If you are waiting for someone to bring you gifts this Christmas, you can ping Kartik Aaryan, for he is your Santa Claus for the year. No, we are not claiming it, the actor has actually called himself Santa on social media. And we already have someone making demands of Santa Kartik. None other than Deepika Padukone.

Kartik took to Instagram to share a photo of himself and said, “Y fear when Santa is here, kis kis ko gift chahiye (sic).” In the picture, Kartik can be seen wearing a red Santa cap, in keeping with the spirit of Christmas.

Seeing his post, Deepika grabbed the opportunity and requested Kartik to watch her upcoming film Chhapaak in theatres, which is set to release on January 10, 2020. She wrote, “Mujhe! Jaake Chhapaak dekhiye.”

This was followed by Kartik’s reply that read, “Woh toh humare liye gift hai. Can’t wait to watch it.”

Kartik and Deepika have been hogging the limelight since she asked him to teach her the hook step of Dheeme Dheeme as the actress wanted to be a part of the dance challenge. Her wish came true when the duo had an impromptu dance performance at the Mumbai airport. Videos of them dancing together instantly went viral on social media.

Deepika and Kartik also attended celebrity manager Rohini Iyer’s house party on December 14 with other industry colleagues, including Hrithik Roshan, Bhumi Pednekar, Ananya Panday, Taapsee Pannu, Radhika Apte, Anil Kapoor and others.

Kartik, who is currently shooting for his upcoming film Dostana 2 with Janhvi Kapoor, also shared a boomerang video of the team wishing Merry Christmas.

As for Deepika Padukone, she is essaying the role of Malti, an acid-attack survivor in Meghna Gulzar’s directorial venture Chhapaak.

Her role is based on the real-life incident which happened with Laxmi Agarwal at the age of 15. The film stars Vikrant Massey opposite Deepika as Amol, a character based on Alok Dixit, who later tied the knot with Laxmi.
