Bollywood sequels leaving traces of the original is one-off, as the new story takes over the essence of the original. However, there are handfuls of sequels that have managed to surpass the standard set by the original. Karan Johar's Dostana had become a cult by depicting a formulaic love story with a new arc of emotions and humour.


As the sequel to the movie was announced recently, sources had claimed that the film will undergo casting changes and will feature a new cast in the film. According to the reports, Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor have been roped in to play the leads in the film.


A source close to the development informed a leading entertainment portal, "Karan Johar always wanted to make Dostana 2, especially after the first film worked so well. Now finally he has a script for the film, which of course will speed up production. As for the cast, Karan has finalized both Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor, and is currently looking out for the third lead role that will again be a male lead."


Revealing the details of the film, the source continued, "Like the first film this one too will be directed by Tarun Mansukhani. The only difference will be the story and cast that will change. But as of now with the hunt still on, the film is still a long way off from going on floor."


The original Dostana had featured John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra in the lead roles. The movie, which was helmed by Tarun Mansukhani raked in good box office numbers.
