'I always want to be relatable'
Mumbai: Kartik Aaryan is enjoying his newfound fame and the actor says as an artist his aim is to stay relatable.
The actor, who got an opportunity to work with filmmakers like Imtiaz Ali, Anees Bazmee and Mudassar Aziz post the success of Sonu Ke Teetu Ki Sweety , said he is a secure performer but is trying to find the key to remain relevant.
"I am living my dream of working with the people I want to work with. I am really secure with what I am doing and I am getting to do the work I want to do. The only thing I want in the next five years too is that I should be relatable. The way people relate to me right now because right now I am one of them.
"I don't know after five or 10 years and even after that... I don't know how superstars of this country do this after 20-25 years and it is amazing how they do it. I want to work on it, to be always relatable," said Kartik.
The 28-year-old actor said even after becoming a Bollywood actor, he, at times, feels he is not tailor-made for the profession. "I get that thought even in today, but it is all momentary. When you are sad you think 'Am I in a wrong place even after getting so much and reaching this far?'
"I wouldn't lie or hide that I don't get that thought. The struggle will go on. I am still struggling. That thought will never stop," he added.
Kartik said he has faced a lot of rejection in his career and the lessons from those setbacks protect him from getting swayed by success. "It will never go into my head. I have many 'no men' around me. Be it my family and my team they never appreciate me, they are never impressed. It keeps me on my toes. I am unhappy with my takes... You shouldn't feel you have mastered the art."
