[WATCH] Badshah Calls Kartik Aaryan 'Overrated' And The Actor Gave A Humble Reply


Kartik Aaryan has established himself as a prominent figure in Bollywood through his exceptional acting in movies such as Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Luka Chuppi, Satyaprem Ki Katha, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, and others. At 33 years old, he is currently enjoying the acclaim for his recent film Chandu Champion, which premiered on June 14, 2024. Recently, an old video clip of his from a popular talk show has been gaining traction on social media.

Kartik Aaryan declined to identify the ‘overrated’ actor in the industry.

Kartik gave a humble response to badshah

Kartik Aaryan appeared on the sixth season of Karan Johar’s popular talk show, Koffee With Karan, alongside his Luka Chuppi co-star, Kriti Sanon. During one segment of the show, the host asked Kartik to name an overrated actor in the industry. The actor politely declined to name anyone, explaining that he considers himself relatively new in the industry. In his words,

“Abhi abhi chalu kiya hoon kaam. Kisi ko overrated bolna matlab…””I feel I am too new right now to comment on anyone else.”

Karan Johar revealed that Badshah called Kartik Aaryan an ‘overrated’ actor

As Kartik was about to finish his sentence, Karan cut him off and said, “But people have called you overrated on this couch.” The actor was visibly in shock after hearing such a thing and added, “Sir, koi overrated kyu bolega kisi ko?” He further inquired who had said that about him. To which Karan replied, “Badshah.”

Kartik Aaryan was indeed surprised by KJo’s revelation, and understandably so! However, he didn’t hesitate to recall a previous conversation he had with Badshah, where the rapper had praised his performances. Kartik shared that Badshah had complimented his work and expressed his appreciation for Badshah’s music in return. He said,

“I really appreciate his music, and I mean he is the one who called me and said after Sonu that ‘Paaji, I love your work’, and I loved Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, and meri poori family aapki fan hai. I don’t know why he said that but I really love his music.”
