Katik holds Amitabh Bachchan in high esteem
Actor Kartik Tiwari, who bowled fans over with his superb performance and comic timing in the movie Pyaar Ka Punchnama, is a big sports buff in real life. The actor, who will soon be seen in the upcoming film AkaashVani, says, "I am very good at football and table tennis, and love watching cricket. I felt heartbroken when Sachin Tendulkar retired from one-day internationals recently! Besides, I am a huge fan of video games and often, used to bunk school to play video games."
Kartik, who couldn't complete his B. Tech earlier as he was busy with shooting, stresses on the importance of having a back-up option in an actor's career. "I have no godfather here, so a back-up option is crucial. I have already appeared for my written exams (final year) a few days back and want to complete my degree. Besides, my parents, who are doctors, were always keen that I should complete my studies. Ours is a typical Indian middle-class family and a lot of importance is given to education. It's nice to be an educated actor, isn't it?" he asks.
Kartik, who idolizes Amitabh Bachchan, says, "Just like Sachin, I have never heard Amitabh Bachchan indulging in self-praise. His humility makes him so endearing, and I am amazed to know that he remembers the names of everyone on the sets while shooting!"
