After making us go rolling on the floor laughing with Dostana in 2008, Karan Johar is back with its sequel after 11 long years. Starring Kartik Aaryan, Janhvi Kapoor and Lakshya, Dostana 2 is all set to delve into yet another hilarious tale with hints of gay love. Ever since the film was announced back in June, it made the right amount of noise, leaving fans excited. And now, after months of preparations, it seems the film is all set to go on floors. As per reports of a leading daily, sources close to Dostana 2 informed that the film is scheduled to mount on sets in the first week of November. The report further had it that Janhvi, Kartik and Lakshya will be shooting for the first schedule in Chandigarh, Patiala and other regions in the North of India for around 22 days. Post that, they will be starting with the second schedule at International locations.
"Kartik and Janhvi sport avatars that are a departure from everything one has seen on screen so far. Filming is slated to start in the first week of November,” the source told the daily.

Speaking of Dostana 2, like the previous installment, starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham, the sequel too features two actors and one actress. However, it is still unclear whether a romantic angle between Janhvi, Kartik and Lakshya will be formed. The film will be bankrolled by Karan under his banner Dharma Productions. Dostana 2, doesn't just mark the debut of director Collin D'Cunha but also of Lakshya, who was formerly known by the name of Laksh Lalvani, a popular face on TV. The film is likely to release in 2020.
