As soon as the news went viral, several reasons behind the shocking decision made the rounds on the Internet. 

Putting an end to all speculation, Dharma Productions has issued an official statement and confirmed that Dostana 2 will see a new cast now. The statement reads:

As per our exclusive information shared by a source close to Dharma Productions, the production house replaced Kartik Aaryan from Dostana 2 on grounds of unprofessional behaviour.

The source informed that after completing 20 days of shoot, Kartik started pointing out ‘creatives issues’ with the script and threw tantrums about the same. Besides, his repetitive schedule delays and cancellations hampered his co stars Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya. While Janhvi lost out on Mr. Lele due to schedule clash, Kartik’s behaviour also impacted Lakshya, who is making his debut with the film. 

As per the current scenario, Kartik has been dropped out of Dostana 2 and Dharma Productions has vowed to never work with the actor again in the future.

Besides Dostana 2, reports have it that Kartik Aaryan has lost out on yet another big film. A Pinkvilla report states that the actor has been removed from Sharan Sharma’s next film based on a cricket story.
