Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan on Friday shared his first picture on social media after his controversial exit from Karan Johar’s upcoming production “Dostana 2”.
In the black and white picture on Instagram, Kartik wears a mask that covers the entire lower half of his face. The close-up picture seems to have been clicked in the winter, as the actor wears a jacket and a hood beneath. He looks intensely into the camera as his long hair flows in all directions.
In a clear message exhorting fans to wear masks, Kartik Aaryan just dropped a mask emoji as caption.
Fans were overjoyed to hear from their favourite star, going by the response in the comment section. “Finally you posted,” wrote a fan, while another felt the image exuded “superhero feelsssssss”.
A user asked about the “Dostana 2” fiasco. “Itne time baad post kiya yaar (you posted after such a long time buddy) i was so tensed,” said another.
Earlier this month, Karan Johar’s banner Dharma Productions officially announced that Kartik would no longer star in their upcoming production “Dostana 2”. “Due to professional circumstances, on which we have decided to maintain a dignified silence — we will be recasting Dostana 2, directed by Collin D’Cunha. Please wait for the official announcement soon,” the announcement read.
Kartik Aaryan has refrained from commenting on the issue.
