She will hear the final script and close the formalities soon. Casting for her two male co-stars is presently underway after which Karan will make the final announcement.

However, Karan Johar has refuted the rumours of Alia Bhatt playing the female lead in the Dostana sequel.
Taking to his Twitter account, Karan Johar rubbished the ongoing rumour and said,“For the record.....NO ONE has been officially approached for DOSTANA 2!!!! Some thoughts and ideas are underway but nothing official has moved”.

Dostana 2 has been in the news for quite some time now but the final casting of the film has been made as of now. It looks like fans have to wait a little longer than expected for Dostana 2 to hit the screens.
