Dostana fans have waited years for a sequel to the Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan film. It has been almost a year since we got to know that filmmaker Karan Johar is planning to make the second instalment of Dostana and since then there have been several speculations regrading the star cast. Now, latest reports have it that actress Alia Bhatt is all set to play the female lead in Dostana 2.
As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, "The conversation has begun, and Alia has liked the idea. 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. Preproduction on the film has also begun," says a source close to the development.
Earlier, there came the reports that filmmaker Karan Johar’s Dostana 2, starring Janhvi Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra, was already in the pipeline. "Karan Johar always wanted to make Dostana 2, especially after the first film worked so well. Now finally he has a script for the film, which of course will speed up production. As for the cast, Karan has finalised both Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor, and is currently looking out for the third lead role that will again be a male lead," a source told Bollywood Hungama.
However, Karan Johar took to Twitter to REVEAL the truth as he said that there's no truth to these reports. He wrote, "Hello!!! All news circulating about DOSTANA 2 is untrue!!! Lots of speculation which is entirely baseless!"
