Excitement is brewing as the highly-anticipated 14th Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) gears up to kick off from August 11 to 20. Bollywood enthusiasts are in for a treat as the festival promises not only a captivating lineup of movies but also the presence of renowned Indian film celebrities. Among the star-studded guests, all eyes will be on filmmaker Karan Johar and heartthrob Kartik Aaryan, who will be gracing the event and sharing the stage together.
What makes this occasion even more intriguing is the history between Karan and Kartik. In 2021, rumors swirled about a supposed fallout between the two over the making of “Dostana 2,” a highly-anticipated film franchise. Kartik had been cast in the film but decided to exit the project, leading to speculations about their relationship. However, neither party confirmed the alleged rift.
Now, as they come together at the prestigious IFFM, fans are curious to see if this moment will pave the way for a possible reconciliation between the two Bollywood powerhouses. Their joint appearance at an awards function last year sparked interest, and now, sharing the stage might be an opportunity for them to address any misunderstandings.
Aside from Karan Johar and Kartik Aaryan, the festival is set to be graced by an impressive lineup of Bollywood stars, including Shabana Azmi, Mrunal Thakur, Rana Daggubati, Anurag Kashyap, R Balki, Malaika Arora, Saiyami Kher, Sunny Leone, and many others. With such a star-studded lineup, the 14th IFFM is undoubtedly an event to watch out for, promising unforgettable moments and captivating interactions from the world of Indian cinema.
