Back in 2019, with a grand announcement, Karan Johar introduced the cast of Dostana 2 where Kartik Aaryan joined forces with Dharma for the first time. However, as per some shocking development, it looks like things have gone astray for Kartik as he is no longer a part of the Dostana 2 venture.
As per the latest reports, Kartik has been fired from the Dharma Productions film due to the star’s “unprofessional behavior”. The whispers are that Dharma is replacing the actor in the Dostana sequel and started looking for someone so they can start from scratch. It is also been reported that Dharma Productions and Karan Johar’s other productions have decided never to work with the Punchnama baby ever again.

“After numerous queries from Kartik Aaryan’s talent agency KWAN, Dharma failed to get the schedule dates. Janhvi and Lakshya trying to accommodate dates amid their juggling schedules. The team was a mess after a point. Dharma Productions have now decided to officially not associate with Kartik ever in future,” said a source to Koimoi
The shooting of Dostana 2 was underway and Kartik had already shot 20 days of shoot for the film. It is rare to see a lead star being replaced by production midway but the lack of clarity on the date and unprofessional behavior of Kartik Aaryan pushed the makers to take the big step.
Janhvi Kapoor and newbie Lakshya are still part of the project. An official announcement on the issue is awaited.
