‘Dostana’, the next bollywood movie from producer Karan Johar promises to be different, if we are to believe the man himself. It’s a love story with a twist, Karan had to say this about the movie ‘All I can say on record is that, we’ve never had a love triangle like this before, and, you’ll never see Abhishek and John playing something like this again‘, I really want to believe you this time, and I hope it turns out to be something different than other tearjerkers you and your team is now so famously associated with.
Dostana bears the same name as the Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha & Zeenat Aman starer 1980′s movie produced by Karan’s father Yash Johar. This movie was about two childhood friends and their friendship, the newer version of the movie appears to have the same set-up which the producer vehemently denies.
The new Dostana stars Abhishek Bacchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra in the lead, this flick is directed by Karan’s assistant Tarun Mansukhani. This movie will be entirely shot in Miami, Florida and the shooting for this movie is already underway. Watch the teaser below (courtesy youtube.com)
Karan has also moved away from his fixation of titling his movies with the first letter being ‘K’, sources suggest that Karan was coerced out of this superstition by his buddy and pal Shahrukh Khan.
I seriously have my doubts about the new Dostana delivering something really radical from the regular fare that Karan Johar has been periodically doling out so far, personally I feel it will be a mix of songs, exotic locales, few laughs and lots of tears.
