We had informed our readers a few months ago that Karan Johar will be launching a new face with Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan starrer Dostana 2 and now, he has introduced his new find Lakshya to the world. Karan, who has been accused of being the ‘Flagbearer of Nepotism’ has revealed that Lakshya bagged the role on his own merit.
Lakshya got selected after undergoing a rigorous selection process including auditions and photo shoots. Lakshya has signed a four-film contract, which includes films and digital projects, with KJo’s Dharma Productions.
Talking about his new recruit, Karan Johar said, “We believe in introducing new talent to the film fraternity. We are proud to have introduced over 20 first-time filmmakers and seven actors in the recent past. We are excited to introduce Lakshya, the newest addition to the family. We will be introducing him in Dostana 2. He was chosen after a series of meticulous auditions and test shoots. We are thrilled to engulf him in our creative world and look forward to creating celluloid magic together.”
Directed by Collin D’Cunha, Dostana 2 is the sequel to Karan’s 2008 release Dostana, which had starred Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead roles.
