It was in 2019 that Kartik Aaryan took to Instagram to announce that he has been locked for Karan Johar’s Dostana 2 and was super excited to be a part of the sequel of the 2008 popular movie. He was to share the screen space with Janhvi Kapoor.View this post on Instagram
Cut to 2021, things are not even remotely close to how they were. Just yesterday, it was revealed that Kartik has been dropped from the movie and sources told that it was because of his unprofessional attitude, the production house decided to end the chapter, and Karan vowed never to work with him.
DNA had quoted a source close to the production house saying, “Dharma has decided to replace Kartik Aaryan in Dostana 2. Kartik expressed creative differences over the script of Dostana 2 after one and a half years. However, he completed nearly 20 days of shoot in 2019 after reading the same script and agreeing to it.”View this post on Instagram
Now, things have got clearer and murkier as Karan decided to unfollow Kartik on Instagram putting a stamp on the reports that were floating around yesterday.

From the industry, Kangana Ranaut came in support of Kartik and bashed Karan mercilessly for how he is treating the actor. She wrote, “Kartik has come this far on his own, on his own he will continue to do so, only request to papa jo and his nepo gang club is please leave him alone like Sushant don’t go after him and force him to hang himself. Leave him alone you vultures, get lost chindi nepos...Kartik no need to be scared of these chillars.... after doing nasty articles and releasing announcements blaming only your attitude for fall out this moron wants to maintain a dignified silence. They spread same stories of drug addiction and unprofessional behavior for SSR also.”
She further wrote, "Know that we are with you, the one who did not make you can’t break you either, today you must be feeling lonely and targeted from all corners. No need to feel so, everyone knows this drama queen JO, you will do very well dear, trust your instincts, and be disciplined. much love."
