It is official, B-town’s new faces Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan were roped in for the much awaited sequel to the 2008 film Dostana.
Tarun Manusukhani’s Dostana featured Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham and Abhishek Bacchan in the lead roles. This film stood among the most loved films of the early 2000s. Speculations about the second installment have been around for a while now and producer Karan Johar (KJo) finally announced the sequel, Dostana 2.
The return of the franchise with unlimited madness! @TheAaryanKartik, #Janhvi & a soon to be launched fresh face – making it the trio for #Dostana2, directed by @CollinDcunha. Watch out for the third suitable boy!@apoorvamehta18 @dharmamovies pic.twitter.com/XtpSHGMUrv

Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan will be seen playing the lead roles, along with another actor making his debut with Dostana 2. Not a lot of details were given about this new actor. A day ago, Karan Johar put up a teaser video, which pretty much gave away a lot of information. This film will be directed by first timer Colin D. Cunha, who previously worked as an assistant director on films Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and NH10.
Sharing his excitement, KJo 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’ (his banner) 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.’”
The storyline of Dostana 2 will be similar to the first installment, while tackling the topic of homosexuality with a little bit more sensitivity.
Bankrolled by Dharma Productions, this humour driven film is expected to go on floors by the end of this year.
Apart from this, Jahnvi Kapoor will also be seen Karan Johar’s Takht. Kartik Aaryan, on the other hand, will be a part of the Imtiaz Ali film Love Aaj Kal 2, alongside Sara Ali Khan.
We will have to wait and see whether the second installment of Dostana will be as good as the first one.

Sharing his excitement, Himesh Reshammiya said, “We have made these songs with a lot of love and songs which are timeless melodies and have a shelf life like my other songs. This film has lovely characters and song situations which take the story forward and not even a single song is out of place or forced in the story and yet every song has tremendous audio and visual appeal and personal identification for every music lover in the Country. Happy Hardy and Heer has a beautiful script which is a very entertaining love story for which it was very important to have great music and I’m really proud of the script and the music of the film.”

SRK To Be Honoured With Honorary Doctorate Degree By La Trobe University
B-Town’s King, Shah Rukh Khan (SRK,) is undoubtedly one of India’s most loved actors. The Superstar’s work has been crossing borders for a while now, resulting in him being loved across the globe. Recently, La Trobe University decided to award SRK with their highest accolade, the Honorary Doctor Of Letters, at the Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne (IFFM.)
We all are familiar with Shah Rukh Khan, the actor and producer. However, there is a side to SRK of which not many of us are aware. SRK is the pioneer of the Meer Foundation, through which he has been changing lives for years now.
Named after SRK’s father Meer Taj Mohammed Khan, the Meer Foundation aims to support underprivileged children and fight for women’s empowerment. The key focus area under women empowerment is to support acid attack survivors. The Meer foundation has been at the forefront of supporting victims with medical, financial and legal aid as well as rehabilitation and livelihood support.
This honorary doctorate by La Trobe University is in recognition of SRK’s incredible work as a philanthropist and his unparalleled contribution to Indian cinema. La Trobe is the first Australian University to honour SRK with a doctorate.
Speaking about this achievement, the Superstar said, “I’m proud to be conferred with a great University like La Trobe which has a long-standing relationship with Indian culture and impressive track record in advocating for women’s equality. I feel truly privileged to receive this Honorary Doctorate and I would like to sincerely thank La Trobe for choosing to recognize my achievements in such a humbling way.”
The Doctor of Letters will be presented to SRK on August 9th, 2019, during his visit to Australia for the Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne.
We congratulate King Khan for this incredible achievement.
WAR Teaser Out Now
The official teaser of Yash Raj Films’ WAR just dropped. Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff look phenomenal in the action entertainer.
Yash Raj Films finally announced the title of its most anticipated film as WAR. This film brings together two of the biggest superstars of our generation in a full fledged action avatar. On July 15th, the makers of the film took to social media to announce the teaser release.
“Two heroes. One #WAR!
Presenting @iHrithik VS @iTIGERSHROFF in #WarTeaser. Whose team are you on? #HrithikVsTiger.” the tweet read.
— Yash Raj Films (@yrf) July 15, 2019
In the 53 second teaser, we witness Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff push their limits to pull off death defying action stunts like never before, in a massive shootdown against each other. We must say, both the stars look incredible in the teaser.
With blazing guns, bomb blasts, jaw dropping bike stunts and picturesque locations, this film promises a visual treat to action lovers.
Helmed by Siddharth Anand, this film also stars Befikre star Vaani Kapoor as the female lead.
Speaking about the film, Anand said, “When you bring two of the biggest and the best action superstars of India in one film and pit them against each other, you need a title that justifies the promise of a massive showdown. Hrithik and Tiger will be seen going at each other ferociously and mercilessly and audiences will want to see who outwits whom in this incredible fight. WAR is the only title that could have delivered on this big promise and justifies the level of an action spectacle that the film is trying to present to audiences globally.”
While Hrithik Roshan’s latest release Super 30 managed to garner the love and attention of the audience, Shroff’s last venture Student Of The Year 2 received backlash from the critics and audience for its unrealistic portrayal of college life. Both these actors will now be looking at banking big with WAR.
This quintessential action thriller is all set to release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on October 2nd this year.

Satte Pe Satta Remake – Deepika Padukone-Hrithik Roshan To Unite?
B- town’s biggest names Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone are likely to unite for the remake of Satte Pe Satta (1982.)
Hrithik Roshan’s latest release, Super 30, is being praised by audience all through the Country. Even before Roshan can celebrate this success, people are already curious to know what the superstar’s next film is.
If reports are to be believed, Hrithik Roshan will, alongside Deepika Padukone, star in the remake of Satte Pe Satta, helmed by Farah Khan.
Giving the inside details about the project, a source close to the film said, “Both Farah and Rohit wanted Deepika Padukone in the movie because not only do they love her but she fits the role to the T. When DP [Deepika Padukone] debuted, everyone felt she had an uncanny resemblance to Hema ji in terms of her beauty as well. When Farah narrated the story to DP, she loved it and instantly gave her nod.”
The source further added, “Farah [Khan] has already discussed the idea with Hrithik Roshan, who has also given a verbal nod to the project. Farah has reworked the whole script and designed it to suit the contemporary times. They needed a superstar who would command the same screen presence as Big B and Duggu was their first choice.”
Hrithik Roshan, however, when asked about the topic in an interview, dismissed the topic intelligently. “No. I don’t think you should go by news like that. Until I say what my next film is, I don’t think you should…Like I said, let me first look at which films I should do next. I will let you know,” he said.
If this collaboration actually happens, it will be the first time we see Deepika and Hrithik together on screen. This film will also bring together Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty for the first time. While Farah Khan will direct this film, Rohit Shetty will produce it.
Deepika Padukone, who has been away from the silver screen for almost a year now, will be seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak and Kabir Khan’s ’83, alongside husband Ranveer Singh, next year.
We will have to wait and see if she agrees to work on the Satte Pe Satta remake.
