It's been just a week to the big announcement that Karan Johar made on social media. He revealed that Dostana is indeed having a sequel and also introduced the fresh cast of the romcom to the world. Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor have been locked 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. 

But while the previous installment had John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan playing straight boys pretending to be a gay couple, while they were interested in Priyanka Chopra, the sequel will have a different take on homosexuality. And if you thought Kartik and Janhvi will be romancing each other, you'd be surprised. 

Says a source close to the development, "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." We contacted Karan Johar who chose not to respond to our text till the time we put the story out. 

When they narrated the story to both the primary leads, they fell in love with the subject. "Kartik okayed it at one go. Janhvi also stood by the subject because she feels these films will ease out and normalise homosexuality." Kartik has taken a different route this time and this also will be a huge step where yet again, we have mainstream actors playing homosexual characters on screen. Recently, Sonam K Ahuja played a gay character in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga and now, her cousin Janhvi has okayed a film on the same subject. Kudos to the team for this! 


Kartik❤ Janhvi

Kartik❤ Janhvi

Jhanvi kartik are overrated

beautiful smile

wish it were a super hot young dude...
vicky kaushal - sid malhotra - NOT kartik aryan mannnn

very interesting plot.. it will be fun.


Wrong star casting.

So agree with some comments here, this Kartik guy is so overrated, no acting skills at all..Such a duffer he is..

That's actually a great plot for a Dostana sequel, instead of two roommates vying for the same oblivious girl, two siblings vying for the same oblivious guy. I actually love it. But it will be ruined if he really does cast like Bobby Deol's son like all the rumors or whatever other nepo-kid. I'd said this before, Dostana was not a launching movie, it was full of big stars. If Karan could actually find a decent actor for the third guy and not a newb, it wouldn't flop.

Kartik for Dostana 2 doesn't feel right.

It will be a super duper Disater pls 3rd class actor like Kartik is useless for bollywood

Please stop Kartik is 3rd class hero ..pls choose actors like Hrithik Roshan if you want your movie to be a memorable and blockbuster

Michael Jackson is alive. he’s named Janhvi now


Haha !

And so it begins :/

Sounds interesting
