After years of speculations, ace filmmaker Karan Johar finally confirmed that Dharma Productions is gearing up to take the Dostana (2008) franchise forward. While the original movie had John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra headlining the cast, the sequel is going to feature Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor in lead roles. One more male actor is expected to join the star cast soon.

This is the first time when Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor have teamed up for a film. Apart from the film, the audience is also really looking forward to the fresh paring that Karan Johar has matched. Janhvi, who is presently busy shooting for her next Roohi Afza with Rajkummar Rao, is excited about being a part of Dostana 2. The young actress says that the story of the sequel is a lot of fun.

“I am just really excited to be a part of this film! Not just because of what it is trying to say but also because the story is just so much fun. I am happy we are talking about this subject more and more in cinema and normalising it,” says the newcomer.

Janhvi Kapoor, who made her acting debut with Dharma Productions Dhadak (2018), has an interesting lineup of projects on her platter. Most of her upcoming films are with Dharma Productions only. After Dhadak, her next film with the banner is expected to be a biopic on IAF officer Gunjan Saxena, tentatively titled Kargil Girl.

Dostana 2 will be her fourth film with Dharma Productions.

As mentioned above, she will also be seen in Maddock Films’ horror comedy Roohi Afza, alongside National Film Award-winning actor Rajkummar Rao.
