Karan Johar's 2008 release 'Dostana' featuring Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, and John Abraham is ever so fresh in our memories and fans have been eagerly waiting for a sequel to be made on the film. More so, ever since KJo has given a green signal to the sequel of the rom-com, speculations have been made as to what the cast of the sequel would look like.


And well; if the rumor mill is anything to go by, there has been an immense uproar about ‘Raazi' actress Alia Bhatt being locked as the female lead alongside two male parallels. 


However; putting an end to all the gossip mongers, Karan has finally come out with a statement on his Twitter handle, rubbishing any such progression. The ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' director wrote," For the record.....NO ONE has been officially approached for DOSTANA 2!!!! Some thoughts and ideas are underway but nothing official has moved......" 

There had been rumors wherein a certain source too was quoted saying," The conversation has begun, and Alia has liked the idea. She will hear the final script and close the formalities soon. Casting for her two male co-stars is presently underway after which Karan will make the final announcement. Preproduction on the film has also begun."


However; Karan's statement has put any such speculation to rest once and for all. Fan's will have to be content at the moment with the fan that the much-loved rom-com is getting a sequel which had been suggested by the ‘Dhadak' filmmaker himself when in an earlier interview.


Although the delay in the making of Dostana 2 is best known to Karan Johar, we sure can understand that after the humongous success of Dostana; the makers want to have all their R&D spick and span because it will be no cakewalk to match up to the dynamic duo of Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham.
