Dostana 2 has escalated fans' excitement not just because it is the sequel to popular comedy franchise Dostana, the first film which was released in 2008 but also because two young stars-Kartik and Janhvi will be seen sharing the screen space for the first time. Through Dostana 2, KJo is also introducing non-Bollywood Dharma kid Lakshya, who has worked in TV shows such as Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil, Adhuri Kahaani Hamari and Porus.
In June this year, Karan had announced that Kartik and Janhvi would star in Dostana 2. He had written: “The return of the franchise with unlimited madness! @TheAaryanKartik, #Janhvi & a soon to be launched fresh face - making it the trio for #Dostana2, directed by @CollinDcunha.
