Karan Johar, with the announcement of the sequel to his 2008 gay rom-com Dostana in June, made it difficult to keep calm. With Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor headlining the film with Lakshya as the third lead, avid cinema watchers are surely left excited to see a fresh pairing onscreen. And now, it seems the wait for the film to go on floors is about to end as Kartik has finally started preparing for his character. A while ago, Lakshya, on his Instagram account shared a picture of him with the film's script, indicating he had begun his work on the project.
Kartik, on Instagram, on Monday, shared his picture with the script in his hand. It seems the actor and the director of Dostana 2, Collin D’Cunha, who is making his directorial debut with the sequel, had a meeting over the reading of the script. "#Dostana2 ka Prep Shuru," Kartik wrote.
Janhvi, who will be starring as the female lead, gave the meeting a skip as she is spending some time off with her father Boney Kapoor and sister Khushi Kapoor in New York. Khushi, the younger sister of Jahnvi is in the Big Apple for further studies.
Speaking of Dostana 2, like the previous installment, the sequel too will feature two actors and one actress. However, it is still unclear whether a romantic angle between Janhvi, Kartik and Lakshya will be formed. The film will be bankrolled by Karan under his banner Dharma Productions and is said to go on floors in October. Dostana 2, doesn't just mark the debut of director Collin but also of Lakshya, who was formerly known by the name of Laksh Lalvani, a popular face on TV. The film is likely to release in 2020.
