“We are still in talks with Kartik Aaryan,” says Aanand L Rai’s production house, refuting rumours

After exiting Karan Johar’s Dostana and from Shah Rukh Khan’s Freddie, Kartik Aaryan was said to reportedly have lost another big project, an Aanand L Rai film that was based on a gangster. However, the filmmaker’s team has denied the buzz and revealed that the production house is still in talks with Kartik.

Aanand L Rai’s production house, Colour Yellow Productions’ spokesperson shared in a statement, “These are baseless rumours. We’ve met Kartik for a different film & we’re still talking. We’ve taken another film altogether to Ayushmann and this is a complete mix up.”  Aanand L Rai had stated, “There was no such film signed by Kartik, all these reports are baseless. There are so many actors who come to meet me, but that does not mean that he or she has been signed for my film.” Buzz about Karitk Aaryan collaborating with Aanand L Rai started earlier this year when the actor was spotted outside the filmmaker’s office. Aanand L Rai is reportedly planning the Hindi remake of Tamil romantic comedy Kalayana Samayal Saadam with Kartik, but there is no confirmation

Recently, Kartik Aaryan voluntarily opted out of a film that was being produced by Shah Rukh Khan. He apparently had creative differences over the film’s romantic narrative and he had expressed the same to the film’s director Ajay Bahl. Kartik Aryan was reportedly paired opposite Katrina Kaif in this venture. Apart from this, Kartik also left Karan Johar’s production venture Dostana 2. He had shot extensively for this romantic drama with Janhvi Kapoor, but after Kartik’s exit, the makers are now planning to rope in Rajkummar Rao.
