Karan Johar introduces “suitable boy” for Dostana 2, netizens ask “Who is Lakshya?”


Mumbai: Karan Johar on Thursday introduced the “suitable boy” as Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor’s co-star in Dostana 2 and it is none other than Television actor Lakshya.

Taking to his social media accounts, Karan revealed the third actor joining the film would be Lakshya, a newbie whom he is launching.



Netizens on Instagram, who assumed that Lakshya must be a star kid, just had one query for Karan Johar, who is often criticised for nepotism.

Karan Johar’s response to inquisitive netizens arrived soon after Lakshya was introduced as the new Dharma hero. In another tweet, the filmmaker cleared that Lakshya is not from the film industry and has been selected through a “legit audition process”.



Earlier, Karan had announced the sequel of the 2008 comedy-drama ‘Dostana’ and tweeted that apart from Kartik and Janhvi, the film will star a ‘suitable boy.’

The film directed by Collin D’Cunha is penned by Navjot Gulati, Sumit Aroraa, Rishabh Sharma and D’Cunha.

Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham, and Abhishek Bachchan-starrer 2008 release ‘Dostana’ caused quite a stir among the audience with its unique and humorous plotline and the fact that it dealt with the less talked about subject of homosexuality.

For all those asking ‘Who is Dostana 2 actor Lakshya?’, here is the answer.

Dostana 2 actor Lakshya, whose real name is Laksh Lalwani, does not belong to a powerful film family. He has made a name for himself on the small screen after making his debut as a contestant on the reality show Roadies X2.

Lakshya went on to become a household name with the fantasy drama Adhuri Kahaani Hamari on &TV. He shared the screen with rumoured girlfriend Rashami Desai in the show.

Later, he aced the romantic genre with Balaji Telefilms’ popular show Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil. He played the role of Dhrashti Dhami’s ex-fiance in the show.

However, it was Sony TV’s historical drama Porus which boosted Lakshya’s career.
