With the cast, the costumes, the songs, the location, and the slightly progressive take on homosexuality, which was way ahead of its time in 2008, Dostana was a milestone in Hindi cinema from Dharma Productions. Needless to say, the expectations from its sequel are quite high. The movie originally starred Kartik Aaryan, Janhvi Kapoor, and TV actor Lakshya and was directed by Collin D’Cunha. However, it was put on hold when Kartik Aaryan was dropped from the project.

Starring Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Meezaan Jaffrey and PranitaShubhash, the makers have decided to release it digitally.
