Kartik reportedly had some professional differences with the production team, which resulted in his departure from the film.

“My lips are sealed,” Karan Johar said in an interview with Free Press Journal on casting Akshay Kumar in Dostana 2 opposite Janhvi Kapoor and Laksh Lalwani. We’ll make an announcement soon.” Kartik Aaryan’s loss appears to be Akshay Kumar’s gain.

The filmmaker also dismissed the rumours of Janhvi Kapoor & Laksh Lalwani getting replaced, Karan said, “It’s not true. Janhvi and Laksh are very much a part of the film.”

The sequel to Dostana was announced in 2009, and Tarun Mansukhani was set to direct it, with John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan reprising their roles, along with a newcomer – Katrina Kaif. Karan, on the other hand, didn’t care for the script and chose to put it on wait until something more interesting came along.
