Aanand Rai's Team Reacts to Report About Kartik Losing Out on Film
A report has claimed that Kartik Aaryan has been dropped from Aanand L Rai's upcoming project.
Aanand L Rai's production house Colour Yellow has issued a statement about a report claiming that Kartik Aaryan is no longer part of Rai's film. The report comes after Kartik was replaced in Dostana 2 and has supposedly been ousted from Shah Rukh Khan's production Freddie.
"These are baseless rumours. We’ve met Kartik Aaryan for a different film and we’re still talking. We’ve taken another film altogether to Ayushmann Khurrana and this is a mix up".Colour Yellow Spokesperson
As per a report by Hindustan Times, Kartik was brought on board by Aanand L Rai for his yet-to-be-titled gangster film, but they are no longer collaborating
"Kartik had heard the narration and was in advanced level talks with Aanand L Rai about the movie. However, before he could sign the contract things fell apart", a source told the publication.
The source added, "The fact that Karan Johar dropped Kartik Aaryan seems to have prompted others".
Earlier, a report claimed that Kartik was removed from Freddie because he wanted the script changed despite having approved it before signing the film. The report added that Kartik returned the signing amount of 2 crore to the production house after his exit.
Kartik plays the lead in Ram Madhvani's upcoming action thriller titled Dhamaka. He also has Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 in the pipeline.
