With Imtiaz Ali’s film Love Aaj Kal, Kartik Aaryan’s image as an actor was transformed. The film may have been a box office flop, but it earned him the reputation of great hero.
As soon as Love Aaj Kal was announced, Sara and Kartik drew a lot of attention. It was even more so because the actress revealed her crush on him in her first episode of Koffee With Karan, and this was their first on-screen reunion. Many people sensed that there was a romance developing, and dating rumours spread quickly. Unfortunately, the pair separated up soon after the film’s release.
“No, no,” Kartik Aaryan told Navbharat Times when asked if the relationship rumours with Sara Ali Khan were a promotional stunt for Love Aaj Kal. There was no promotional material there. What am I supposed to say? No, sweetheart, we are also human beings. It is not all promotional. This is all I have to say on the subject.”
Sara Ali Khan was previously asked about dating rumours involving her Love Aaj Kal co-star Kartik Aaryan. She sidestepped the subject by claiming that they are just dating for 2.5 hours in the movie and that fans are welcome to attend.
Meanwhile, after a year after their rumoured split, Kartik and Sara reunited at an award show. Pictures of them meeting each other went viral and became a “hot” issue on the internet.
