A source told Bollywood Hungama, “For the longest time, Kartik gave a real reason of the Covid 19 pandemic to not start shoot. He wanted to make sure safety so Karan didn’t push him much. But when he shot for Dhamaka, Karan was upset. that they had an inside meeting where Karan expressed his disappointment.”
Kartik later did the unthinkable which led to major fallout with Karan Johar. “Kartik got upset with the banner once they gave Shashank Khaitan’s Yoddha to Shahid Kapoor. Although Shahid soon quit, they never approached Kartik for the role anyway. Also, since Kartik’s dates weren’t available for Dostana 2, Karan decided to go ahead and begin Mr. Lele with Vicky Kaushal and Janhvi Kapoor from April.“
“ The moment Kartik got to know this development; he informed the assembly house that the sole dates available for Dostana 2 this year are going to be April onwards. Karan understood what Kartik was doing and quickly reprimanded him for the same. He was genuinely upset with Kartik as Janhvi had to select between Dostana 2 and Mr. Lele.

Well, this was not the only reason for Replacing Kartik Aaryan from Dostana 2, Kartik had creative differences with the film which he signed almost 1.5 years back.
