About two months ago, we were amongst the first ones to break the story to you all that Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety star Kartik Aaryan was about to have his dream come true by starring in a film which has Kareena Kapoor Khan as its female lead and produced by none other than the Dharma head-honcho Karan Johar. And, quite recently, another piece of news begun making rounds. The second story that we are talking about was about yet another Dharma film that is going to be front-lined by Gold star Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan and reportedly has Soorma star Diljit Dosanjh and Lust Stories starlet Kiara Advani on board to play the supporting characters.
Why are we talking about those two pieces of news? Well, because we believe that the two are indeed connected and if an online report is to be believed, Kartik has apparently lost out on the Dharma movie that he was reportedly going to be a part of and the movie in question was probably the Akshay & Kareena-starrer that was making headlines recently.
Speaking about Kartik’s apparent loss of a Dharma movie, a source has been quoted online saying that, “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.”
To which, the source added that, “He (Aaryan) thinks he’s an A-list star now and should be paid accordingly. Sadly the producers don’t agree,”
Well, we guess that teams of artists be a bit over-zealous that way.
