Kartik Aaryan on overcoming the label of “outsider”: It will remain with me, and that is alright with me.

Actor Kartik Aaryan entered Bollywood 13 years ago with no film industry restrictions and quickly established himself as a valuable performer and box office draw. Nevertheless, the actor doesn’t mind that he is still labelled as an outsider.

He claims that his motivation to push himself further comes from the knowledge that he might not receive another chance.

After making his screen debut in 2011 in Luv Ranjan’s Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Kartik went on to establish himself in the business with roles in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, Luka Chuppi, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, and Satyaprem Ki Katha. He is currently waiting for Chandu Champion, his film, to be released.

Kartik, who started out as an outsider with no contacts in the business, has gone a long way. The actor acknowledges his gratitude for making it this far and vows to never forget where he began.

“It is what it is,” he says, candidly discussing how the label of “outsider” has followed him down the years.

“I didn’t know anyone here when I first started my adventure in Bollywood. And things remain the same as they have been up until now. For me, everything is the same. There are Fridays that work and Fridays that don’t. However, it is still true that I have never been an insider, he continues.

As he acknowledges, “It is a mindset which is going to stay with me,” he is aware that he arrived in the glitzy town from the “outside world.” As of right now, I think that any Friday can also be the last Friday. This is the reverberation that never stops in my head. Ke kahin mera pack up na ho jaaye”.

Perhaps at some point in the future, I (realise) that I have no other options. I may not receive a second or third chance, and I have nowhere else to go. This is the worry that never goes away from him.

Kartik claims that his Bollywood career has been an open book, with everyone able to see both the highs and the lows.

“That’s the reason why I’m frequently asked if I’m an outsider. I am more outspoken about that path because I am proud of it. It’s also a positive thing. He says with pride, “Whoever has succeeded on his own ought to be really proud of it.

Regarding not assuming success for granted
He has become a bankable star today, proving his value at the box office with a string of hits. He doesn’t, however, become emotionally invested in his accomplishment.

It is impossible to take success for granted. In fact, there are moments when I even hesitate to use the word “success.” It might be referred to as nazar lag jaati hai, or superstition. All I’m doing is my job. I’m hoping that people will keep loving me and being interested in what I’m doing. “I won’t get attached to flops or hits; I’ll keep working the way I’ve been working,” he emphasises.

He is excited for the release of Kabir Khan’s Chandu Champion, the film that he is now working on.

“Working on the movie has been incredibly fulfilling. Playing Murlikant Petkar was a challenging yet enjoyable exercise that satisfied my creative needs. Having a movie like this is a unique chance. I was ecstatic to be able to work on the project. I had a terrific time despite the agony, injuries, and sacrifices,” Kartik says, grinning broadly at the news that the movie is set for a large screen premiere.

The narrative of a sportsman’s tenacity and resolve is told by Chandu Champion. The movie is based on the life of India’s first gold medallist in the Paralympic Games for freestyle swimming, Murlikant Petkar. It will be revealed that Kartik suffered a significant physical metamorphosis in order to convey the life of Murlikant to Chandu. June 14 is the scheduled release date of the movie. Kabir Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala are co-producing the movie.

Dolly Singh on her “love-hate” relation with her physical appearance

Actress and content producer Dolly Singh recently talked about her weight swings and image worries in an Instagram post. She has since acknowledged that she is still working on accepting her body as it is and that there are still days when she stays away from others in order to avoid hearing criticism of her fluctuations in weight.

Dolly revealed in an Instagram post how people make fun of her weight. Her house is not one of the few individuals or places, she claimed, where she feels safe enough to be herself.

Relationship between hate and love
“Like everybody else, I’ve had a journey with my body of accepting it, not accepting it, Hating it and loving it and all of that,” she says when explaining why she decided to share the picture. I believe that I was just thinking about something when I decided to post about it at this particular moment. I recently lost a lot of weight, which is very normal for me because I usually gain less weight than I lose. Of course, this also brings scrutiny because my weight fluctuates like everyone else’s, and I suddenly realised that I was avoiding some people because I felt that my new weight or appearance will not invite great things from them or they will not be welcoming it maybe, wonder how safe space in the scenario is so important, it’s only a few people in your life that really let you be and enjoy and don’t make everything about how you look and your weight and everything else so I felt sad”. 

I felt certain that many others would be in a similar situation, therefore it was also something I wanted to discuss. “I decided to share it through my Instagram post,” the actor continued. Thank You For Coming is his most recent Bollywood blockbuster.

Continuous journey
Dolly, who rose to stardom on social media, acknowledges that she is still working on coming to terms with her physical appearance.

It has been a long journey, similar to every woman’s, she recalls. “It took me many years to really come to terms with the way I am, accept it if not love it,” she says. “Obviously, as a kid, you don’t really know, and then suddenly you’re very aware of how you look and how people perceive you and that you don’t meet the beauty standards.”

If I’m being absolutely honest, I believe that my true sense of contentment with my identity and appearance didn’t exist until I was around 25 or 26. Although the majority of days are wonderful, there are still bad ones. I think social media has definitely helped me a lot, she adds. “And honestly, I actually owe it to people on the Internet who follow me and say nice things because it has given me such a confidence boost and people who constantly put out such body positive content,” she says.

Not a simple procedure
In this passage, Dolly acknowledges that her journey towards self-acceptance has not been easy.

When asked about her greatest struggle, she responds, “I think the hardest part is to keep doing it and keep reminding yourself that what you have is great and of course you can be fitter and whatever your goal maybe, but that doesn’t mean that what you have right now, the body that is providing for you, is doing any less, or you should be hating it.” She also says that she has had to constantly pick herself up from pieces because it’s not like once you start loving yourself there are no bad days.

“Even though others may say otherwise, I think it’s difficult to constantly remind yourself that that’s not how it is,” she adds. “Because sometimes I try to look at my body as a friend and that’s when I start feeling bad for how I treat it sometimes or how I say mean things to it sometimes.”

When you ask her if she feels totally at ease with your body right now, Dolly says, “It’s a journey..And while it might be a rollercoaster, I believe that as we get older and wiser, navigating the changing ways our bodies and skin look has become simpler, but the journey never ends.
