Kartik Aaryan not a star because of me: Luv Ranjan
Filmmaker Luv Ranjan, who is currently enjoying the success of De De Pyaar De, has often been accused of making misogynistic films.
He has previously had a successful run at the box office with films like Pyaar Ka Punchnama and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, to name a few.
However, in his defense, he says “A lot of people say my films are misogynistic, but I don’t believe it. Either you are saying all women in the world are nice, or you are saying it is possible.”
Not only is Ranjan a filmmaker, he is also the man who discovered Kartik Aaryan. And while many believe that actors change after attaining stardom, Ranjan is not one of them.
“It’s the same,” he said, adding, “It’s a misconception that he is a star because of me. Nobody is a star because of anyone. I was a new director when I cast him, so I must have seen something in him. I was not doing any favours. People say actors change once they become stars, but it’s wrong. People don’t change, it’s always you who changes.”
