Was Katrina Kaif too 'OLD' to romance Kartik Aaryan ? Was this the reason to quit Shah Rukh Khan’s film
Actor Kartik Aaryan opts out of Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies project and returns the signing amount of Rs. 2 cr; here's why
Last month, it was reported that Kartik Aaryan had been ousted from Karan Johar’s production Dostana 2. The actor, who was supposed to play the lead in Dharma Productions’ much talked about Dostana 2 with Janhvi Kapoor, was replaced.
Dharma Productions later released a statement about recasting for the film due to professional reasons. While the news came as a shock for Kartik’s fans, it is reported that the Pyaar Ka Punchnama actor has lost out on another big project.
Today, we hear that Kartik has walked out of another film. If reports are to be believed, Kartik has opted out of the Red Chillies film that Ajay Bahl was directing and returned the signing amount Rs 2cr.
The movie tentatively titled was Goodbye Freddie, the film also features Katrina Kaif. According to Times Of India, sources close to the production house said Kartik had creative concerns and was not pleased with the script.
Creative difference cropped up in the last 15 days when Kartik showed his unhappiness over the film's script to Ajay Bahl's director. According to the same report, the film is a love story, and Kartik reportedly felt that Katrina Kaif would look older. It eventually resulted in Kartik kindly declining the movie backed by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies.
However, the production house had not officially declared this venture, but it was scheduled to go on floors later this year.
On the work front, Kartik will be seen in the upcoming action thriller Dhamaka. He also has another release lined up, namely Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The horror-comedy is the sequel to the 2007 release Bhool Bhulaiyaa. It also stars Kiara Advani and Tabu.
