Recently, news broke out that Kartik Aaryan is no longer a part of Karan Johar’s upcoming movie Dostana 2. The fans of Karan Johar and Kartik Aaryan are disappointed with the news. Now, the real reason came out why Kartik Aaryan is no longer a part of Karan Johar’s project Dostana 2. According to Bollywood Hungama,
“Kartik Aaryan had come on board Dostana 2 in 2019 for a minimal amount of Rs. 2-3 crores, and at present his market value is upside of Rs. 10 crores. At first, he asked Karan for a hike in his acting fees mid-way as his market value had gone up big time in the last two years. While Karan believed it was unprofessional on Kartik’s part to renegotiate the remuneration mid-way, he tried to compensate him with another film, Mr Lele. Kartik also agreed to come on board the said film and was all charged up for a quirky ride. But to his surprise, he found himself replaced all of a sudden by Vicky Kaushal without being notified. Kartik was also upset with Dharma Productions when they gave Shashank Khaitan’s Yoddha to Shahid Kapoor.”
The source continued,
“Meanwhile, Kartik continued giving reasons of the Covid 19 pandemic to not start shoot for Dostana 2 and Karan didn’t push him much either given their relationship. But when he shot for Dhamaka, Karan was upset. They had an indoor meeting where Karan expressed his disappointment.”
The source added that there is a lack of trust between Karan Johar and Kartik Aaryan. He said,
“Karan felt there was a total lack of trust and couldn’t commit to the film until the script and screenplay were locked.”
Karan Johar felt unprofessional with Kartik Aaryan’s behavior and that led to a fallout between the two people.
“Karan felt it was unprofessional on Kartik’s end to arm-twist, and this finally led to a big fall out between the two, with things going ugly. Kartik on the other hand felt he was horribly underpaid for the job, as he was definitely the biggest selling point of the film and Karan was not keeping up his promise of a second film. Kartik also developed some issues with Janhvi Kapoor, due to their break up and it all culminated into a big fight, with money, like always coming in the centre. All issues might have been resolved, but unprofessionalism took things to a different tangent and Karan was left with no choice but to oust him from Dostana 2.”
Dostana 2 will not have Kartik Aaryan now and we will see Lakshya and Janhv Kapoor along with a new actor. Which side you guys are on? Let us know in the comments below.
