This is a new brother-sister pairing that KJo is introducing with the movie.”
The source added that the third lead in the film is going to be the actual love interest of both the stars in the film. “The reason why they called the third lead ‘a suitable boy’ is because both Janhvi and Kartik have the same love interest, to be essayed by this newcomer that Dharma plans to launch with the sequel,” revealed the source.
