“Yeah, tell him na!”- remember that spark in Sara Ali Khan’s eyes when she, without any fear or restrictions spoke about her fondness towards Kartik Aaryan on Karan Johar’s, Koffee With Karan season 6? In a moment, this piece of news about the then soon-to-be-debutante had created a stir in the media. This was followed by Kartik Aaryan going all-blushy at the Lux Style Awards when asked if he wanted to go on a date with Sara. As much as we were rooting for these two stars to actually go on a coffee date, it was one fine evening when Ranveer Singh had made hand-hearts in the background when Sara and Kartik met for the first time.

And it was soon after when we were overjoyed to hear that Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan would soon appear as the leading stars in Imtiaz Ali’s Aaj Kal. As much as we were hoping and praying to the universe for their ‘off-screen’ chemistry, what looks like it, Sara and Kartik is indeed a real-life couple! From laughing their heart out, protecting Sara from the mob, pose for ‘couple on a honeymoon’ kind of picture, gelling with the brother and cheering for ‘his girl’, Sara when she made her debut on the ramp as a showstopper, Sartik (as their fans fondly call them) are pure love!
‘Pure love’ is not just an adjective that we are using in here but we have an instance that can prove you so! Sara is completely in awe of her mommy, Amrita Singh and has self-admittedly said that she would never want to stay away from her, even after marriage. Hence, when she was shooting for her next with Kartik in Himachal, she would often FaceTime her mother, Amrita Singh and her ‘rumoured’ beau would also join in to talk to her! A source has shared with BollywoodLife, “Sara was away shooting in Himachal Pradesh for a long time for Love Aaj Kal. She would FaceTime with her mom daily as and when she was free. Even Kartik Aaryan would join in the conversations at times. Amrita ji did not mind and would chat with him as well."
Soon after Sara Ali Khan had expressed her fondness towards Kartik Aaryan, rumours arose that the latter was apparently dating Ananya Panday when the Pati, Patni Aur Woh co-stars-cum-friends was spotted were spotted coming out of a dinner date. It really does feel bad when we see our crushes go on dinners with some other girl, and hence, in an interaction on Famously Filmfare, the Kedarnath actress was quoted as saying, “I find Kartik cute. It's a Sara-Sara thing. So how does it matter if he finds some other person whose name starts and ends with A. That's good for him.” At yet another interview, when Sara was asked to DM Kartik Aaryan for a date, she had said, “No, no, no... how much! I have said it everywhere. Itna bhi desparate nahi. Mom said you must wait. So, I am waiting!” And how correctly Sara proved the proverb just as right, ‘patience always bears fruit’!

It all started at Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee With Karan, season 6, when during one of the most-awaited and fun segments of the show, Rapid Fire, Karan had asked Sara to name the actor she would like to date. To this, Sara had at once replied, "I want to marry Ranbir Kapoor. I don't want to date him. I want to date Kartik Aaryan." Karan had further added, “I’m sure he wouldn’t mind dating you. Should I take the proposal?” An excited Sara had then exclaimed, “Tell him, na!” When probed further if Sara likes Kartik's big hair, she had answered “Yeah!”
Later, when Kartik Aaryan appeared on Koffee With Karan season 6 with Kriti Sanon, he had an amazing reply to Saif’s answer when he questioned and answered at the same time, “Does he have money? Then take her!” He had blushingly replied, “So, what I'm doing is, sir, I'm just trying to, you know, earn more and more money right now. Saif (Ali Khan) sir said, 'Does he have the money?' So, I'm just..." Karan had interjected here and further probed, “And, you clearly don't have the money that can match the Prince of Pataudi.” To this, Kartik had answered, “I don't know. She is a princess. So, you know, to ask her out on a date, you know, I would require a certain bank balance.”
Kartik Aaryan had already created quite a buzz for himself with the trailer launch of his last release film, Luka Chuppi with Kriti Sanon. At the launch, Kartik had shared about his mom that she is super-friendly with all his exes. He had stated, “Whenever I get into a relationship, my mother ends up befriending my girl. And later if something goes wrong between me and my girlfriend, my mom continues to remain friends with her and then that gets really awkward between me my mom and my girlfriend or ex-girlfriend (Laughs). So that has always been a problem. Live-in has never been the case for me as yet but I would wish to explore it."

Kartik Aaryan had also revealed that his mother is always aware of his girlfriends. He had shared, “She knows everything about my life — not just career but even my personal life. Whichever girls I was friends with or dated, she knows them all. She’d add them on Facebook and then starts chatting with them (laughs). Woh sab social media platforms par hain, unhe bahut shauk hai. She is very informed that way and she has learned it from me.”
Now that the family too is slowly getting involved, we are very sure that Kartik and Sara have a long way to go! What say, peeps?
