Well, we must say, Lakshya does look like one dashing newcomer! Lakshya will be sharing screen space with Kartik Aryan and Janhvi Kapoor in Dostana 2.

Dostana (2008) starred Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra, and was directed by Tarun Mansukhani. Dostana 2 will be directed by newcomer Collin D'Cunha. Karan Johar had taken to Twitter to announce the lead cast of the movie, and also to announce that a fresh face would be coming on board. 

Speaking about the movie, Janhvi Kapoor said in a recent interview, "I'm just really excited to be a part of this film! Not just because of what it's trying to say but also because the story is just so much fun. I'm happy we're talking about this subject more and more in cinema and normalising it."

Karan Johar, too, in a recent interview spoke about the film. 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' 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."
