Since your friend has taken job, chance of getting your money back are remote. You are already delayed by two years, therefore without any delay initiate legal action against him. Firstly get legal notice issued claiming return of entire amount and then proceed to file civil suit. He will ask for further time, but do not believe him, otherwise you will miss limitation to file suit. See if he has any property in his name, immediately file case for recovery and get it attached.
