The suspense is finally over. Speculations about the second installment of Dostana have been rife for some time now, with names of various actors doing the rounds. However, it's now official that Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor have been finalised as the leads of Dostana 2.

While Janhvi Kapoor was appreciated for her performance in Dhadak and is seen as a talent to watch out for, Kartik Aaryan, after his recent spate of films, has emerged as a teen heart-throb. A newcomer will join the two actors, to complete the triangular romantic-comedy. The film will also see producer Karan Johar introducing a new director, Collin D'Cunha.
