Dostana Sequel: Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan to play siblings in Karan Johar's Upcoming Film
Karan Johar’s Dostana is getting a sequel and Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor have been roped in to play the main leads. It has been revealed the two will play siblings in the sequel
Ace filmmaker Karan Johar recently took to social media to make a big announcement. He revealed that his film Dostana is all set to get a sequel and also introduced the new cast of the romantic comedy genre film to the world. Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor have been roped in to play the main leads, while the team is on the lookout for 'a suitable boy' to play the other guy in the second part of the film. The first installment of the film saw John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan starring alongside each other and now, after the cast was revealed, many thought Sara would be romancing Karthik; and were very much mistaken.
A source close to the film’s development and inception clarified that the two actors will not be paired opposite each other in the film, but in fact will be playing siblings. "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. 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.”
Further, when the storyline was narrated to both the leads, they fell in love with the subject. "Kartik okayed it at one go."
This will be a role that is rather different for Kartik and this is a huge step for the actor in his film career. Recently, Sonam K Ahuja played a similar character in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga and now, her cousin Janhvi has okayed a film on the same subject.
Jahnvi was last seen on the big screen in her debut film, Dhadak. While the film did not fare too well at the box office, the Jahnvi Kapoor was lauded for her efforts. We can’t wait to see her on the big screen once again.
