Produced by Dharma Productions, Dostana (2008) was indeed a path-breaking film. Starring Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan in principal roles, the comic-caper brought discussions about homosexuality and same-sex love in drawing rooms.
Eleven years after Dostana became a huge hit worldwide, producer Karan Johar is set to bankroll a sequel to the much-loved movie. To be headlined by Kartik Aaryan, Janhvi Kapoor and debutant Lakshya, Dostana 2 will be directed by debutant filmmaker Collin D’Cunha. The latest update on the project is that the team is looking at beginning production in November. The movie is set to hit the shooting floor next month in North India.
According to a source close to the development, Kartik Aaryan, Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya are currently undergoing look tests. “Kartik and Janhvi sport avatars that are a departure from everything one has seen on screen so far. Filming is slated to start in the first week of November,” lets on the source.
According to reports, the first schedule of Dostana 2 will be completed in 22 days. It will take place in Chandigarh, Patiala and other locations in North India. The second schedule of the film will be shot overseas.
