Karan Johar’s upcoming film ‘Dostana 2’ will be starring Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan, as confirmed by the filmmaker. However, instead of playing each other’s love interest, it’s being said that they will be seen as siblings who have the same love interest – played by a fresh face actor yet to be announced.
Johar told DNA, “I am thrilled to take the franchise forward with Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor. This is Dharma’s first film with Kartik and we are excited to work with him! We can’t wait to create some desi boy and girl madness with him and Janhvi. We will also introduce a male lead in this film who will join the incredible talent at Dharma. Collin D’Cunha makes his debut as a director with Dostana 2”.
Elaborating on the sibling-dynamic between Kapoor and Aaryan, Johar said to Pinkvilla, “Kartik and Janhvi are not paired opposite each other in Dostana 2. In fact, they are playing siblings in the film. This is a new brother-sister pairing that KJo is introducing with the movie. The reason why they called the third lead ‘a suitable boy’ is because both Janhvi and Kartik have the same love interest, to be essayed by this newcomer that Dharma plans to launch with the sequel.”
