After Kartik Aaryan was ousted from Dostana 2, Karan Johar has devised a special plan to continue casting the film. While speculation has already surfaced suggesting the names of several actors, here’s a drug behind the scenes.
“Karan had several meetings with his creative team and director to think about casting. The names they cited are Akshay Kumar, Rajkummar Rao, Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and Siddhant Chaturvedi. However, Karan Johar is doing his best. to get Akshay on board the movie, as he’s the biggest star of all the names mentioned and will take the Dostana franchise to the next level, “a source said Bollywood Hungama.
That’s not all; the idea behind Akshay’s casting is also simple. Karan Johar wants an outsider to avoid any debate between insiders and outsiders giving nepotism a rebirth. Therefore, the first choice is Akshay. But if things don’t work out, he will move forward to explore collaboration with d “other players. Of the 5 shortlisted names, 4 are outsiders and therefore a safe bet for the moment. The central idea is to replace an outsider by an outsider”, added the source.
But no one has officially come on board the film yet. Everything is in the nascent phase and the Dharma team will only lock down the cast once the lockout restrictions are lifted. Once the cast is locked, a new filming schedule will be established based on the combination dates of all the actors. Dostana 2 stars Janhvi Kapoor and newbie Lakshya in the lead. The new actor on board will play the character of Janhvi Kapoor’s brother and the story of Dostana 2 revolves around how a brother and sister fall for the same guy.
