Is producer Karan Johar miffed with director Tarun Mansukhani?
A still from 'Dostana'
If you were looking forward to seeing John Abraham’s hot body and Abhishek playing a dandy again then you are in for a disappointment. According to reportes, the sequel to 2008’s madcap comedy ‘Dostana’ might not take off. And the reason is director Tarun Mansukhan’s alleged tantrums.
Apparently, Tarun has demanded that producer Karan Johar pay him an astronomical figure to direct the sequel. Industry insiders also reveal that the director believes that he belongs to the top league of directors and hence should be entitled to a share in the profits his movies make! Now this demand has not gone down well with KJo who has always treated his directors fairly.
However, a section of the industry says that more than money, script has been the issue why ‘Dostana 2’ is being delayed. The script to the sequel has apparently not found favour with the cast who believe that the second part must better the first one and meet expectations of fans.
With so much speculation going on, we guess we won’t know why ‘Dostana 2’ is shelved until the makers themselves clear the picture. But will they?
