Rajkummar to star in Karan’s ‘Dostana 2’?

Earlier reports suggested that Rajkummar Rao was being approached to star alongside Ayushmann Khurrana in the gay love story titled ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’. However, it was reported that the actor declined the role after which the makers locked Jitendra Kumar to play the love interest of Ayushmann.
However, latest reports suggest that the reason why Rajkummar Rao didn’t come on board the project is that the actor has been already roped in to play the lead in Karan Johar‘s sequel to 2008 film ‘Dostana’. The sequel ‘Dostana 2’ will be a gay love story and Rajkummar has been cast to play a gay character. The 2008 film starring Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham told the story of two straight men pretending to be a gay couple to woo a girl they like.

However, ‘Dostana 2’ will reportedly see two gay men pretending to be straight. Reports also suggest that the makers are on a search to find Rajkummar’s co-star in the film. The film is expected to go on the floors by next year and Tarun Mansukhani, who helmed the previous film, will not be directing the sequel.

Speaking about ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’, reports suggest that Kartik Aryan, Ishaan Khatter and Arjun Mathur were also approached to play the role opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. However, the actors declined to take up the role for reasons best known to them.
