Rajkummar Rao is all set to appear next to Kangana Ranuat in his upcoming comedy murder-mystery, Judgementall Hai Kya, which is slated for release in the last week of July. This will be his second movie with Kangana and the actor also has several other interesting titles lined up, including Made in China, Roohiafza and Turram Khan. Rajkummar has also been the subject of news headlines and speculation by the media regarding his roles in other upcoming movies. Last month, filmmaker Hansal Mehta warned people about con artists asking for funds for a fake project involving him and Rajkummar Rao.
More recently, the actor has been rumoured to be a part of Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Zyaada Savdhan -- playing an LGBT character -- and Karan Johar’s Dostana 2, which also features Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor.
Rajkummar has finally responded to all the rumours and much to the disappointment of his fans, he will not be appearing in either film: “No, I am not doing Dostana 2 and neither Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan,” he said, while adding that he had met KJo.

“I met Karan (Johar). Of course, I have immense respect for him but this one did not work out but I am sure very soon you will hear something very exciting from both of us,” he said.
