Just a couple of days ago, we got to know that Dostana 2, a sequel to Dharma Productions’ much-loved comic-caper, Dostana (2008), is set to roll soon. Producer Karan Johar announced the project along with revealing the cast. KJo introduced Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor as the new lead of the film, while also mentioning that he would soon announce the name of one more lead.

It looks like Karan Johar has found the second male lead for Dostana 2. Yes, you heard that right! If the latest reports doing the rounds are to be believed, debutant Fateh Randhawa will play the second male character in the movie. Fateh is the son of former actress Farah Naaz and nephew of seasoned Bollywood actress Tabu. A source close to an entertainment portal has confirmed the news. However, the makers are yet to make an official announcement confirming the same.

There is another interesting speculation surrounding Dostana 2.

A source in the know reveals to an entertainment portal, “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 Karan Johar 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.”

Dostana 2 marks the directorial debut of Collin Dchunha. The film is expected to arrive in cinemas next year.
