On Friday morning there were reports suggesting that Kartik Aaryan has been removed from Karan Johar's Dostana 2. It is believed that the actor had already shot for 20 days, but differences seem to have emerged between the makers and the actor. At evening, Dharma Productions officially announced that Kartik will no longer star in the sequel of 2008 hit, Dostana.
"Due to professional circumstances, on which we have decided to maintain a dignified silence -- we will be recasting Dostana 2, directed by Collin D'Cunha. Please wait for the official announcement soon," read a statement by Dharma Productions. Have a look:

Now, it seems Karan Johar has unfollowed Kartik on Instagram. We don’t know whether he was following him before. On the other hand, Kartik is still following the filmmaker.
"Kartik is not part of 'Dostana 2' anymore and Dharma Productions will not be working with him again. After 20 days of shoot, he had issues with script and felt that it was not okay. This was strange as he had gone through the script one to one and a half years back," a source said, as reported by IANS. The source also said that that the actor was also not allotting dates to the project.
"Dharma productions has been in touch with Kwan Talent Management Agency, who manages Kartik. But there was no reply for dates," the source added. There is no official statement from Kartik and his team on his ouster.
Dostana 2 also stars actress Janhvi Kapoor. The film's shoot had begun in Amritsar but was halted due to the pandemic.
We have to now wait and see who will be Kartik’s replacement.
