Kartik Aaryan hails from the charming small town of Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh and despite his modest beginnings, the actor’s fame and popularity came early in his career. Being a complete stranger to the movie industry, his journey into films was certainly not an easy one. Hailing from a small town, Kartik is aware of the lack of opportunities many may have especially in fields of acting and sports. Apart from being an actor Kartik is also an avid football lover who plays the sport well for leisure. He is also a part of the Bollywood All Stars team with the likes of Ranbir Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor.
Kartik’s biggest inspiration on field is none other than one of the world’s greatest footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo. And walking on same path as Ronaldo, the actor wants to make the sport available to the needy and contribute to the larger cause of sportsmanship. He wants to take his love of football back to his hometown, where he is all set to setup a football centre. This centre is being opened for those who are skilled but may not have access or appropriate training for the sport. The centre will give young kids from across, a centre to learn more about the sport receive formal training and even help them to shape a career as a sportsperson. It’s wonderful to see Kartik, for coming forward with such a noble cause!
