Kartik Aaryan hails from Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh and despite his modest beginnings, fame and popularity came to him early in his career. Being a complete stranger to the movie industry, his journey into films was certainly not an easy one.

Hailing from a small town, Kartik is aware of the lack of opportunities many may have experienced especially in fields of acting and sports. Apart from being an actor Kartik is also an avid football lover who plays the sport well for leisure. He is also a part of the Bollywood All Stars team with the likes of Ranbir Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor.

His biggest inspiration on field is none other than one of the world’s greatest footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo. Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s footsteps, the actor wants to make the sport available to the needy and contribute to the larger cause of sportsmanship.

He wants to take his love of football back to his hometown, where he is all set to setup a football centre. This centre is being opened for those who are skilled but may not have access or appropriate training for the sport.

The centre will give the beginners a centre to learn more about the sport and receive formal training which will eventually help them to shape a career as a sportsperson.

It’s wonderful to see Kartik so forthcoming for such a noble cause!
