In August 2018, Karan Johar had green-lit the sequel to the hit rom-com Dostana. The film maker has now started work on the film and he wants two fresh male leads flanked by a A-list actress to complete the love triangle. It has been confirmed that Alia Bhatt will be stepping into the shoes of Priyanka Chopra and play the lead in the sequel. At the moment, Alia is a part of Karan’s productions Kalank, Brahmastra and Takht.
Alia has been approached about the project and she has liked the idea. The search for the two male leads is ongoing and once they are finalized, Karan Johar will make an announcement about the commencement of the project. Dostana was a massive hit in 2008 directed by Tarun Mansukhani and it revolved around two men who pretend to be gay to share an apartment with a girl and eventually fall in love with her. The original featured Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra in the lead roles.
