Kartik Aaryan Fans Trend #BoycottDostana2 As Reports State Karan Johar Fired Him

Actors getting fired from a movie/show is not new in the film industry. Even Ryan Gosling was fired from The Lovely Bones and was replaced by Mark Wahlberg. Now coming to Bollywood, the latest reports suggest that Kartik Aaryan got fired from Dostana 2. The film also stars Janhvi Kapoor and Laksh Lalwani.

Director Collin D’Cunha is helming the film, which Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions back. The film is a sequel to Dharma’s 2008 hit Dostana, starring Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan. So what led to the Love Aaj Kal star being ousted from the film? Keep reading.

Kartik Aaryan reportedly got fired from Dostana 2 due to his unprofessional behaviour. In fact, Dharma Productions and Karan Johar have vowed to never work with the actor again. A source told Bollywood Hungama, “For the longest time, Kartik gave a genuine reason of the Covid 19 pandemic not to start the shoot. He wanted to ensure safety, so Karan didn’t push him much. But when he shot for Dhamaka, Karan was upset. They had an indoor meeting where Karan expressed his disappointment.”

Kartik Aaryan was also upset with Dharma when they hired Shahid Kapoor to be a part of Shashank Khaitan’s Yoddha. Even when Kapoor backed out, the studio didn’t approach the Pati Patni Aur Woh actor. The source added, “since Kartik’s dates were not available for Dostana 2, Karan decided to go ahead and start Mr Lele with Vicky Kaushal and Janhvi Kapoor from April.”

“The moment Kartik got to know about this development, he informed the production house that the only dates available for Dostana 2 this year would be April onwards. Karan understood what Kartik was doing and quickly reprimanded him for the same. He was genuinely upset with Kartik as Janhvi had to pick between Dostana 2 and Mr Lele. The last we heard, Karan and Kartik are not speaking a word to each other,” mentioned the source.

As soon as the news broke out, angry fans started trending #BoycottDostana2 on social media. Many people have again accused Karan Johar of supporting nepotism and slammed him for firing Kartik Aaryan. One person tweeted, “Support for Kartik Aryan #BoycottDostona2.
