The rumours are partially authentic about the actor being opted out from Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies upcoming movie tentatively titled, ‘Goodbye Freddie’, alongside Katrina Kaif. Kartik Aaryan ‘voluntarily’ opted himself out from the project two years ago, not by the production team.

A trade source close to the team said, “Kartik Aaryan had signed on with Red Chillies over two years ago. Recently Kartik shot for the 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.”

However, another source said that Kartik was not pleased with the script and expressed his unhappiness about the film’s script to the director Ajay Bahl. He further added that he cannot romance opposite Katrina Kaif as that would look olde to him.

Fans of Kartik Aaryan lashed out at the people who were spreading fake rumours. Check out some of their tweets here:

Meanwhile, the actor has ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ alongside Kiara Advani, which will be horror comedy Anees Bazmee.
