Kartik Aaryan and Karan Johar are once again creating a heavy buzz on the Internet after a video of the duo having a hearty chat during an award show went viral. Kartik and Karan have been in the news ever since Dharma Productions announced the recasting of Dostana 2 last year. In the video posted by a fan on Twitter, they can be seen sitting together and laughing when Varun Dhawan approaches the actor and pulls him onto the stage to perform to the song The Punjaabban Song. It seems all is well now between the two, or at least that's what the viral video suggests.
Reacting to the video, a fan wrote, "How sweet #KartikAaryan is Being cordial & nice with Karan," while another wrote, "It's called being civil and not trying to create a scene in public, unlike what Varun did." "Hatchets buried I guess?," another commented.

Kartik Aaryan was to star in Dostana 2 with Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya Lalwani. However, last year the actor was dropped from the project. Karan Johar issued a statement on Dharma Productions' Instagram handle that 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."
Recently, during the promotions of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Kartik Aaryan was asked about his alleged feud with Karan Johar and if it would affect his work. Speaking to The Indian Express, he said, "I just focus on my work. That's all I would like to say on this." He added, "What happens, at times, is people make 'baat ka batangad' (make a mountain out of a molehill). There is nothing more to it. No one has so much time. Everybody just wants to work, do good work. Other than that, things are just rumours."
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kartik Aaryan is basking on the success of his recently released movie Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. On the other hand, Karan Johar will be returning as a director with Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh.
