He is already known for his acting chops, his comic timing, his onscreen romantic vibes with his co-stars and for being an outsider who stormed Bollywood. Now Kartik Aaryan is out to prove himself one of the best dancers in the Hindi film industry. His killer moves in an Instagram post on Thursday where we see Kartik grooving like a pro to the sound of the Allu Arjun dance number Butta bomma, composed by S Thaman and sung by Mumbai’s Armaan malik for Allu Arjun’s Telugu blockbuster Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, has taken the internet by storm.
Colleagues Varun Dhawan and Rakul Preet Singh have praised the video to the skies. Lauren Gottlieb who is herself a superlative dancer wrote, “WHOA! I’ve never seen a Bollywood actor hit and control moves the way you do Let’s gooooo!!!.” Fans in thousands have gone crazy over Kartik’s pitch-perfect steps that seem to suggest a lot of rehearsal went into getting them right. But sources close to Kartik pooh-pooh the prolonged-mehnat theory.
“He is a natural. One of the best dancers among contemporary actors. It’s just that the dancing skills have not been tapped extensively in his films. Watch him in his forthcoming films. Kartik will burn a hole in the dancefloor,” says a source. Sources say Kartik has signed on the Hindi remake of Allu Arjun’s Telugu hit Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo where he will not replicate Allu Arjun’s spectacular dance moves but bring his own style to the table. “Kartik will do his own thing. With the Hindi remake of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo he aims to consolidate his position as a dancing superstar,” says a source in the know.
