The Dharma productions movie Dostana 2 which was stalled in 2019 due to corona virus pandemic is facing new controversy. It has been reported that the lead actor Kartik Aaryan is now removed from the movie. The reason behind this is stated a fallout between the lead actor and Karan Johar due to creative differences.
Karan Johar has vowed never to work with the actor again. It is further revealed by the sources that “Kartik has expressed his creative differences regarding the script of Dostana 2 and also his agency was not giving dates for the shoot”. 20 days of shoot of the movie is already complete but now the actor has walked out of the movie. This has never happened in the history of the prestigious production house.
No response have been received from Kartik Aaryan and his team regarding the fallout. The movie which is sequal to 2008 blockbuster movie Dostana also stars Jahnavi Kapoor and Television actor Lakshya Lalwani (lead actor from the TV series Porus). It is not yet revealed who is going to replace the Pyar ka Punchnama franchise actor.
Karan Johar is already facing a lot of public outrage since the demise of Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput for supporting Nepotism in the film industry. Although Dharma Productions is blaming his unprofessional behaviour for the removal of the lead actor but now on replacing Kartik Aaryan who is an outsider Karan Johar is likely to receive more online trolling.
