I have done monologues in only two movies, says Kartik Aaryan

New Delhi: It’s been almost 10 years but Kartik Aaryan’s monologues from the “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” series continue to be so popular with his fans that the actor says every time he delivers barely three lines people subconsciously think he is going for it again.

Kartik’s one-man acts, where he ranted about his love life, played a significant role in the success of Luv Ranjan’s “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” (2011) and “Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2” (2015).

But the 29-year-old actor asserted he has never delivered monologues beyond these two films.

“Monologues were there in just two films. Whenever I say a three-line dialogue, people think that I’m delivering a monologue. The dialogues in ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ films were actually monologues. They were both six-page long scenes and 12 minutes in length,” Kartik said.

“But it is just these two films out of my whole filmography — ‘Akash Vaani’, ‘Luka Chuppi’, ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’, ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ and now ‘Love Aaj Kal’. I have never done monologues. So it is wrong to compare,” he added.

The actor said today people have a preconceived notion that he is doling out a monologue as a rant or in a confrontational scene in his films.

“Both the monologues went viral, they were a hit on social media. People have really loved them. Now, it comes subconsciously to people that I’m delivering a lot of monologues.

“In ‘Luka Chuppi’, I barely had any dialogues because it was a situational comedy. But whenever there is a confrontational scene or a scene where I’m ranting about something, you get a sense that a monologue has started or is about to come,” Kartik said.

But the actor said he is not averse to delivering monologues, which he considers his USP if it is an important part of the script.

“If it is an integral part of a film, only then it makes sense and everybody understands that as we are all professionals. It’s no harm to work on someone’s USP, to encash on it. So I wouldn’t hide the fact that people want me to deliver monologues in films.

“But the kind of films I have chosen recently, they didn’t have situations where you can fit in a monologue,” Kartik added.

The actor’s latest release was Imtiaz Ali’s “Love Aaj Kal”. Also featuring Sara Ali Khan, the film hit the screens last Friday, February 14.
