Tarun Mansukhani who directed the hot hit Dostana is no longer helming the sequel. A  new director Colin De Cunha will  direct  the sequel which stars  Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aryan. Sources say producer Karan Johar tried his  best  to ensure Mansukhani returned  with the sequel. “But  Tarun Mansukhani couldn’t come  up with a single  idea  worth filming. Way back in 2009 Karan  Johar announced the sequel with Tarun as director and  the same two leading men Abhishek Bachchan and  John Abraham with Katrina Kaif replacing Priyanka Chopra. But Karan didn’t like the script that Tarun  came up with. Karan decided to wait for Tarun to  rustle  up a  decent idea for a sequel.  11  years is a  long time to wait. Finally Karan has  roped in another director and  fresh cast.”

The  casting of Kartik Aryan and Janhvi Kapoor in Dostana 2 is  not a random happening. According to  source close  to  Karan , “Kartik has been spending a  lot  of time in Karan’s company  attending his parties religiously and has been spending time at his office regularly.” As for Janhvi she is  Karan’s Dharma  Productions current  new blue-eyed girl. This is  her third film with the  banner. And  it is almost certain that  Sridevi’s younger daughter Khushi will also be launched by Karan  Johar.

There is another  male lead in Dostana 2 yet to be  cast.  We hear Siddhant Chaturvedi  of  Gully Boy has  been trying hard to  get noticed  for the part. But Karan Johar  doesn’t seem  much  interested. Earlier, there were rumours that Rajkummar Rao will be part of the sequel but obviously, that’s not happening now.
