Fault Lies With Aditya Roy Kapoor’s Stars

It’s sad but it seems as though Aditya Roy Kapoor’s career has gone the Imran Khan way. Both from influential film families—Imran’s uncle is Aamir Khan while Aditya’s elder brother is  producer Siddharth Roy Kapoor—they both made spectacular starts,only to arrive at a  deadend  in their respective careers after a brief spell of stardom.

Aditya Roy Kapoor, until recently considered a hot contender for the top spots alongside Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and Arjun Kapoor, seems to have lost valuable ground after the back-to-back failure  of three of his purported biggies Yash Raj Films’ Daawat-e-Ishq, Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor and most recent Shaad Ali’s Ok Jaanu.

Now  even the big banners backing Aditya’s career have stepped back. Yash Raj Films and Aditya Chopra are busy backing Ranveer Singh ,while Karan Johar is looking at Varun Dhawan and Ranbir Kapoor and  planning to introduce a whole  slew of star-kids in  2017

But the really bad news for Aditya is that he  has been dropped from Karan Johar’s prestigious remake of the Hollywood blockbuster Fault In Our Stars. Karan  had zeroed in on Aditya and his blue-eyed girl Alia Bhatt two play the two terminally ill lovers in the remake.

But now we hear Karan  is looking at  another leading man with Alia.

Says a source, “Aditya started as the second lead in Sanjay Bhansali’s Guzaarish , Vipul Shah’s London Dreams and Ayan Mukerjee’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Then came Aashiqui 2 which changed his fortunes and  upscaled his status to main lead. But now it seems he would have to rethink his career plans.”

Unless Big Brother Siddharth has something up his sleeve for his sibling. We hear there will be an announcement soon.
