If Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan  Khan  made headlines ,  Kartik Aaryan  was  hands-down  the star of the year ,not only for his super-successful performance as a news anchor desperate  for TRPs in Netflix’s  Dhamaka, but also for signing  plum roles  and bagging some  of  the choicest  projects  obtainable in  Bollywood  during its critical post-Covid phase.
