In an interview, Kartik was aksed if he went from charging Rs 1 cr to a whopping Rs 40 Cr, the actor said, “Pyaar Ka Punchnama wasn’t Rs 1 crore. It was Rs 70,000. It’s all instinct, and it’s your choices that help you shoot up through the ranks.” Asked if the Rs 1 crore number was for his breakout film Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety, Kartik shook his head. “I didn’t make that much even for Sonu,” he further, adding, “I started making money only after Sonu…”

He continued, “Those days, I used to worry a lot about TDS. The tax would already be deducted from my paychecks. I made Rs 63,000 for Pyaar Ka Punchnama after taxes. TDS used to really worry me. I remember making Rs 1,500 for my first ad, and Rs 70,000 for the first film. And now, I’ve climbed up to this number…”

Kartik also revealed how he gave up his fees for the film Shehzada as it was going through some financial crunch due to the pandemic. He said, “I got a producer credit in the film because I let go of my fee. I did this when no one was talking about these things. Because they were falling short of finances, I let go off my remuneration. No one writes this about stars. It is not just me, a lot of stars do this and a lot bigger things. There is a simple mathematics. From directors, actors, to producers, everyone wants their films to work. No one wants to load their films. I don’t think anyone thinks, ‘No no, I will charge what I want to, film jaaye bhaad mein .”

In 2023, Kartik replied to claims that he had charged Rs 20 crore for only 10 days of work on Ram Madhvani's film Dhamaka. On the show Aap Ki Adalat, he stated, "Yes, during the Covid-19 pandemic, I shot for the film for 10 days and that was my remuneration." I double my producers' investment, so I believe I deserve what I'm paid. Producer Bhushan Kumar handed Kartik a sleek McLaren sports car when the film Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 became the industry's first blockbuster following the pandemic. He will next appear in the film Chandu Champion, directed by Kabir Khan.
