Karan Johar finally made the big announcement about the sequel to Dostana last week, bringing to an end all the speculations that have been making rounds for years. The filmmaker also announced that Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor will be playing the main leads in the sequel to the romcom which became a household favourite during its time. Karan is now injecting fresh new energy into the sequel by bringing Janhvi and Kartik on board. Currently, the makers are in search of ‘a suitable boy’ - preferably a newcomer who they will launch with Dostana 2.
In a first, Janhvi Kapoor opens up about the film and shared her excitement with the online portal. "I'm just really excited to be a part of this film! Not just because of what it’s trying to say but also because the story is just so much fun. I’m happy we’re talking about this subject more and more in cinema and normalising it,” she said. Meanwhile, many actors, both male and female have had their own reservations about the film and its sensitive nature. Janhvi is one of those few who will soon become one of the faces behind a pioneering movement we think! And if this is the case, then more power to you girl!
Karan had earlier said, “I am excited to take the franchise forward with Kartik and Janhvi! This is our first film at Dharma with Kartik and we are very excited to work with him. I can’t wait to create some desi boy and girl madness with Kartik and Janhvi. We will also be introducing a new male lead in this film and Collin makes his debut as director with Dostana 2."
Janhvi was last seen on screen in Dhadak, in which she was seen alongside Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishaan Kahtter. Now with the news clear about the Dostana sequel, fans can hardly wait to see what Karan Johar has up his sleeves for this one!
