Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan has been riding high on success ever since the release of ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’. However, it looks like Kartik and his team have to learn to hold their horses! As per reports Kartik Aaryan has been dropped like a hot potato from Karan Johar’s Dhrama production’s project due to a slight tiff with the producer.
A source from the Dharma Productions revealed to The Deccan Chronicle that Kartik was in the talks of playing the second lead in a film starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
As per the source, upon seeing the possibility of even featuring in a Dharma project Aaryan’s team released a report stating that the actor has been signed by Karan Johar, which obviously left Karan Johar infuriated. The report further served with some spice that Kartik Aaryan was going to paired opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan.
However, the trusted source cleared up the confusion by stating that Karan had never signed Kartik for a project but had only sent him feelers, but it was nothing concrete and also that the actor was supposed to play the second lead in the film! In fact, Kareena Kapoor Khan was paired opposite Akshay Kumar and not Kartik Aaryan in the Karan Johar produced film.
As per reports Kartik Aaryan even asked the producers for way too much moolah. A certain trade analyst stated, “He thinks he’s an A-list star now, and that he should be paid accordingly. Sadly, the producers don’t agree.”
Clearly this incident has left a sour taste in Karan Johar’s mouth. No wonder Kartik Aaryan was dropped from the project so abruptly.
While no details have been disclosed about the film as per a previous report in DNA Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer will be about couples struggling to have a baby. “The makers have roped in Akshay Kumar to play the male lead. The story is about two couples and they were looking for a senior actor opposite Bebo. Akshay was their first choice and he loved the script. He discussed the film with Karan, and the modalities were worked out immediately.”
The same report also stated that the film will feature a lot younger couple in the movie— perhaps this was the role offered to Kartik Aaryan?
Kartik was in news recently for reportedly hiking his fee to Rs 3 crore for the third part of Pyar Ka Punchnama. However, later the actor had clarified while dismissing the report. He was quoted by IANS, “There hasn’t been discussion between me and Luv (Ranjan) sir about money. So, I don’t know from where these kind of news (reports) are emerging. We both have started our respective careers together so there hasn’t been discussion about money and it will never be in the future as well. I just want to clarify that there is nothing wrong between me and Luv (Ranjan) sir. I think we both are same as we used to be earlier.”
