Enjoying every bit of success he has scored after 'Luka Chuppi' this year, actor Kartik Aaryan is aware that he needs to be more careful about his choices in the film industry now.

He says Ranbir Kapoor is one actor whose filmography he is envious of.

Excerpts from the interview:

From 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' (SKTKS) to 'Luka Chuppi', how would you describe your journey

so far?

It was quite tough because there was a lot of pressure post the big success of 'Sonu...'.

People were waiting to see what I'm going to do next.

I am sure some were also waiting to see me fall on my face (laughs).

Thankfully, 'Luka Chuppi' has passed all the tests of audience reviewers and box office.

Was this important for you?

Frankly, the success of 'Luka Chuppi' was very important for me.

I'm little relieved now! I can now breathe easy until my next release.

I'm sure it was essential for you to find a hit project after SKTKS. How were you sure 'Luka Chuppi' was it?

'Luka Chuppi' had a great mix of content with commercial sensibilities, which I really loved.

Also, the fact that it was catering to the whole family while being true to the romantic comedy genre.

That's a unique combination.

Guddu was such an innocent, lovable and dilwala character that I knew he will make a place for himself in audiences heart.

I never want to do anything sleazy or vulgar or anything that would the audience and shame my family.

How do you cope up with the attention? Does it get too much at times?

I love all kinds of attention.

It's never too much for me (laughs).

Love is one thing that we all crave for.

I feel fortunate to be loved.

I try to read every message in my inbox, be it on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter or the letters which I receive from the girls and kids.

It gives me great joy and it encourages me to do better things in life. Their love is a source of my energy.

Now when you look back on your journey from 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama', what do you feel about the struggle that you went through?

My past was filled with lots of ups and downs.

It has been quite a tough journey.

It took seven years for me to reach here. But thankfully, I never lost focus or patience and I kept working hard towards my goal.

Today, the result is in front of everyone.

I'm happy with my present.

But I know that from now onwards it's going to be more difficult because now I have certain expectations to fulfil.

I have to work harder now and be more careful with my choices.

Is Ranbir your role model?

I'd say every actor I've grown up watching from Mr.

Amitabh Bachchan to Ranbir and Ranveer are my role models.

And I hope one day some newly arrived actor will see me as a role model.
