Bollywood Heart-Throb Kartik Aaryan Stops Endorsing Oppo Because It’s Chinese

Hanima Anand |Jul 10, 2020

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 stops working with Chinese brand

The picture captures Bollywood actor taking photos of the clouds, but what makes it special is the phone brand he’s using.

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.

As a confirmation, his phone using in the latest post is not an Oppo, but an iPhone product.

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.

Mobile phone brands from China

For your information, we have combined here the list of mobile phone brands from China. Some of these are extremely popular in India or other parts of the world.

Though we may not be able to replace these phone brands with our local products in one or two days, users are highly recommended to protect their personal data while using these phones. Several Chinese mobile services have been reported to transmit information to Chinese hosts without knowledge of phone owners.

Chinese Mobile Brands
Either Oppo, Redmi (Xiaomi), or Vivo is from China.

We list here the most popular mobile phone brands from China.

  • Amoi
  • BBK
  • Honor
  • Huawei
  • Konka
  • Meitu
  • OnePlus
  • Oppo
  • Realme
  • TCL
  • Vivo
  • Vsun
  • Xiaomi
  • ZTE

So, Kartik Aaryan has made an example of dropping Chinese brands out of our daily life. This is not a boycott action, instead, it gives chance for local startups to develop as well as create a fair-play market for all other products in India.
