Kartik said, “There were times when I didn’t get the proper results for it like earlier when my film became a hit, people could not recognize me even then and did not know my name,” he added. “So, they used to call me ‘monologue wala ladka or guy.’ They did not know my name for around 6-7 years when I was already doing films.
