Mumbai: The suspense is finally over. Speculations about the second installment of Dostana have been rife for some time now, with names of various actors doing the rounds. However it's now official that Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor have been finalised as the leads of Dostana 2.
While Janhvi was appreciated for her performance in Dhadak and is seen as a talent to watch out for, Kartik, after his recent spate of films, has emerged as a teen heart-throb. A newcomer will join the two actors, to complete the triangular romantic-comedy. The film will also see producer Karan Johar introducing a new director, Collin D’Cunha.
According to Karan's tweet, he will soon be launching "a suitable boy" who will be a fresh face. He wrote, "The return of the franchise with unlimited madness! @TheAaryanKartik, #Janhvi & a soon to be launched fresh face - making it the trio for #Dostana2, directed by @CollinDcunha. Watch out for the third suitable boy! @apoorvamehta1@dharmamovies."
