Helmed by Collin D’ Cunha, Dostana 2 is produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Johar and Apoorva Mehta. There were speculations suggesting Rajkummar Rao could play the third lead. However, it seems like KJo wants a fresh face. A source had previously told Pinkvilla, “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 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.”
