A few weeks ago Karan Johar announced that the eagerly anticipated movie ‘Dostana 2’ will star a fresh cast of Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan. While everyone assumed that they would be paired opposite one another in the movie, we now hear that Janhvi and Kartik will play siblings vying for the affections of the same person in ‘Dostana 2’.

Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying, “Kartik and Janhvi are not paired opposite each other in Dostana 2. In fact, they are playing siblings in the film. This is a new brother-sister pairing that KJo is introducing with the movie.”

The source continued, “The reason why they called the third lead ‘a suitable boy’ is because both Janhvi and Kartik have the same love interest, to be essayed by this newcomer that Dharma plans to launch with the sequel.” Dostana, the 2008 original, starred Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham as the leads.

In his tweet announcing Dostana 2, Karan had written, “The return of the franchise with unlimited madness! @TheAaryanKartik, #Janhvi & a soon to be launched fresh face - making it the trio for #Dostana2, directed by @CollinDcunha. Watch out for the third suitable boy!”

‘Dostana’, the 2008 original, starred Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham as the leads. The movie was a huge hit.
