Kartik Aaryan is on a promotional spree for his is upcoming film Pati Patni Aur Woh. Starring Ananya Panday and Bhumi Pednekar alongside Kartik, the film is a remake of the 1978 cult classic with the same name. Directed by Muddasar Aziz, the film is said to be a fresh version of the original film and Kartik is all set to entertain the fans as Chintu Tyagi.
But you’d be surprised to know that Kartik Aaryan has never watched the original 1978 released film! Yes, you read that right! During an interview with a leading daily, the actor revealed that he did not watch the film as he did not want to inherit any characteristics of the character played by Sanjeev Kumar.
While Talking to Bombay Times, Kartik Aaryan revealed why he didn’t watch the 1978 film, directed by BR Chopra. He said “The makers have picked only the basic premise from the original film (by the same name) and changed the other elements around it. I didn’t watch the cult classic, because I wanted Chintu to be a completely new person on the big screen.”
Earlier, Kartik was asked about his controversial marital rape monologue to which he replied that the team did not intend to hurt anyone’s feelings and it never crossed their mind that the dialogue will trigger hate. He said, “When the trailer came, we realized that we shouldn’t hurt anyone and should remove it immediately. Usually, this doesn’t happen in films.”
“We took responsibility because it might have come across as something that wasn’t our intention. We realized we shouldn’t use that word (rape) at all so we have rectified it and made changes because we don’t want to hurt people’s sentiments,” added the Pati Patni Aur Woh actor.
Backed by Bhushan Kumar, Pati Patni Aur Woh will hit the theatres on December 6.
