Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan to play siblings in Dostana 2
MUMBAI: Ever since the buzz about a sequel to Dostana started, people were speculating about the trio that will take over the big screen for this Dharma comedy. After a long wait, Karan Johar announced that Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan will be seen in the film, along with a new comer.
Announcing the initial cast of the film, Johar said, “I am excited to take the Dostana franchise forward with Kartik and Janhvi, and can’t wait to create some desi boy-girl madness with them. This is Dharma Productions’ first film with Kartik and we are looking forward to working with him. We will also be introducing a new male lead, who will join the incredible talent at our production house. Collin D’Cunha also makes his directorial debut with Dostana 2.”
After the news broke, people have been talking about how Janhvi and Katrik would romance each other for the first time, but a source close to the producers revealed that the duo will be playing on-screen siblings instead. The source revealed, “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 KJo is introducing with the movie.”
Talking of the debutant, addressed as the “Suitable boy” in the announcement post, the source revealed, “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.”
