This is why Kartik Aaryan is loved by an enormous number of fans, not only for his attractive appearance but also for his decisiveness against Chinese brands. Currently, he’s the first one to do this in the industry.

Since the nationwide lockdown, Kartik Aaryan regularly updates his daily life on social media, and his latest post has attracted over 1.4 million likes with more than 9.5K comments. So, what's the reason?

Kartik Aaryan used to sign a long-term contract with Oppo, a mobile phone brand from China. Accordingly, he wouldn’t be allowed to promote other phone brands when the contract is valid. However, after the tension between India and China in the border region, especially the call from Indians to drop Chinese products, Kartik Aaryan reportedly ended his contract with Oppo.

On the work front, Kartik Aaryan will star in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Dostana 2 this year. However, the release dates for both movies haven't been announced yet.

Prior to this, he co-starred Sara Ali Khan in Love Aaj Kal 2020 movie which reportedly fails to meet expectations from the audience. Having said that, Kartik is still the number 1 loved face in Bollywood with over 18 million followers on Instagram.

In 2019, Kartik Aaryan was listed in Forbes India's Celebrity 100 with an annual income of $1.5 million, converted to 103.8 million rupees. His contract with Oppo is also reported to worth multi-crore but he opted to walk out of it.
