Karan Johar is keen on making the sequel as the first instalment  was a box office hit. The 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' director is on the search for the second male lead of the film. 

'Dostana' revolved around two fun-loving friends Sam (Abhishek Bachchan) and Kunal (John Abraham), who decide to take an apartment on rent in Miami. A problem arises for them when the owner of the house, Neha (Priyanka Chopra) wishes to rent out the flat only to women. In order to get the apartment, Sam and Kunal pretend to be a gay couple. However, things change when both of them fall for Neha but to their shock, they discover that Neha is already smitten by her colleague Abhimanyu or Abhi (Bobby Deol).''Dostana' was one of the hit movies of 2008 and the songs of the movie garnered a lot of public appreciation. A movie of the same name was made in 1980 which starred  Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Zeenat Aman in the lead roles but the story line of both the films are different.
