There are numerous rumors about the sequel of the 2008 super hit romantic comedy film ‘Dostana’, which starred Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham, and Abhishek Bachchan with Bobby Deol doing a cameo. But now, it seems like all those rumors have got it all wrong! According to some reports, the Raazi actress had been roped in to act as the lead in the sequel, Dostana 2. Reports also state that Alia Bhatt, who made her debut in the film industry with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of The Year’ is also excited to work on this film.
An anonymous source informed,
“The conversation has begun, and Alia has liked the idea. She will hear the final script and close the formalities soon. Casting for her two male co-stars is presently underway after which karan will make the final announcement. Pre-production on the film has also begun.”
Nevertheless, the filmmaker Karan Johar has cleared all the doubts that surrounded the upcoming project. Encompassing all the confusion, he confirmed that though no one has been approached some ideas are being discussed. Karan Johar took his twitter handle to clear all the speculations related to the project.
“For the record…..NO ONE has been officially approached for DOSTANA 2!!!! Some thoughts and ideas are underway but nothing official has moved.”
Dostana was a movie in which Karan tried to break the stereotypical depiction of homosexuality in the world. The original film was directed by Tarun Mansukhani. After the great success of Dostana almost a decade back, the audience is eagerly waiting for part 2. In the meantime, Karan is all set for his ongoing projects like ‘Kalank’, ‘Brahmastra’, Student of The Year 2’, and also ‘Takht’. He is not at all likely to start a new one.
On the other side, Alia is gearing up for her upcoming film ‘Gully Boy’ with Ranveer Singh, the musical drama film, which is directed by Zoya Akhtar. It is all ready to smash the theaters on 14th February 2019. The film also features Kalki Koechlin and Vijay Raaz in important roles, among many.
After the success of Raazi last year, the actress got a bundle of films on her way this year. Besides, officially confirmed sources informed that Alia has also been offered by Baahubali director SS Rajamouli for his next Telugu project, starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan and Alia is really interested to be a part of this film and is trying to fix out her dates. A source added,
“Alia will be tied up with promotions of her upcoming films and the shoot of Brahmastra in the next few months. At the moment, she is trying to figure out dates for the Rajamouli film after wrapping up ongoing commitments.”
Among her upcoming projects are Kalank, Brahmastra, Takht, and also Sadak 2, which is Mahesh Bhatt’s comeback as a director. Alia is confirmed to join the cast of Sadak 2 with Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt on an outdoor shooting in Romania this year.
