Dostana 2: Karan Johar rubbishes reports of Alia Bhatt starring as the lead
After the success of Dostana in 2008, a lot of fans have been eagerly waiting for its sequel. To our delight, we came across a piece of news on Wednesday morning that the lead star for Dostana 2 has been decided already and that it’s none other than Alia Bhatt. However, it only turned out to be a rumour. Although the film is underway, the cast, apparently, hasn’t been decided yet. The confirmation comes from Johar himself.
Taking to tweet immediately after the reports of Alia starring in the sequel started doing the rounds, the filmmaker wrote that ‘no one has been officially approached for Dostana 2’ as of now. Nevertheless, we are happy knowing that the film is under process and the lead cast should be hopefully announced soon. Earlier, Johar stated that he would love to make a story based on homosexuals. Speaking to the New Indian Express, he said, “Being a leading filmmaker, I can make movies on the subject. I would love to make a homosexual love story and would want to cast two leading actors in the film.”
On that note, what also draws our attention is Rajkummar Rao’s recent confession on Koffee With Karan, where the actor said that he would want to be paired opposite Johar if ever he played a gay character on screen. So will the Dhadak maker consider Rao as one of the leads in Dostana 2 then? Only time will tell!
