Amidst a crashing world economy due to the pandemic, the film industry is facing a major financial crunch this year. Almost everyone including the bigwigs have hit the middle ground in monetary dealings. However, it seems youth sensation Kartik Aaryan is in denial to follow suit though.
The ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ star, after accomplishing himself as one of the A-League actors of the current generation has obviously been flooded with movie offers with reputed production houses. But 2020 has a different story to tell.
Kartik will be seen in ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, and we have news from our sources as they revealed, “The makers of ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ have asked Kartik to take a pay cut. But Kartik has refused to be on the same page as the makers because he already started shooting for the film when the lockdown happened and he finds it legit to not curtail his remuneration. The entire team is going through financial issues. He has also been asked to give his dates to resume shoot but the actor is aversive about shooting on a set till there’s a vaccine in the market. And this is one of the major reasons Kiara Advani, who is also the lead opposite Kartik in the film has given her dates to Raj Mehta’s next with Varun Dhawan and that will be her immediate next film to shoot not ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’.”
Kartik also has ‘Dostana 2’ lined up along with Jahnvi Kapoor, produced by Dharma Productions and our sources confirmed, “He is also not giving his dates for ‘Dostana 2’ and this has made Karan Johar’s team to be quite livid as a lot of money is riding on the films and the producers are left with no choice.”
We wonder what will happen next. Until then, you guys stay tuned to this space for more such interesting updates.
