Karan Johar and Dharma Production decided to replace Kartik Aaryan from Dostana 2 movie and will never be part of Dharma Production in future.
Reason why Dharam production decided not to work with Kartik Aaryan
There was an announcement in 2019 that Karan Johar finalized Kartik Aaryan for Dostana 2. But, shooting didn’t start due to pandemic. Now, when it was time to start shoot, Kartik Aaryan had problem with dates and had some creative issues.
1.Kartik Aaryan chose ‘Dhamaka’ over Dostana
Sources said, “As Kartik was tested positive for COVID, Karan didn’t force him for shoot as actor had genuine reason. But, as soon as Kartik became normal, he went to shoot for movie ‘Dhamaka’. Karan Johar disappointed with him as he promised to start Dostana 2 shoot.”
Karan Johar didn’t like Kartik Aaryan ‘s decision of choosing movie Dhamaka over Dostana 2.
2. Kartik Aaryan disappointed with Karan Johar
Kartik then did something unthinkable for Dharma Banner. Dharma Production decided to make ‘ Yoddha ‘ movie for which they approached Shahid Kapoor. Kartik disappointed as he was not approached for the role. This made fallout between Karan Johar and Kartik Aaryan.
3.Creative issuses with production
Another soursce said, ” Kartik Aaryan had creative issue with Dharma Production after 1.5 years of completing 20 days shoots. This never happened with Dharma Production where actor had issue with creative and walked out from production. It really made Karan Johar disappointing and he will never work with Kartik Aaryan again.
Now, Karan Johar started shoot of Mr. Lele with Janhvi Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal. Who will be the next actor in Dostana 2 is not decided yet.
