ACTOR Sunny Singh says his Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 co-star and friend Kartik AAaryan is not his contemporary and that comparisons between them hold no importance. The actors have often featured together in movies, latest being Pati Patni Aur Woh where Sunny made a cameo appearance. Asked about feeling competitive, Sunny told: “Firstly, Kartik isn’t a contemporary. He is more like a brother. So, a comparison of any sort holds no i m p o r t a n c e . Secondly, Kartik and I are in completely different spaces.” “I think I am my sole competition and see only myself in my league. For me doing roles and having a constant connection with audience is important.
Our only common thread would be that we started our journey together with Luv sir’s (Ranjan) movie and henceforth created our own paths. As long as I give my 100 percent and I feel connected to it, I am happy. “It eventually comes down to the right timing and right scripts. Some may have two to three releases a year, some may have just one - luck changes with every Friday release. I am really happy with the kind of work Kartik is doing and it gives me immense joy every time I see him on screen,” he said about his Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety co-star.
Sunny will also reunite with his former Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 co-star Sonnalli Seygall in the upcoming film Jai Mummy Di. “Sonnalli has been a good performer ever since we worked together in our first project. With passing movie and more time, every actor grows and matures into being a better performer. Likewise, Sonnalli has become more mature. She is also very receptive to the emotions and the chemistry we share. It’s always fun to hang out with her on set, the environment on set is more like a family,” he said. Jai Mummy Di is his second film as a lead actor after Ujda Chaman.
Does he feel that he has arrived in Bollywood?“I don’t know if arrived is the right word. But all I can say is that I was looking out for movies that helped me understand my range as an actor and polish my acting abilities. On one side, I played a lead role in Ujda Chaman and also I did a special appearance in Pati Patni Aur Woh - solely because they were different genres,” he said.
