Dharma production, which is currently scripting the sequel for John Abraham-Abhishek Bachchan-starrer Dostana, may rope in Kartik Aaryan as one of the leads, as per sources.
“Dostana 2 could in all probablity mark Kartik Aaryan’s first project with Dharma productions. He has been waiting long to work with Dharma and this finally looks to be happening with the discussion to cast Kartik moving in the right direction. Karan is impressed with Kartik’s talent and believes he has it in him to pull off a role in Dostana 2,” the source said.
Dostana 2 will be mounted on a bigger and larger scale and will have other new actors taking the franchise forward. Speculations are rife that this time around there will be lesbian love theme as well that will play out. “The makers don’t just want to make the film one dimensional by taking forward the story from part one. To add more zing to it, the movie will also sensitively explore a lesbian love story through the film,” the source added.
Earlier, rumours suggested that Alia Bhatt would be roped in as the female lead in the film. However, Karan denied the same and said that casting is yet to be decided upon.
