Much to his fan's dismay, Kartik Aaryan won't be able to perform at the 19th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards, scheduled to take place in Bangkok on June 24, reports mid-day. Kartik's doctors have advised him to stay away from strenuous activities due to his ligament injury. A source close to the actor told mid-day:
"Too much exertion has caused his old pain to resurface. Kartik had continued playing football over the past few weeks, which only aggravated his condition. He has been recommended physiotherapy and has been advised against any strenuous physical activity. Once back from Bangkok, he will be taking the opinion of a few seasoned orthopedists in the city."
However, we do have good news for Kartik's fans
