According to various reports, Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan being dropped from filmmaker Aanand L Rai’s upcoming production venture. On Monday, many reports suggesting the same had surfaced the internet. However, putting an end to these speculations, the production banner Colour Yellow Productions in a statement said the team is still in talks with the actor for a movie project. Kartik has lately been in the news for his exit from Karan Johar-produced “Dostana 2” and is reportedly no longer a part of Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming home production, titled “Freddie”.
Various media reports on Monday claimed that the 30-year-old actor has now lost Rai’s gangster drama film to Ayushmann Khurrana. Calling the stories “baseless”, the production house said they are in talks with both Aaryan and Khurrana for different projects.
“These are baseless rumours. We’ve met Kartik for a different film and we’re still talking. We’ve taken another film altogether to Ayushmann and this is a complete mix up,” spokesperson for Colour Yellow Productions said.
Last month, Johar’s Dharma productions had announced that they will be recasting “Dostana 2”, amidst reports of Aaryan being ousted from the film due to differences with the makers.
“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 statement from Dharma read.
Kartik Aaryan is awaiting the release of his next titled “Dhamaka”. The film is directed by Ram Madhvani. The thriller, backed by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Films, along with Madhvani and his wife Amita Madhvani, will release on Netlfix. He also has Anees Bazmee-directed “Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2”, the shooting of which came to a halt amid the second wave of coronavirus pandemic in India.
