We have been hearing about ‘Dostana 2’, a sequel to the much-loved comedy film ‘Dostana’ (2008), for years now, but there has been no concrete development on the same. However, if latest reports are to be believed, producer Karan Johar is really thinking about taking the movie forward as a franchise and roll out its second instalment next year. According to a report published by a leading tabloid, KJo was not giving his go-ahead to ‘Dostana 2’ as he was not very impressed with the scripts which were presented to him. But now, he has zeroed in on an exciting idea for the movie and hence, he has decided to go ahead with ‘Dostana 2’.
A source close to the development conforms to the tabloid, “The script is currently being developed and should be locked by the end of the month. The film is expected to go on the floors early next year.” The source goes on to add that Karan is planning to sign two new actors and an A-list actress for ‘Dostana 2’. “Karan wants to cast two new actors in the film. There will be a girl to complete the triangle and she will be a Bollywood A-lister but it won’t be Priyanka reprising her role.”
Produced by Dharma Productions, ‘Dostana’ was headlined by John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra. It brought the taboo topic of homosexuality in our bedroom. It is considered to be one of the most commercial films ever made in Bollywood on the issue of homosexuality. ‘Dostana’ was helmed by Tarun Mansukhani. ‘Dostana 2’ will be helmed by a new filmmaker, as per reports.
More details are awaited.
