The makers of 2008-hit film Dostana are unlikely to pursue its sequel as the subject of homosexuality has been explored in lot of movies, says actor John Abraham. The film was made at a time when the subject of same sex relationships were almost treated like a taboo.
“I don’t think Karan Johar (producer of Dostana) would want to make Dostana 2. I think homosexuality as a topic has been explored too much. I don’t think what you found funny five years back may not be funny today. There are some films that should be left alone. Even I feel Dostana 2 should be left like that,” John said.
The Tarun Mansukhani-directed film, Dostana, told the story of two men – John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan – who pretended to be a gay couple in order to secure an apartment. Both fall in love with the same girl (played by Priyanka Chopra) and strive to win her heart, only to realise that she loves someone else. Finally the three manage to remain friends.
Actor Varun Dhawan had earlier said that he and John, his co-star in Dishoom, would make a good pair if someone ever decides to make a Dostana 2.
According to reports the makers were planning to make a sequel to Dostana, but nothing is seen on the horizon. – CINEWS
