Bollywood's new blue-eyed boy Kartik Aaryan has lost out on a role for the honcho Karan Johar of Dharma Productions after Kartik's team spread rumours of him being cast alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, media reported on Thursday.

According to a leading daily, Kartik was considered for playing the second lead in a Karan Johar production. Whereas, the movie's actual lead couple is said to be Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan. But then, as they say, there's many a slip between the cup and the lip.

Apparently, Kartik's overly enthusiastic team spread the rumours that the actor had already signed the KJo's movie and would star opposite Kareena. As if all this is not enough, seems Kartik also demanded a hefty remuneration for the movie.

A source from Dharma productions said to Deccan Chronicle, “Dharma sent Kartik feelers regarding a possible role, but it was nothing concrete. His team messed it up by releasing reports that the actor had been signed by Karan Johar when no such thing had happened. And if that was not enough, they also leaked the news that he was going to be paired opposite Kareena when she was actually paired with Akshay in the film."

Karan Johar has reportedly roped in Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani to play the second lead couple in the movie, in which there are going to be two lead couples, around who the plot will revolve.
