Kartik Aaryan era post-Bhool Bhulaiyaa

In 2022, Aaryan became the epitome of success in all its forms. At a recent award ceremony, the hearthrob won "Best Actor" after receiving praise for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2's success and surprising fans with a brand-new avatar as Freddy. Kartik became the talk of the town after his back-to-back releases like Shehzada and Satyaprem Ki Katha. However, it's Freddy that won him the prestigious accolade.

Kartik Aaryan on his win

During the event, talking about bagging the award for Best Actor (male), Kartik said, "Freddy was a very important film for me. I would firstly like to thank my director, Shashanka Ghosh sir. He worked with me very patiently on this film. JU who kept on believing in this first. Third is Ekta Kapoor, who supported and produced the film. Freddy is a special film. It was the first time I played a grey character through the film. I was working in comic roles and doing romantic films for the longest time. Freddy was one film where I could play a different character. I am extremely thankful that the script came to me. Also, thanks to Alaya for being a supportive co-star. She is also getting a lot of awards for her performance in the film. I'm really happy for her and I'd like to thank RD, the film's lead turtle."
