While Kartik Aaryan replaces Akshay Kumar in back to back films, Shilpa Shetty’s old video predicting this goes viral
Many years ago, Shilpa Shetty had referred to Kartik Aaryan as a ‘younger Akshay Kumar’. Today, the actor is replacing Bollywood’s Khiladi in one project after another. Coincidence?
When it was announced that Kartik Aaryan will be headlining the sequel of Bhool Bhulaiyaa instead of Akshay Kumar , fans had their doubts. However, the horror comedy emerged to be even more successful than the original. Recently the two actors made headlines once again when it was reported that Kartik will be replacing Bollywood’s Khiladi in Hera Pheri 3 . In an interview Akshay shared that he was not happy with the screenplay so he backed out. But buzz suggests that he was replaced because he demanded an insane fee.
It was reported that Akshay demanded 90 crores to reprise the role of Raju. Kartik, on the other hand, apparently agreed to be a part of Hera Pheri 3 for just 30 crores. Soon there was buzz that Kartik will also be replacing Akshay in Housefull 5. Well, amid all this, an old video of Shilpa Shetty calling Kartik ‘younger Akshay Kumar’ has resurfaced on the internet. In this clip from an episode of Super Dancer 3, Shilpa left Kartik blushing when she stated, “KA reminds me of AK, like Akshay Kumar the younger Akshay Kumar.”
Kartik had shared this video on his official social media handle 3 years ago, along with a caption which read: “KA reminds #ShilpaShetty of AK...... Like the Younger Akshay Kumar Sir ❤️ This is a huge compliment ❤️ Thank you Super Se Uperrrr @theshilpashetty ❤️ #PosterLagwaDo.” Back then, many netizens had agreed with the actress’ statement. In a way, can we say that this is Shilpa’s prediction coming true? How crazy is that!
Well, Kartik is currently one of the busiest actors of Bollywood with a hectic schedule planned ahead. After emerging as ‘janta ka superstar’ with Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, the actor will next be seen as a dentist in romantic thriller Freddy. He also has Shehzada, Satyaprem Ki Katha, Captain India and Aashiqui 3 in his kitty.
