Rajkummar Rao is gearing up for his next ‘Made In China’. Reportedly the actor turned down Karan Johar‘s ‘Dostana’ sequel to work with Desi Girl Priyanka Chopra. Earlier reports suggested that Rajkummar will be starring alongside Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor.

Initially, KJo had offered Rajkummar a role in ‘Dostana 2’ but the actor turned it down. His role eventually went to newbie Lakshya. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Karan always wanted to work with Rajkummar. And the actor too wanted to collaborate with him. Rao had told the tabloid, “He’s (KJo) one of the finest filmmakers in the country. I hope something works out soon and I’m pretty sure it will“.

Citing reasons why couldn’t do ‘Dostana 2’, Rao said that it was all because of ‘dates’. “My next project, opposite Priyanka Chopra, will be shot during the same time as ‘Dostana 2’. But it’s a great script and Colin D’Chunha, the director(of ‘Dostana 2’), is my classmate from FTII,” shared the actor.

Rao will be seen opposite Priyanka Chopra in Netflix’s ‘The White Tiger’. The film is an adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s Man Booker Prize-winning debut novel ‘The White Tiger’.

On the work front, Rao will also be seen in ‘Roohi Afza’ opposite Janhvi Kapoor. Then there’s ‘Turram Khan’, co-starring Nushrat Bharucha. Rao’s ‘Made in China’ will release on October 25 this year and it will clash with Akshay Kumar’s ‘Housefull 4′ and Taapsee Pannu-Bhumi Pednekar’s ‘Saand Ki Aankh’.
