Actor Kartik Aaryan continues to maintain silence on his exit from Karan Johar’s ‘Dostana 2’. The actor was set to star in the movie alongside Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya in the movie backed by KJo’s Dharma Productions. It was reported earlier this year that Aaryan was no longer a part of the movie. When asked at a recent event about the movie, he said he will not talk about his exit from the movie.
“I am not a part of any Bollywood camps. I have reached here because of my talent. And I will do the same in the future. I don’t want to comment on Karan Johar’s film ‘Dostana’,” he said. Announced in 2019, the production of ‘Dostana 2’ came to a standstill owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. While the production house was yet to resume filming, reports suggested that Kartik and KJo have had a fallout leading to the actor’s exit from the project.
While neither has reacted to the reports, Dharma issued a statement announcing a recast of the film. It read, “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.”
'Dostana 2’ is the sequel to Karan's 2008 film ‘Dostana’. The film starred Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham in the lead.
