Ace-filmmaker Karan Johar recently revealed the cast of 'Dostana 2' and it is none other than Bollywood actors Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor. While Janhvi was appreciated for her performance in 'Dhadak', Kartik, after his recent spate of films, has emerged as a teen heart-throb. A newcomer will join the two actors, to complete the triangular romantic-comedy. The film will also see producer Karan Johar introducing a new director, Collin D’Cunha.
However, there were many on the social space who were left unhappy after knowing the casting of the film. While one user thought that he 'single-handedly' destroyed the sequel, another user thought that the 'fresh face', Johar is all set to launch would be a 'nepotism product'.
Before Kartik and Janhvi, a lot of other actors were rumoured to be in talks for the lead roles in Dostana 2, including Alia Bhatt, John Abraham, and Rajkummar Rao. However, in January 2019, Johar had rubbished the reports and clarified on Twitter saying that, "No one has been officially approached for Dostana 2. Some thoughts and ideas are underway but nothing official has moved."
The original film released in 2008 was directed by Tarun Mansukhani and featured John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan as two straight men who pretend to be gay in order to share an apartment with Priyanka Chopra. However, the two end up falling in love with her.
