Ever since making his debut in Bollywood with the 2011 movie Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Kartik Aaryan has come a long way. He has cemented his place in the Hindi film industry and surely has a long way to go. In fact, he is also among the bankable stars in B-Town which is why he has a few movies safe in his kitty. However, hearsay suggests that Kartik Aaryan will no longer be a part of Dostana 2.
The sources close to the movie have allegedly revealed that the 30-year-old actor has been replaced from the movie. The reports also claim that Dharma Productions will no longer work with Kartik Aaryan again in the future.
A few reports claim that the decision was taken after an alleged fallout between Kartik and filmmaker Karan Johar. The sources say that the reason behind the same was due to the creative differences. It is also reported that Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik also have had a fallout.
The movie was announced two years ago but the production of the same was halted due to the lockdown measures. Reportedly, Kartik Aaryan had problems with his dates and schedule, and later on, he started to have creative issues.
Some sources even say that Kartik’s decision to wrap up Ram Madhavani’s film Dhamaka has annoyed Karan Johar. Earlier, the actor said that he will not be able to work as he has been tested positive for the ongoing infection.
It was a genuine reason and filmmaker Karan Johar didn’t push him much. But when Kartik went ahead and filmed Dhamaka, the ace filmmaker was upset. The hearsay has it that KJo and Kartik had a meeting indoors wherein the former expressed his disappointment.
Speaking of other rumours floating around, some allege that Kartik got really upset with Dharma approaching Shahid Kapoor for Shashank Khaitan’s Yoddha. Although Shahid quit the movie, they never went to Kartik for the role.
The sources say that Kartik didn’t have dates for Dostana 2, so Karan Johar decided to go ahead with Mr. Lele with Vicky Kaushal and Janhvi Kapoor. When Kartik got to know about the same, he allegedly informed that he has dates free and will start working from April onwards.
The ace filmmaker instantly realised what the actor was doing and quickly reprimanded him for the same. KJo is genuinely upset with Kartik as Janhvi had to choose between Dostana 2 and Mr. Lele.
Well, neither the producer nor the actor has addressed the reports and many are hoping that it is not true.
