Karan Johar ropes in Janhvi Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra for ‘Dostana 2’?

Tarun Mansukhani’s hit film ‘Dostana’ featuring Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham in lead roles, is reportedly getting a sequel. The Tarun Mansukhani-directed romantic comedy that had touched upon the taboo topic of homosexuality and brought it into the mainstream cinema, had even set the ticket counters ringing around the globe. And now, a little over a decade later, we hear that there will, in fact, be a sequel to the 2008 film.

According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Karan Johar has finalised a script for the film and has also roped in Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor to play the film’s lead.

As per the report, “Karan Johar always wanted to make ‘Dostana 2’, especially after the first film worked so well. Now finally he has a script for the film, which of course will speed up production. As for the cast, Karan has finalized both Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor and is currently looking out for the third lead role that will again be a male lead.

The report further added, “Like the first film this one too will be directed by Tarun Mansukhani. The only difference will be the story and cast that will change. But as of now with the hunt still on, the film is still a long way off from going on the floor.”

Reportedly, the third leading man will be locked in soon and shooting for the film in question will Kick start sometime around mid-2019.

Janhvi Kapoor, daughter of late actress Sridevi and Boney Kapoor, has marked her Bollywood debut in Karan Johar’s production venture, ‘Dhadak’. She will next be seen in ‘Takht’. The period drama that is based on the Mogul era, also features Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar and will hit the screens in 2020.

On the other hand, Sidharth Malhotra is presently shooting for his upcoming film ‘Jabariya Jodi’ which features Parineeti Chopra as the female lead.

If the ‘Dostana 2’ news is true, it will be exciting to watch the on-screen chemistry shared by Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor in Karan Johar’s next.
