Dostana 2, one of the most awaited sequels of Bollywood, is in news once again. Buzz has it that after being delayed for almost a decade, the project has been revived now after Karan Johar zeroed in on a brilliant script for the sequel recently.
While reports were floating around that Karan wanted a fresh star cast for Dostana 2, the latest we hear that Priyanka Chopra might be retained for the sequel, while John Abraham and Abhishek will be replaced by two young actors.
When Dostana 2 was planned a decade ago, Katrina Khan was in talks to star in the sequel. However, the movie could not take off on time and Kat moved on to other projects. Since the gorgeous actress is busy with her new projects like Thugs Of Hindostan, Zero and Bharat, she has no dates for Dostana 2 now. Reportedly, the makers have now approached Priyanka Chopra to reprise her role in the sequel.
“Dostana 2 was announced 10 years ago, and Katrina was roped in at that time. Now that the film is actually being made, Katrina’s dates are no longer available, because she has committed them to Salman Khan’s Bharat. So now the project has gone back to Priyanka,” a well-placed source reveals to an Indian daily.
Priyanka is currently shooting for her next Bollywood film The Sky Is Pink with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. Besides, she also has some Hollywood commitments. It will be interesting to see if she says yes or no to Dostana 2.
