Karan Johar`s Funda for Dostana 2: No Insider, Only Outsider To Avoid nepotism Debate
After Kartik Aaryan was kicked out of Dostana 2, Karan Johar came up with a special plan to move forward with the movie selection. While speculation has already surfaced referring to the names of multiple actors, there’s an internal numbness behind the scenes here.
Karan has had several meetings with his creative team and the director to brainstorm casting ideas. The names they have identified include Akshay Kumar, Rajkumar Rao, Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra, and Siddhant Chaturvedi. However, Karan Johar tries his best to get Akshay to join the team, since he is the biggest star of the movie. Among all the mentioned names he will take the Dostana franchise to the next level, ”a source told Glammpop.
This is not everything; The idea behind casting Akshay is also simple. “Karan Johar wants an outsider to avoid any internal versus external discussion that gives nepotism rebirth. Therefore, the first choice is Akshay. But if things don’t work out, he will continue to explore collaborations with the other actors. Among the five abbreviated names, 4 are outsiders, and therefore a safe bet for now. The basic idea is to replace an outsider with an outsider, “the source also told us.
But no one is officially in the movie right now. Everything is in the early stages and the cast of Dharma will be closing the cast once the lockdown restrictions are lifted. Once the cast is locked , a new cast based on mixed dates will be scheduled for the entire cast. Dostana 2 features Janhvi Kapoor and features Lakshya in the lead. The new actor on the board will play the character of Janhvi Kapoor’s brother. The story of Dostana 2 revolves around how brother and sister fall for the same man.
