It could be true and authentic as even the news report is stating that Akshay to join Dostana 2 on Karan’s request post Kartik sacked.
After the exit of Kartik Aaryan from Dostana 2, the makers and creators are in a state of dilemma and problem as they haven’t yet found any other suitable actor to replace him in the film. For people who don’t know, Kartik had been removed and also dropped from the project as he left the film in middle and he was fired and banned from Dharma productions films in future due to his unprofessional behaviour and also irreconcilable creative differences as well.
But now, according to latest news report, actor Akshay Kumar is said to be joining cast of Dostana 2 after noted film maker Karan Johar personally requested him to come on board. Dharma Productions have asked Akshay Kumar to come and save them all from this tricky situation as they don’t really have any new lead actor at the present.
The source in his byte to a leading digital entertainment portal has been quoted saying, “Karan Johar has personally requested Akshay to come on board Dostana 2 and help him out, as lots of money has already been invested in the shoot of the film. So, in all likelihood, Akshay will join the cast”.
The source also went on to add, “Karan is even ready to make changes to the script — which was earlier written keeping Kartik in mind — so that it fits Akshay’s character”. However, even now an official statement from both the actor as well as the production house is awaited.
After it became official that Kartik Aaryan has been dropped from Dostana 2, the makers also ended up dropping an official statement mentioning about how there is going to be change in the cast. The statement 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”.
While Kartik Aaryan has made an exit, Janhvi Kapoor and debutante soon to be Bollywood actor Laksh Lalwani have been retained in the cast of Dostana 2 which is the sequel to the 2008 superhit film Dostana that had Abhishek Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and John Abraham in leading roles.
