Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor to star in Dostana 2
Produced by Dharma Productions, the upcoming sequel will be directed by debutant Collin D'Cunha
Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor will headline Dostana 2, producer Karan Johar announced today. Released in 2008, Dostana starred Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra in the lead roles. The film followed two straight men pretending to be gay to share an apartment with a girl. Dostana 2 will be helmed by debutant Collin D’Cunha. The second male lead will be introduced soon.
“I am excited to take the Dostana franchise forward with Kartik and Janhvi, and can’t wait to create some desi boy-girl madness with them. This is Dharma Productions’ first film with Kartik and we are looking forward to working with him. We will also be introducing a new male lead, who will join the incredible talent at our production house. Collin D’Cunha also makes his directorial debut with Dostana 2," Karan said.
Rajkummar Rao was earlier reported to be a part of Dostana 2. Kartik Aaryan was last seen in Luka Chuppi and Soni Ke Titu Ki Sweety. Janhvi Kapoor made her Bollywood debut in last year’s Dhadak. She is presently working on the horror-comedy RoohiAfza and a biopic on airforce pilot Gunjan Saxena.
