Word around town is that Karan Johar has picked out the perfect artists for the Dostana 2 cast. This news surfaced when the film-maker shared a ‘cryptic’ post on Instagram.
Based on the post fans began to speculate the possibility of a Dostana sequel. K-Jo shared a post on Instagram with ‘maa da ladla bigad’ playing in the background.
For those who are unaware, the track K-Jo included is from the soundtrack of Dostana. This has netizens believing that Dostana 2 is in the cards.
K-Jo even had people guessing if this time he’d cast two girls and a guy or stick to the original equation.
Soon after Karan Johar put people out of their misery. He announced that the sequel was indeed in the works with Kartik Aryan and Janhvi Kapoor.
Karan Johar even made it clear that he’d be sticking to the original equation and a newbie will be cast to complete the trio.
No official announcement has been made regarding whether the storyline of Dostana 2 will be independent of Dostana or not.
Fans speculate that the original cast won’t make an appearance in the sequel. Some are still hopeful though.
Karan Johar had Alia Bhatt make a cameo in the sequel of her debut film Student of the Year. The Kalank actress also debuted her first item song for Student of the Year 2.
Fans have been waiting for a sequel to K-Jo’s 2008 film Dostana. The original movie cast ‘It Girl‘ Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, and John Abraham.
Both Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham took on challenging roles of two men pretending to be gay. The film elevated their stardom to the next level.
The film gained a cult following and PeeCee became known as ‘The Desi Girl‘. The Dostana 2 cast would have to be just as stellar.
Previously there were rumors that Alia Bhatt had been cast as the female lead in the sequel. Then there were speculations that Janhvi Kapoor and Siddarth Malhotra had been cast.
However, K-Jo has shot down all these rumors.
Tarun Mansukhani directed the original Dostana. He will not be returning for the sequel. Collin D-Cunha will direct Dostana 2.
