Bollywood top director-producer Karan Johar has announced his next production venture which is the much-awaited sequel of 2008 hit film Dostana. Titled as Dostana 2, this film features Karthik Aryan and Janhvi Kapoor in the lead roles. There is another male lead role in the movie, which will be played by a newcomer.
The original film had Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, and John Abraham in the lead roles. While the original was directed by Tarun Mansukhani, this new sequel will be helmed by Collin D’Cunha. Just like the first part, this movie will also be a triangular love story.
While speaking about this project, producer Karan Johar said, “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.”
