Since Kartik Aryan’s exit from Dharma Production’s Dostana 2, there are rumors of him exiting from a few other big projects too. Director Anubhav Sinha praised the actor for behaving in a dignified manner and remaining silent.
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 Aryarn seems concerted to me and very bloody unfair. I respect his quiet.

Dharma Productions officially announced that due to the unprofessional behavior of the actor, they have decided to recast the movie starring Jhanvi Kapoor and Lakhya Sinha. Kartik remained silent on this.
There were rumors about the actor been dropped from Aanand L Rai’s upcoming film Freddie and replaced with Ayushmann Khurrana. Meanwhile, Aanand Rai’s production busted the rumor. In the statement, they said “These are baseless rumors. 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.”
