Kartik Aaryan is a versatile actor, who has made a big impact in the Bollywood industry thanks to his talents and hard work. The actor shot to fame for his great performances in films like Pyaar ka Punchnama, Sonu ki Tittu ki Sweety, etc.
On Friday, Karan Johar’s Dharma productions released the statement about recasting the lead role in their upcoming film “Dostana 2” starring Kartik Aaryan, for various “professional circumstances”. Sources suggest that the unprofessional behaviour of the actor forced the production house to take such a grave step. A lot of theories have sprung up following this news. Fans believe the recasting is just a step taken by Karan Johar to subdue the growth of Kartik Aaryan in Bollywood. Another source suggests the recasting could have a direct connection with the recent breakup between Janhvi Kapoor (lead actress in the movie) and Kartik. A source told the portal,” Kartik had made it impossible for her to do Shashank Khaitan’s film (then Mr Lele) and she lost the part to Kiara Advani. And now he is too arrogant to share a set with his ex”. A further source told, “The behaviours of Kartik towards Janhvi enraged the Dharma productions, who would never support an outsider over a nepo-kid like Janhvi”. As of now, Karan Johar has publicly tweeted that he is no longer interested in making any more films with Kartik in the near future.
On the other end of the spectrum, Kartik Aaryan has made no public comments or posted any tweets regarding this matter. His obvious silence in this matter is causing mixed emotions in the hearts of his fans. This one incident could be a major turning point in his career as Dharma productions are one of the most well-known production houses in the Indian film industry. According to fans, Kartik is well off without Karan Johar. As said by a Kartik-fan-girl, “He is a good actor who has proven his credibility over the years, and his raw talent will land him better opportunities in future. There is no doubt to that”.
