Ever since Dharma Productions asked Kartik Aaryan to leave Dostana 2. The film is making headlines, yesterday Akshay Kumar was trending for the role. Today, Rajkummar Rao’s name has popped up in many reports.
Directed by Collin D’Cunha Dostana 2 stars Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya Lalwani. The film already went on the floor and the team shot for a 20-day schedule. According to the reports, the production house parted away with the actor due to his unprofessional behaviour.
Now it is being reported that Rajkummar may fit the bill. Interestingly he was the first choice when the film was announced 2 years ago. However, that didn’t happen due to his prior commitments.
A source was quoted as saying, “Dharma Productions is considering to bring Rajkummar Rao on board for Dostana 2. He was their first choice when the project was being made but at the time, he couldn’t do the film due to his dates. Now, that makers are keen on enlisting someone, they are once again thinking of Rao who was fit for the role. Interestingly, Rao and Janhvi Kapoor recently worked together in horror-comedy Roohi and have a great work rapport.”
The source further adds, “Karan Johar is still figuring out who to cast for the lead role. The director Collin D’Cunha is currently working making changes in the script, accordingly.”
While there are a lot of speculations around the film, only time will tell who eventually gets the role.
