Filmmaker Karan Johar has recently been the talk of the town since he made the announcement of Dostana 2. The movie starring Kartik Aaryan, Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya has wrapped up its Punjab schedule recently. The original Dostana which was released in 2008 starred John Abraham, Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan. The movie revolved around two men who pretend to be gay to share an apartment with a girl but later they fall in love with her. Talking about Dostana 2 at a chat show, Karan Johar said that the evolution is from one Dostana to the other. Dostana that released in 2008 and the Dostana 2 that's releasing in 2020, the audience will see that the representation is accurate, non-caricaturish and on point, talking about sexuality in a way that will not make you cringe while watching it.

The filmmaker further added, "So therein lies the fact that in the last 12 years, there has been a solid change in the way we depict gay characters. Even in 'Kapoor & Sons' and the way it was depicted." At the session titled 'Ten things men must change about Bollywood', the filmmaker spoke about item numbers and much more. He said that he doesn't think that there were going to be repercussions. Cinema is such an impressionable medium. It was just things that we didn't think of and then when we are told, we realise that they are true, we've to apologise to the society that we possibly scarred as a result of what we put out there.

The Student Of The Year 2 producer further said, "I can't take back those songs that I put out there in cinema that have objectified women but I can say for a fact that I will not do it again." 

On the work front besides Dostana 2, Karan Johar will be donning the director's hat again for Takht which will star Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Bhumi Pednekar, Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Anil Kapoor.
