‘Campaign’ against Kartik Aaryan ‘bloody unfair’, says director Anubhav Sinha
Kartik was dropped from a couple of high-profile projects recently
Director Anubhav Sinha on Wednesday tweeted about Kartik Aaryan being dropped from upcoming projects. He said that ‘this campaign’ against Kartik seems ‘concerted’ and ‘bloody unfair’. He also said he respects the actor for his silence over the issue.
Kartik was dropped from Dharma Productions’s Dostana 2 due to ‘professional circumstances’. There were also reports of him being removed from a film called Freddie by Red Chillies Entertainment.
Meanwhile, Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions had busted a rumour of replacing Kartik with Ayushmann Khurrana in their next.
“And by the way… when Producers drop Actors or vice versa they don’t talk about it. It happens all the time. This campaign against Kartik Aaryan seems concerted to me and very bloody unfair. I respect his quiet,” Anubhav tweeted.
In their statement, Colour Yellow Productions had said: “These are baseless rumours. We’ve met Kartik for a different film and we’re still talking. We’ve taken another film altogether to Ayushmann and this is a complete mix up.”
Kartik’s next release is Dhamaka on Netflix. He’s also the lead in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.
