April 17 : After Dharma Productions has officially announced that Kartik Aaryan will be replaced in Dostana 2, the much awaited film has been in the headlines once again. While Kartik’s fans are flooding social media with their reactions against the move taken by Dharma Productions’ head Karan Johar, Kangana Ranaut has also come out strongly against the new development.
Dostana 2 is helmed by Collin D'Cunha, and stars Kartik Aaryan, Janhvi Kapoor, and Lakshya. In 2019, Karan Johar had announced the star cast and since then fans have been eagerly waiting for the film to complete and release. After several delays, half of the film was finally completed after braving the coronavirus pandemic last year.
After Dharma Productions on Friday evening announced in a tweet that that the lead actor of the film, Kartik Aaryan, has been dropped and he will no longer be a part of the film, Kangana came out strongly against Karan Johar and his production company. It is well known that Kangana is dead against Karan and never misses an opportunity to slam him on social media.
The Panga actress took to her Twitter account and 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...”
In a separate tweet, Kangana addressed Kartik and wrote, “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 dignified silence. They spread same stories of drug addiction and unprofessional behaviour for SSR also.”
The actress 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.”
Earlier, on Friday evening, Karan’s production company tweeted a statement that 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.”
Reports suggest that Dharma Production is now considering a few names like Rajkummar Rao and Vicky Kaushal as options to replace Kartik in Dostana 2.
