Filmmaker Karan Johar's much loved talk show 'Koffee With Karan' is back with the new season on October 26. The guestlist of the show is one of its highlights. The season will be opened by Bollywood's favourite couple or as Karan introduces them ' Bollywood royalty'- Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. While there is much chatter about the guestlist of season 7, reports claim that Kartik Aaryan will be avoiding this season.


After a public reunion early tis year, one assumed that Kartik Aaryan will be appearing on Karan's show. However, Kartik has passed the invitation to be o the show as he is not ready for an unfiltered chat with Karan exploring the patchy phase in their relation that led to 'Dostana 2' going back to the drawing room. A report in Zoom reveals, "Kartik doesn’t feel he is ready yet to face Karan’s no-holds-barred grilling yet. He is too shy, and not really ready for the bare-all experience. Of course, people will jump to the conclusion that Kartik and Karan’s patch-up in Toronto last month was a hoax. But that isn’t true.”


"Kartik is not doing Koffee With Karan. But he is definitely doing a film with Karan, and the announcement will happen sooner rather than later," the source further added. 


At the Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne 2023, Karan and Kartik posed for pictures wearing happy smiles. Quashing further reports of fallout, the director-actor duo addressed the possibility of doing a film together soon. At the press conference, a reporter asked Karan about the chances of collaborating with Kartik after 'Dostana 2' didn't work out.

Showing a ray of hope, Karan said, "We made one attempt and for various reasons, it didn’t fructify. We’ve been in conversation to do something. I hope that does happen. In fact, that’s something we both are excited for." When he was asked whether Dostana 2 will go on floors soon with Kartik, the filmmaker smiled and shared, "Ask us no secrets and we’ll tell you no lies."

'Dostana 2 went on floors in 2019 with Kartik, Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya in the lead. Amid reports of Kartik walking out of the film, Dharma Productions issued a statement. It read, "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."
