Kartik Aaryan made headlines for quite a while after the actor was fired from Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions Dostana 2. The news caught fire and was spread everywhere within no time. Dharma Productions also released a statement revealing that Kartik is no longer part of their project. Well, now we hear that the Pati Patni Aur Woh actor opted out of another film.

If we go by the reports then Kartik Aaryan has opted out of the Red Chillies film. It was a direction by Ajay Bahl and was tentatively titled, Goodbye Freddie. The movie was a social comedy also starring Katrina Kaif opposite Kartik. It is also said that the actor has refunded the signing amount to Red Chillies which was Rs. 2 crores.

Commenting on Kartik’s exit, a source informed Bollywood Hungama, “Yes, Kartik Aaryan was to feature in Ajay Bahl’s social comedy that was being produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies. However, the actor has now walked out of the project that was supposed to commence shoot in a few months.”

Talking about the reason for the actor opting out of the project, the source says, “Apparently, creative differences developed between Kartik and the director Ajay Bahl due to which the actor decided on leaving the project. Kartik was not happy with the developed script as it was different from what was narrated to him as a one-liner plot.”

Another trade source revealed, “Kartik Aaryan had signed on with Red Chillies over two years ago. Recently Kartik shot for Dhamaka during the pandemic which was a thriller. Post shooting for Dhamaka, Kartik informed Red Chillies that he felt that doing another thriller so quickly would not be apt for his career. He requested to opt out and his request was considered. The parting was amicable between Kartik and Red Chillies.”
