It’s finally happening! Karan Johar’s much-loved film Dostana that was directed by Tarun Mansukhani and starred Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham in lead roles is now getting a sequel. Yesterday, Karan shared a cryptic post and soon after fans started speculating that he will be announcing Dostana 2. Interestingly, millennial icons Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aayan have been roped in to play the lead roles in the film.
Recently, Karan took to social media and made the announcement. He wrote, “The return of the franchise with unlimited madness! @TheAaryanKartik, #Janhvi & a soon to be launched fresh face – making it the trio for #Dostana2, directed by @CollinDcunha.
While Kartik became the national crush when his movie Pyaar Ka Punchnama hit the screens in 2011, Janhvi made her debut last year with Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak and instantly became tinsel town’s favourite. Dostana 2 will mark Kartik and Janhvi’s first collaboration.
Apart from this, Janhvi and Kartik have a lot of projects lined up in their kitties. While Janhvi will be playing the lead role in the upcoming Gunjan Saxena biopic and will be seen sharing screen space with Raj Kummar Rao in RoohiAfza, Kartik will be starring in Imtiaz Ali’s next directorial alongside Sara Ali Khan. He will also be playing the male lead in the remake of Pati Patni Aur Woh.
