Kartik Aaryan Lost Another Film After Dostana 2 And Freddie & Here’s What Happened
After exiting from Karan Johar’s Dostana 2 and then from Shah Rukh Khan’s production Freddie, now rumours are abuzz that actor might have lost yet another big project.
According to sources, Aaryan was roped in by filmmaker Aanand L Rai for his untitled production, the storyline of a gangster film. However, he is no longer a part of it.
According to HT, a source says, “Kartik was in advanced-level talks with Aanand, and had read the script and heard the narration, too. But, before he could sign on the dotted line, things fell apart.”
The reports of Aaryan and Rai teaming up for a film surfaced in February this year when the actor was snapped outside the filmmaker’s Mumbai office.
The source also adds, “The fact that Karan dropped Kartik seems to have influenced others. So, this could be the third instance where Kartik may be losing out on getting to work with an established filmmaker like Aanand.”
It was also said that the filmmaker has already replaced him with another actor. The source reveals, “Aanand is now considering for this film with who he had earlier collaborated on Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2017) and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan (2020), so it’s not a surprise if he may have readily come on board.”
When Rai was asked, he said nothing was formalized with Kartik Aaryan and mentioned, “As a production house, we work on several scripts and pitch it to actors — that’s the process. Actors keep meeting you, you keep telling them what you are working on, they express their desire to collaborate. And then, depending upon the subject, you decide if you should approach them. But that doesn’t mean you have signed them.”
When asked if Ayushmann Khurrana has come on board for the project, he said, “I have a story, which we would soon make with Ayushmann.”
