Karan Johar refutes news about Janhvi Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra starring in Dostana sequel
While the third lead is yet to be finalised, Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor will be replacing two of the stars from the original trio.
Karan Johar has refuted all the speculations revolving around the Dostana sequel. It was being said that Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor would be replacing two of the stars from the original trio of Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra. However, Johar took to Twitter and made it clear that the news is completely false.
Hello!!! All news circulating about DOSTANA 2 is untrue!!! Lots of speculation which is entirely baseless!!!

According to a report published by Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the production said Karan Johar was always keen on making Dostana 2 since the original was a hit and now that the scripting is done, he is bound to speed up the whole process. However, the third lead role is yet to be finalised. The source also mentioned “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."
Tarun Mansukhani had directed Dostana in 2008, which went on to garner critical and commercial acclaim. It portrayed homosexuality in an unrestrained manner and dealt with the story of two men pretending to be gay in order to get an apartment with a woman. They fall in love with her but she ends up being involved with someone else (Bobby Deol). The film's lively music, colourful shots of Miami and the chemistry of the lead actors made it a win.
Madhuri Dixit will play the role of a Bollywood icon, Anamika Anand in the series, who seemingly has a perfect life. The series was earlier known as Finding Anamika.
