At a time when Bollywood is struggling to make big numbers at the box office, popular actor, Kartik Aaryan’s film, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is one of the few films that did a smashing business in 2022. Despite so much hate and criticism against Kartik for replacing Akshay Kumar in the film’s sequel, the film turned out to be quite entertaining and, in fact, exceeded the expectations of the audiences. After the film's enormous success, Kartik announced his next big-budget film, Satya Prem Ki Katha, opposite Kiara Advani on September 3, 2022, leaving his massive fanbase super-excited about it.
While Kartik Aaryan is riding high on the professional front, rumours of him dating Kriti Sanon often trend the charts on the internet. The duo is known for their amazing camaraderie on and off the camera. Still, the eagle-eyed media sources have spotted no clear hints of them being in a relationship so far.
In an interview with a news portal back in 2020, Kartik Aaryan opened up about his first girlfriend, whom he had dated when the actor was just 16 years old. In his confession, Kartik admitted that at such a young age, he was in love with a girl, and they had dated each other for quite some time. The actor’s sweet confession had broken the headlines back then, and most people lauded him for his candid revelation. However, further, in his confession, Kartik also talked about his relationship and how it was quite tough for them to roam in the city of Gwalior. However, just like every teenager’s breakup, his relationship with that girl also broke after some time. He had said:
"I remember when I was 16 years old, my girlfriend and I used to sit on the same bench in school and we would share homework and assignments. Back then, we were really scared of getting caught when we were on a date. Hence, we used to try our best to hide (our relationship) when we went to public places in Gwalior."
This wasn’t the first time when Kartik Aaryan had talked about his first girlfriend in public. Back in 2018, while promoting his film, Love Aaj Kal, he had talked about his first ladylove and hadn’t revealed her identity. Recalling the days when they were dating, the actor admitted that it was quite scary for him to roam in the city with his girlfriend, but he had a plan B if someone found out that they were dating. Kartik had shared that he used to tell everyone that she was his cousin-sister whenever someone from his known family spotted him with his girlfriend. The actor had said:
"We used to roam around a lot but we were always scared of getting caught. A lot of times, I would address my then girlfriend as my cousin on getting caught!"
For the unversed, since Kartik Aaryan’s breakup with Sara Ali Khan, the actor has dated no one. Although the reports of him getting close to Kriti Sanon often make it into the headlines, no concrete hints are there as of now. Well, there is no doubt that Kartik was quite serious about Sara. Once in a promotional event, when the actor was promoting his film, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, someone had asked him to reflect on their past relationship. While talking about the same, Kartik had clearly stated that his relationship with Sara wasn’t a part of the promotional strategy of their film, Love Aaj Kal. He had said:
"No, no. There was nothing promotional there. How do I explain this? No dear, I mean, we are humans as well. Not everything is promotional. This is all that I will say on this topic."
On the professional front, Kartik Aaryan is all set to take the industry with his much-awaited thriller film, Freedy.
