After a lot of waiting, KJo, at last, announced a sequel to John Abraham-Abhishek Bachchan-Priyanka Chopra starrer Dostana a few days back. Helmed by Collin D’Cunha who will be making his debut as a director with this movie. This movie will have Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor sharing screen space for the very first time. But the third lead for the movie is still unnamed.
When the news came for Dostana 2 sequel, from filmmakers side, everyone thought that Kartik and Janhvi would be paired opposite each other. But filmmakers broke the hearts of the fanbase of these two actors. A recent media report reveals that these two will not be romancing each other in the movie.
A source that operates close to an online entertainment portal revealed,
“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.”
This source further revealed,
“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.”
In the past, speaking about the film’s plot, a source spilled the beans,
“The film follows a similar template as the original Dostana with humour woven in the screenplay. However, the subject of homosexuality will be tackled with sensitivity.”
Dostana 2 producer: Karan Johar released an official statement that read like this,
“I am excited to take the Dostana franchise forward with Kartik and Janhvi, and can’t wait to create some desi boy-girl madness with them. This is Dharma Productions’ first film with Kartik and we are looking forward to working with him. We will also be introducing a new male lead, who will join the incredible talent at our production house. Collin D’Cunha also makes his directorial debut with Dostana 2.”
Shooting for the film is set to begin by the year end and it will arrive on silver screens in 2020.
This movie is expected to be looked upon with great regard by the LGBT community as just last year, on 6th of September 2018, the Supreme Court of India decriminalized homosexuality.
And Karan Johar has admitted being a gay himself in public a long while back.
