There have been many rumours regarding the second instalment of ‘Dostana’ (2008). However, if Karan Johar’s latest teaser announcement is anything to go by, it seems ‘Dostana 2’ is all set to be officially confirmed on 27th June.
While the first film was directed by Tarun Mansukhani, it seems the second part will have Collin D’Cunha as director. He has been assisting on ‘Talaash’, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘PK’. As for the cast, it was initially being said that Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan are the ones signed but now it’s being said that Rao won’t be featuring in the film. It remains to be seen tomorrow who apart from Kapoor and Aaryan will make up the trio.
A source told Cineblitz, “While Rajkummar Rao and John Abraham were initially a part of Dostana 2, they aren’t anymore. In fact, till a few weeks ago, Rajkummar was very much a part of the project along with Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor. However, after learning about the shoot schedule, he knew his dates would be an issue. He tried to work things around, but he and Karan mutually agreed to work on another project later on and part ways for this one. But there’s now worry as Karan Johar has found a worthy replacement. He is no star, but a new face who is sure to make a mark with this film”.
The original film starred Priyanka Chopra Jonas, John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan
