Karan Johar and Kartik Aaryan Opt for Date Adjustment, Steering Clear of Clash with Hrithik Roshan’s War 2 for Their Upcoming Project

Karan Johar’s birthday announcement of his first collaboration with Kartik Aaryan – a war drama slated for an Independence Day 2025 release – seemed like a bold move. But just days later, a curveball was thrown with YRF’s announcement of “War 2,” starring Hrithik Roshan and Jr. NTR, also targeting the same date. Inside sources at Dharma Productions reveal that the news hasn’t gone unnoticed. While Kartik and Karan were initially committed to the August 14th release, the possibility of a clash is now being seriously considered.

“A clash doesn’t make commercial sense,” a trade source told Bollywood Hungama. “Kartik and Karan have been discussing this ever since the War 2 announcement. They’re open to alternative dates.”

While the lucrative Independence Day weekend remains tempting, “War 2” carries significant weight. As part of YRF’s ambitious Spy Universe and boasting established stars like Roshan and NTR, it’s a bigger fish that commands respect.

So, what’s the plan?

Currently, two options are on the table, which goes as under:

  1. Move to October 2nd, 2025: Karan’s familiarity with Ayan Mukerji’s shooting style makes him aware of potential delays in “War 2” production. This alternate date offers a safe buffer if needed.
  1. Stick to August 14th: If “War 2” faces unforeseen delays, Karan and Kartik might still hold their ground on the Independence Day weekend.

The final decision rests on “War 2’s” progress. If it stays on track for August 14th, Kartik and Karan’s film will definitely move. Otherwise, they’ll have their own shot at the patriotic fervor of the national holiday.

One thing’s for sure – this potential clash has sparked a fascinating behind-the-scenes tug-of-war. Will Kartik and Karan’s fresh collaboration risk facing a behemoth like “War 2,” or will they play it safe and choose another date? Only time will tell!
