Karan Johar casts newcomer Lakshya in ‘Dostana 2’

Karan Johar casts newcomer Lakshya in ‘Dostana 2’”

The film will star Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan in the lead roles. The fog of secrecy, fortunately, has been lifted as the producer-director has made his new find known to the world.

A couple of months ago, Karan Johar announced the sequel to 2008 release Dostana. While K Jo announced the film's first two leads-Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor-in June this year, the third lead was yet to be announced. The actor who has his roots in TV, went through a rigorous selection process that included auditions and photoshoots. "Am grateful to Shanoo Sharma for introducing LAKSHYA to @DharmaMovies", tweeted Karan Johar. Talking to a number one day by day about launching Lakshya, Karan Johar stated, "I'm excited to take the Dostana franchise ahead with Kartik and Janhvi, and will't wait to create some desi boy-girl insanity with them". Lakshya will be making his debut with us in Dostana 2 and from thereon, we hope to start a solid cinematic journey together!

For those who do not want television - Lakshya is a big face there. We are proud to have introduced over 20 first-time filmmakers and over seven actors in the recent past.

The debutant has a four-film deal with Dharma Productions that will include movie projects and digital projects. We are excited to introduce our newest addition to the Dharma family, Lakshya. Dharma Production even shared a small clip before the announcement of 'Dostana 2" with the typical beat of "Maa Da Ladla' song, asking the viewers to guess the upcoming movie.

Soon after Lakshya was introduced, netizens bombarded Karan with questions. "Lakshya has been chosen after a series of auditions and test shoots".
