Rapper and singer Badshah had earlier raised eyebrows when he called Kartik Aaryan the most overrated actor in Bollywood during the Rapid Fire round on Koffee With Karan.
In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, the rapper-turned-actor admitted that he actually found him to be a brilliant actor. “I don’t know why I named him, maybe because we were talking about Kartik during the break. It just came out but the fact is that he is a brilliant actor with a very good script sense. When I told Kartik, I was acting, he joked, ‘Beta, ab tu dekh,'” Badshah said.
When Kartik appeared on Koffee With Karan and was told that Badshah found him overrated, the actor was quite surprised. “Badshah called me overrated? But I love his work. I really appreciate his music,” he said.
