Kartik Aryan made his debut in Bollywood back in 2011 with comedy film ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’. Thereafter, he appeared on screen in a number of other films, not very frequently though. And then, we saw him in the lead role in ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’. This again was a comedy film and did fairly well at the box office. This film proved to be a turning point in Kartik Aryan’s career.
A little while ago, there was a buzz that Kartik Aryan is about to get another big film. Reportedly, the film was offered to him by none other than Karan Johar. It was also rumored that he would be cast opposite Kareena Kapoor and Akshay Kumar would also be a part of the project.
However, later, it turned out that all did not go as expected and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions did not sign Kartik Aryan for the said project. The reasons behind the same are finally revealed.
As per a report by Bollywood Hungama, after Kartik learned about a possible role with Dharma Productions, his team turned over-enthusiastic and sprang into action instantly. A source from Dharma Productions said:
‘Kartik had been sent feelers from Dharma to meet for a possible role, nothing concrete. But his team messed it up by splashing the news that he had been signed by Karan Johar. No such thing had actually happened. As if this was not enough to piss off Karan, Kartik’s team also leaked out the false news that Kartik was going to be paired with Kareena Kapoor, when she was actually opposite Akshay in the film.’
If reports are to be believed, Kartik Aryan thought that he was an A-lister now and asked for too much money.
‘He thinks he’s an A-list star now and should be paid accordingly. Sadly the producers don’t agree.’
These reasons led to Kartik being dropped out of the Karan Johar film!
