Mumbai: Karan Johar has confirmed that debutant Lakshya will be joining actors Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor in the second installment of 'Dostana'. The actor Lakshya aka Laksh Lalwani, who has played a lead role in Sony TV's historical show 'Porus' had made his small screen debut with MTV's 'Warrior High' in 2015 and was also a contestant in 'Roadies X2'. Kjo said the newbie has no Bollywood backings and went through a legit audition process answering queries over his film industry connections.
