It was 2008 when Bollywood got its own Desi Girl and the hunt for her successor has been going on since then. John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra's Dostana was a hit at the box office and thoughts about having its sequel were discussed inside the closed-door meetings of Dharma Productions. Though efforts were made to put everything in place, nothing could impress Karan Johar until Collin D'Cunha came up with a script for Dostana 2 that had all the right ingredients.
What followed next was Karan hunting for his actors and finally settling for Janhvi Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan and Television actor and debutant Lakshya. The Dhadak actress apparently plays Aaryan's sister in the movie and the shooting of which has just begun. Pati Patni aur Woh actor took to his social media handles to share a picture from his first day of shooting and the journey ahead looks super fun for him. Janhvi was already in Amritsar when Kartik joined her on the movie's sets.

Karan Johar in his earlier interaction with Times of India had shared his excitement about taking the franchise ahead with Dostana 2. He said, "I am excited to take the Dostana franchise forward with Kartik and Janhvi, and can’t wait to create some desi boy-girl madness with them. This is Dharma Productions’ (his banner) first film with Kartik and we are looking forward to working with him. We will also be introducing a new male lead, who will join the incredible talent at our production house. Collin D’Cunha also makes his directorial debut with Dostana 2." This sure seems like the start of sweet beginnings.
