Rumours are abuzz that Kartik Aaryan not only lost out on Janhvi Kapoor’s Dostana 2 but he apparently also was replaced by Rajkummar Rao in Mr And Mrs Mahi. Read on for more details
Looks like a tough time has started rolling in for Kartik Aaryan as his rift with Karan Johar has cost him Dostaana 2 already and now here is another Dharma Productions film which he won’t be a part of titled Mr and Mrs Mahi.
Earlier, it was reported that Kartik ended his friendship with co-star Janhvi Kapoor in January. He reportedly avoided shooting for Dostana 2 citing the pandemic and eventually the shoot got delayed. Their fallout apparently made Kartik quite uncomfortable on the sets.
The report in a leading daily stated that Kartik was deeply affected by his sudden rift with Janhvi that prompted him to walk up to his director Collin D’Cunha to tell him to scrap the film. Janhvi and Kartik were reportedly not on talking terms during this time. He reportedly asked the makers to drop Janhvi from the film and in exchange, was ready to adjust his fees for Dostana 2.

This had unfortunately forced Karan Johar to make a tough call to drop Kartik Aaryan and find his replacement. Kartik had finished shooting 60 percent of the film and replacing him would mean an increase in the film’s budget. But Karan was apparently ready to shell out money from his pockets and do the re-shoots with a new actor. Several names such as Akshay Kumar, Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan, Rajkummar Rao and Siddhant Chaturvedi have come forward as Kartik’s replacement.
Kartik recently broke his silence over the negative stories about him that deeply affected his family members. A lot of times you ask yourself, ‘Why is this happening?’ But more than himself, he feel for his family, because they don’t belong to this world. He belongs to this industry, so he know that as long as you concentrate on your work, nothing else matters. But his family gets affected, and that’s the only thing he’s worried about. Other than that, it doesn’t matter. He knows that his work will always speak volumes. If he falls short on that front, he wants to improve himself. Kartik told RJ Siddharth Kannan.
