Rajkummar Rao is recently in news for his upcoming film, ‘Judgemental Hai Kya’ opposite Kangana Ranaut. Much before Kartik Aaryan was confirmed to star in ‘Dostana 2′, Rajkummar Rao was rumored to be the main lead in the film. Guess what? He is not a part of Dostana 2.
Rajkummar Rao confirmed that he is not a part of Dostana 2 while an interview with an entertainment website. He admitted that he and Karan Johar talked about it but somehow, it didn’t work out. He said,
“About Dostana 2, I met Karan. Of course, I have immense respect for him but this one did not work out but I am sure very soon you will hear something very exciting from both of us,”
He also cleared that he is neither doing ‘Dostana 2′ nor ‘Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan‘. With Rajkummar Rao, Sidharth Malhotra was also rumored as the “suitable boy” in the trio but the news proved to be just a rumor.
A few days ago, Karan Johar leaving all the speculations behind, took to his Instagram to post a short teasing video of Dostana 2. In the video, he revealed the two main lead actors Jahnvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan. The makers have created a very suspicious situation as the third character is still to be revealed. But, one thing that is sure is that the third one will be a fresh face and that too, the “suitable boy”!
Have a look at Karan’s post:
Earlier, Dostana released in 2008 and starred John Abraham, Priyanka Chopra, and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead. In the prequel, John and Abhishek pretended to be gay in order to share an apartment with Priyanka Chopra, but eventually, both fell in love with her. Later, they discovered that the ‘Desi Girl’ was in love with her boss, Bobby Deol. Dostana was directed by Tarun Mansukhani whereas the sequel will be directed by Collin D’Cunha. Collin D’Cunha has worked in films like- Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Sanju as an assistant director. And now, he is ready to make his full-fledged directorial debut with Dostana 2.
Meanwhile, Rajkummar is currently all set for the release of his upcoming film, ‘Judgemental Hai Kya’. The film is directed by Prakash Kovelamudi. The film also features Kangana Ranaut, Jimmy Shergill, and Amyra Dastur as co-stars. Judgemental Hai Kya will release in theatres on July 26. Apart from this, Rajkummar has some other projects lineup including Made in China, Roohiafza, and Turram Khan.
