Bhool Bhulaiya 2 actor, Kartik Aaryan, gets praised by his fans, after he rejected a deal worth around ₹8-9 Cr which required him to endorse paan masala. Well, according to reports, the actor has turned down a tobacco promotion deal offering him crores.
Kartik Aaryan Refused To Endorse Tobacco Brand
According to Bollywood Hungama, a guru affirmed this news and asserted, “That’s right. That boy Kartik Aaryan has said no to around Rs. 8-9 crore offer to endorse paan masala. Kartik seems to have principles, a rare commodity in today’s actors who suffer from the gift of the ‘grab’. Saying no to such big money is not easy. But Kartik is conscious of his responsibility as a youth icon.”
Well, with this decision Kartik Aaryan has joined the league of actors who refused to endorse tobacco and paan masala. Called ‘man of principles’, Kartik has joined the special class of actors like Allu Arjun who refused a similar deal worth ₹10 Cr which required him to promote the tobacco brand publicly.
Earlier, actors such as Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan had accepted the lucrative offers of Tobacco brands to promote them, for which Akshay Kumar later faced criticism. He then later apologises, “I would like to apologise to you, all my fans and well-wishers. Your reaction over the past few days has deeply affected me,” read an excerpt from his post and stated that he has “decided to contribute to the entire endorsement fee towards a worthy cause.”
Meanwhile, as for work goes, Kartiak has just finished a shoot for Shehzada, he shared a post with captions, “Insomniac like me slept for Ten hrs after the Epic Climax. that we shot for #Shehzada filled with Action which I have done for the first time🤞🏻One of the most difficult, hectic and again a new zone for me. Just can’t wait for you guys to see it. Meri sabse Commercial picture aa rahi hai.”
