The original Dostana starring John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan, and Priyanka Chopra released in 2008. None of the lead actors from the original film will play a role in the sequel. In a recent interview with TNN, John Abraham admitted to being cool about it.
He said he wasn't feeling bad about not being a part of the new film, which is also produced by Karan Johar. John called KJo a very creative person and said that Dostana 2 will also definitely contain a lot of entertainment, similar to its predecessor. He added that Karan must have something interesting in mind, given that he is well known to come up with successful projects.
John also revealed that he prefers to detach himself from the characters he has played after the film releases because he doesn’t see a point in holding on to them. Admitting that he was only in one film of successful franchises like Housefull and Race, the actor said that it’s nice when different actors come on board because it gives the audience something new to look forward to. Adding that everyone deserves a chance, John said that he would love to see Tiger Shroff taking his action forward.
