Dharmendra had said, “Uske chehre mein masoomiyat aur imaandari hai,” about Kartik Aaryan
Legendary actor Dharmendra once said, “It is far easier to play larger-than-life characters than real-life characters.”
In Kartik Aaryan’s upcoming film, Satyaprem Ki Katha, directed by the remarkable Sameer Vidwans, Aaryan will finally learn the truth behind Dharamji’s claim.
Dharmendra’s most famous film, Satyakam, directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, featured him as a character named Satyaprakash. Kartik, with his blue collar garb and demeanor, is a symbol of the ordinary man’s drive and commitment to doing the right thing.
Dharamji’s voice melts into a gushe of pride as we tell him about Kartik’s part. To paraphrase one of his many positive character references: “He is a diligent, honest young guy. We’re all one big masoomiyat and imaandari, usske chehre main ek. (his face communicates an innocence and honesty). The same traits are what make me appealing to my fan base.
