However, the success of the film is ruining some friendships in the film. As per a report in DNA, it is speculated that the lead stars, Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aaryan are not on speaking terms with each other. Apparently, Kriti feels that Kartik has been taking all the credit for the success of the film and is refusing to acknowledge other's contributions.
The publication quotes a source close to the development, saying, "Kriti and some of the people around her were of the opinion that Kartik was trying to hijack the success of the movie. They felt that the actor was making it seem like he was the sole contributor to the success and that others like the director and leading lady were significantly unimportant to the process."
The same report also mentions another source who revealed the cold war going on between the stars. It said, "What started as niggling unhappiness soon took the form of extended silence. It’s been conjectured that Kriti did her own damage control by getting herself covered in the media because she had a parallel role to Kartik in the film. And, as such, she should also get equal credit." Is Kartik Aaryan Keeping SKTKS Co-Star Sunny Singh’s Career From Taking Off?
