The only news on anyone’s lips in the past couple of days has been the one about actor Kartik Aaryan being fired from Dharma Productions’ highly-awaited Dostana 2. According to all news portals, Aaryan was replaced because of his alleged “unprofessional behaviour” and there’s also talk that he wasn’t giving the team dates to shoot the film. Dostana 2 is a standalone sequel to the hugely famous film, Dostana which starred Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead roles. “It’s strange for an outsider like Kartik to give such attitude to a nepo kid like Janhvi and a producer like Dharma. This, after shooting for 20 days. It will cost us crores and also put on hold the career of Lakshya who was making his debut. Janhvi is a star and will go on to do other big films,” a source told PeepingMoon while a trade analyst told the website that “despite all the nepotism noise, Karan Johar chose an outsider to frontline one his most awaited sequels. Kartik will regret this. Dharma is a big production house. Look what Dostana in 2008 did to John Abraham’s career.”

Media portals have also reported that Dharma Productions will face a loss of Rs 20 crores due to this mess but they are willing to start anew if it means they can work without toxicity. Dharma Productions also put all rumours to rest when they issued a response. “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,” the production house said, in a statement.
