Mumbai: Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra might have won millions of hearts by her desi girl act in ‘Dostana’, but the actress got the shock of her life when she was unceremoniously kicked out of its much awaited sequel ‘Dostana 2’.

Apparently, Tarun Mansukhani’s ‘Dostana 2’, which stars Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Katrina Kaif does not include Priyanka Chopra – the original heroine of ‘Dostana’.

Talking to a news daily, Mansukhani said, “‘Dostana 2’ is very much on. The film stars Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Katrina Kaif.”

Not long ago, Tarun and Priyanka together shot for an ad film, where the hottie did not shy away from asking the director to cast her in ‘Dostana 2’.

“Priyanka and Tarun gelled very well during ‘Dostana’. And that day at Madh Island, Mansukhani was also acting in the commercial. So, the camaraderie had increased. The actress grabbed this opportunity to ask him for a role. ‘I hope I am doing something in ‘Dostana 2’’, she asked,” said an eyewitness.

“The director had no other option but to smile back,” added the source. Well, Priyanka Chopra misread that smile and though that she was very much part of the film.

“Though Priyanka has been going around saying that there is something for her in ‘Dostana 2’, the fact is that there is nothing till date. Apparently, she wrongly took Mansukhani’s smile for a ‘yes’,” added the source.

Meanwhile, a source explained why Tarun did not directly inform Priyanka. “Tarun couldn’t tell Priyanka anything concrete. It wouldn’t have looked nice. Also, Karan Johar may decide to have her in the film in some manner? But as of now, it is certain that there is nothing at all for her in the film,” said the source.

Folks, is Katrina behind Priyanka’s ouster from ‘Dostana 2’?
