“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,” a Colour Yellow Productions Spokesperson also told us.
Aanand L Rai also did not divulge whether Ayushmann Khurrana had replaced Aaryan in his project but did say that he has a story which he will be making with Ayushmann. There were reports that Kartik Aaryan was working with Rai after he was photographed outside his office in Mumbai in February. Then, rumours surfaced that he had been dropped from the yet-untitled project. Recently, Aaryan had walked out of Dostana 2 and Dharma Productions had released a statement saying that the role would be recast. Reportedly, the actor has also walked out of the Red Chillies produced, Goodbye Freddie.
