Right up until very close to the announcement, it was being said that Rajkummar Rao was to star in Karan Johar produced ‘Dostana 2’. However, it was ultimately revealed that the actor had opted out of the film. It was all due to ‘White Tiger’, he’s now confirmed.
“Karan is one of the finest filmmakers in the country. I hope something works out soon and I’m pretty sure it will,” said Rao, according to Filmfare. “My next project, opposite Priyanka Chopra, will be shot during the same time. But it’s a great script and Colin D’Cunha, the director, is my classmate from FTII.”
So, that should clear up any rumours about Rao having problems with any of the ‘Dostana 2’ team or that he might’ve had qualms about the film or character.
