Kartik Aaryan opens up on being an outsider in the industry 

According to Hindustan Times, Kartik Aaryan reflected on the outsider label and said, “It is what it is. When I started my journey in Bollywood, I didn't know anyone here. And the way it is going on to date, things are the same. Everything's the same for me. Some Fridays are successful and some are not. But the fact remains that I have never been an insider". 

He added, “It is a mindset which is going to stay with me. Till date, I believe that any Friday can be a last Friday also. This is the echo that keeps on going in my mind. Ke kahin mera pack up na ho jaaye (I hope it's not a pack up for my career)”.

He acknowledged that he is aware of his lack of backup and therefore emphasized his focus on working hard on each project he undertakes. He stated that he knows he doesn't have any other backup and might not get a second or third chance and said that this fear is constant in his mind.
