Dostana 2 release date confirmed
After a lot of faffing around, the sequel to the Abhishek-John-Priyanka starrer Dostana, Dostana 2 is finally ready to roll. The latest buzz doing the rounds is that Karan Johar is already blocking dates specifically for its release, and that the date is more than likely to be Independence Day 2014 (15 August).
"The film was supposed to release on August 15, 2013 but thanks to unavoidable delays, the project kept on postponing. Now the idea is to make the most of the national holiday as well as of the coincidence that it's a Friday; the quintessential day for a movie release in India," says a well-placed source to NDTV Movies.
"Since it's almost five years since Dostana, rumours are bound to take place. Anyway it's going to be a family entertainer and with the date fixed, the film has got a firm direction to move towards," concludes the source.
The shooting for the sequel is expected to commence in September or October this year, with Tarun Mansukhani returning to direct.
While John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan will return in the sequel, the film’s leading lady this time round is apparently Katrina Kaif and not Priyanka Chopra, who’s character lives happily ever after with Bobby Deol’s character in the first one. Also rumours are rife that the sequel will not be based in Miami but in London instead.
