Kartik Aaryan had a big night at the inaugural OTTplay Awards on Saturday. The actor won the grand prize for Best Actor for his performance in the Netflix movie Dhamaka. And while that was enough to get his fans excited, many found another reason. Through the awards function, Kartik sat next to his ex-girlfriend Sara Ali Khan. A video of the two talking appeared online, making fans wonder if they were ever together again. Read too: Kartik Aaryan Reveals If He Lied About Dating Sara Ali Khan
Kartik and Sara met while filming Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal and began dating during the film’s production. However, the two actors split shortly before the film’s release. The two reconnected earlier this year at an awards ceremony and are known to interact at public events. However, at the 2022 OTTplay Awards on Saturday, the two sat at the table together and were busy talking.
Later in the night, when Kartik won the award for Best Male Actor – Popular (Movie), Sara clapped her hands for him and congratulated him as he stood up to accept the award. The roles were reversed when Sara Ali Khan won the Breakthrough Performance of the Year Female award for Atrangi Re, and it was Kartik’s turn to applaud. Fans of the actors appreciated how cordial and friendly they seemed despite not being together. “This is so nice to see. No enmity, just friendship,” wrote one fan.
Many others, however, wondered if the two had rekindled their romance. “Are these two together again?” Some recalled Sara’s veiled comments about her ex on Koffee With Karan ‘being everyone’s ex’ that many assumed were for Kartik. “Looks like these KWK comments have been forgotten,” wrote one fan.
Reacting to reports that Kartik had been ‘dishonest’ in a previous relationship, Kartik told Film Companion: “Mai pichle sava saal se single hoon, baaki mujhe kuch nahi pataa (I’ve been single since the last 1.25 years, don’t know about anything else).” When told that 1.25 is a very specific timeline, Kartik couldn’t say anything but blush.
