The dapper actor, Kartik Aaryan is currently promoting his recently-released film, Shehzada, in full throttle. The actor is sharing the screen with one of his favourite co-stars, Kriti Sanon. Directed by Rohit Dhawan, the film is the remake of the famous Telugu film, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, which was released back in 2020. The original film starred Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde as the lead. The remake is off to an impressive start, despite the presence of Pathaan and Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania in the theatres.
Amid the release of his film, Shehzada, in theatres, Kartik Aaryan is receiving a lot of hate on social media for promoting the movie on Burj Khalifa. The actor was recently seen releasing the teaser of his film on the iconic building in Dubai. The world’s tallest building has become a global marketing tool for celebrities to promote their film projects. However, when Kartik opted for the same, people trolled him for copying Shah Rukh Khan’s trademark style.

But seeing you on world's tallest building Burj Khalifa, seeing you surrounded by thousands of people, being showered so much love everyday, sure it’s all worth it for you. Keep making us proud. We love you@kartikaaryan."
