Assisting KJo in 1998 with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and debuting in 2008 with Dostana director Tarun Mansukhani has become a known name. Recently there have been questions on whether Dostana 2 will even commence or not after recent reports of Tarun Mansukhani being asked to leave Dharma Productions by none other than Karan Johar himself.
Dostana 2 has been on hold for quite a few years now and it seems that Tarun was getting restless as anyone would by not having anything to do or in Tarun’s case re-writing the script. A source from the production house conveyed that “…Nothing was really moving forward. Probably, Tarun became restless with the endless ‘reworking’ of scripts. He started approaching other producers. Karan found out and was very upset. He asked Tarun to leave Dharma”.
Reasons for the delay of the movie are blurry with it being said that Tarun and KJo were having trouble with their thoughts for the sequel as their differences were clashing. Now, the sequel lays in KJo’s hands and only time will tell if he decides to continue with the sequel with another director or end it for once and for all.
Maybe Tarun will find another team to work with and the sequel will go but as of now no one was available for commenting.
