The smart-aleck cartoon rabbit, who’s known more for his one-liners and monologue than anything else. Kartik’s claim to fame too has been his rant against girls in Pyaar Ka Punchnama 1 and 2. Naysayers have called his film choices misogynistic but so far, they’ve worked big time. Both Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Luka Chuppi entered the 100-crore club, making him the toast of every big banner in the industry.

DEVVRATH ARORA X FACTOR: FOLLOWS HIS HEART He grew up in Delhi and went on to study Law. But the love for the camera was something Devvrath Arora found hard to resist.

hello brother!

Rohit Saraf found a sort of closure when he played Zaira Wasim’s brother, Ishaan Chaudhary, in the recently released The Sky Is Pink. “I lost my dad when I was 11. I couldn’t imagine living without him. So the moment I heard the story it connected with me,” he says. This Shonali Bose directorial is based on the family of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary, who died in 2015 at the age of 18 after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. “I read everything I could find about Aisha. I watched all her videos. I got extremely attached to her,” says the 22-year-old actor revealing how he prepared for the the emotionally-wrenching role. Rohit even met Aisha’s real brother before the shoot to prepare himself. “I LOST MY DAD WHEN I WAS 11.…
