khan. It will be really interesting to see how the chemistry of the duo looks on screen.
