Itís nice to be an educated actor: Kartik Tiwari
His natural performance in 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' (PKP) was much appreciated. The clip involving actor Kartik Tiwari's famous monologue remains one of the most watched videos on the internet. Talking about it, Kartik smiles, "It's unbelievable how popular Rajat (his character) became, and I am humbled that people still remember that monologue! I was offered quite a few similar roles after PKP became a hit, but I waited for a while as I didn't want to play a character that was exactly similar. And I am lucky that I got to work with Luv Ranjan again in 'Akaash Vani'. As a newcomer, it's a blessing to have a good director. Luv sir is an excellent storyteller and creates characters that people can relate to."
Talking about his latest outing on the big screen, Kartik says, "It was refreshing to do a love story with a great social message, and I loved the look of the film. Playing Akaash, a Chandigarh lad who falls in love with a girl named Vani, who is very different from him, was great fun. It felt great to be paired opposite Nushrat Bharucha again after PKP. We know each other for three years now and share a great comfort level. People have told me that we form a great on-screen jodi."
Kartik, who couldn't complete his BTech 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?" smiles Kartik.
Is it true that Subhash Ghai is in talks with him for a film? "We have met only once, and nothing has been finalized yet." is all that he is willing to say. He adds, "Someday, I would love to do an action flick!"
In real life, Kartik is a crazy sports buff. "I am very good at football and table tennis, and love watching cricket. I felt heartbroken when Sachin Tendulkar retired from one-day internationals! Besides, I am a huge fan of video games and often, used to bunk school to play video games," he laughs.
Not surprisingly, he idolizes Amitabh Bachchan. "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!" Kartik signs off.
