Karan Johar‘s Dostana was a path-breaking film after the slew of homophobic films Bollywood was making before it. Sure it promoted a lot of stereotypes as well, but the John AbrahamPriyanka Chopra Abhishek Bachchan trio was received well at the box-office. Ever since then, the makers have been planning a sequel for the same. The initial rumours surrounding the second installment was that Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan would star in the installments. More recently, there were rumours that Katrina Kaif would play the female lead alongside John and Abhishek.

Now recent reports in Mumbai Mirror suggests otherwise. It says that Alia Bhatt has been considered for the female lead for the film.

The actress is all set to hear the final script and close the formalities very soon and pre-production work has already begun. While Alia has been finalized for the part, KJo is still on the lookout for the two male actors. After closing in the male leads, Karan will be making an official announcement of the same.

This will be another interesting project in Alia’s pipeline for sure. I’m super excited to see who they will cast as Alia’s co-stars.

Any guesses?
