"He is not your conventional Bollywood hero": Kartik on his character in Freddy
For Bollywood star Kartik Aaryan, working in his upcoming streaming movie `Freddy` came with a lot of self-exploration as he got to toy around with a different side of himself. In his opinion, the titular character is not a conventional Bollywood hero but someone with dark undertones.
The film is about the journey of Dr. Freddy Ginwala (played by Kartik), who is a shy, lonely and socially awkward person who loves playing with his miniature planes, the only friend he has is his pet turtle `Hardy`.
Giving a sneak peek of his character, Aaryan said: “The character is dark — he is not your conventional Bollywood hero. You wouldn`t consider him a hero at all. My character in Freddy helped me explore a different side of my craft and encouraged me to challenge my abilities at every step as an actor.”
