Dostana 2 Is Finally Happening…But Without Tarun Mansukhani

 Tarun Mansukhani who directed  the hot homophobic  hit  Dostana is no longer helming the sequel.A  new director Colin De Cunha will  direct  the sequel which stars  Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aryan.

Sources say   producer Karan Johar tried his  best  to ensure Mansukhani returned  with the sequel.

“But  Tarun Mansukhani couldn’t come  up with a single  idea  worth filming.Way back in 2009 Karan  Joharannounced the sequel with Tarun as  director and  the same two leading men  Abhishek   Bachchan and  John Abraham with Katrina Kaif replacing  Priyanka Chopra. But  Karan  didn’t like the script that Tarun  came up with . Karan decided to wait for Tarun to  rustle  up a  decent idea for a sequel.  11  years is a  long time to wait. Finally Karan has  roped in another director and  fresh cast.”

The  casting of Kartik Aryan and Janhvi Kapoor in Dostana 2 is  not a random happening.

According to  source close  to  Karan , “Kartik has been spending a  lot  of time in Karan’s company  attending his parties religiously and  doing  haazri(roll call) at his office regularly.”

As for Janhvi she is  Karan’s Dharma  Productions current  new blue-eyed girl. This is  her third film with the  banner.And  it is almost certain that  Sridevi’s younger daughter Khushi will also be launched by Karan  Johar.

 There is  another  male lead in Dostana 2 yet to be  cast.  We hear Siddharth Chaturvedi  of  Gully Boy has  been trying hard to  get noticed  for the part. But Karan Johar  doesn’t seem  much  interested.
