This evening, Karan Johar teased you and I with a video, saying that he's making an announcement tomorrow. We couldn't keep calm and told you that it's likely to do something with Dostana 2. Dostana (Abhishek Bachchan-Priyanka Chopra-John Abraham) made waves when it released 11 years ago. It hinted at bromance and this one could be bolder. Aisa teaser se toh lag raha hai.
Whispers were recently agog that Janhvi Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra (both were launched by KJo in Dhadak and Student Of The Year, respectively) will be a part of Dostana 2. Now, Kartik Aaryan's name is doing the rounds. Let's see if it is indeed Kartik or Sid, or both. But Janhvi it is for the female lead, that's binding and final.
The other news on Dostana 2 is that Tarun Mansukhani, who directed the original, will not hold the reins now. We hear, it will be Colin D'cunha who assisted Raju Hirani in Sanju and Advait Chandan in Secret Superstar. Meanwhile, Tarun's Drive for KJo's Dharma Productions starring Jacqueline and Sid has been further delayed. We hear, he is now also working on a web series.
Tarun tried to put Dostana 2 together but somehow Karan and he could not stay on the same page. A lot of writing and rewriting was done, eventually Tarun seems to be out from it. For those who missed KJo's teaser and we deciphered it, we reproduce it below:
So, who cracked the script? SpotboyE.com has it that writers Navjot Gulati (writer of Runningshaadi.com) and Sumeet Arora (writer of Stree) came up with something that Karan was largely convinced about. Gulati is also currently directing a film for Luv Ranjan, Mummy Di starring Poonam Dhillon. Was the meeting of KJo and Ranjan (we told you about it EXCLUSIVELY) all about Dostana 2? Hmmm...
