Akshay Kumar In Dostana 2? Karan Johar Reacts



Dostana 2

Akshay Kumar In Dostana 2

The  beleaguered  project Dostana 2, in the pipeline  for ten   years, is  yet to get its final cast. After  Kartik  Aaryan’s  exit from the  project  in April , the strong  buzz doing the rounds is that Akshay Kumar has  taken over the  project and that the  other two  lead actors in the  project Janhvi Kapoor and newcomer Laksh Lalvani are  to be replaced.

 However when I touched base with Karan  Johar he he said, “Not true  at all. Janhvi  and Laksh are  very  much part  of Dostana 2.”

As for  the  other  lead that Kartik Aaryan vacated is Akshay Kumar   taking over?

Karan  reply” “My lips are sealed. Will announce soon.”

Ridden with  problems from the start  the  project finally took  off in  2018  .Tarun Mansukhani who directed  the hot homophobic  hit  Dostana in  2008  was  no longer helming the sequel.A  new director Colin De Cunha   was  all set to direct  Dostana 2 with Janhvi Kapoor ,Kartik Aaryan and newcomer Laksh in the lead..

The  project  was  troubled from the start. 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  Johar announced 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.

Finally Karan  roped in another director and  fresh cast.

Earlier this year Kartik Aaryan   opted  out  of Dostana 2 after he  expressed some  doubts and misgivings  about the script. Producer  Karan Johar loftily announced he  would  get another A-lister to replace  Kartik.

 Looks  like Karan will keep his word.
