Much has been speculated about filmmaker Karan Johar’s much-awaited upcoming production Student of The Year 2, which is helmed by Punit Malhotra. While the filmmaker-producer revealed Tiger Shroff as the male protagonist, there was no announcement about the female lead. However, unlike the first part, where there were two heroes and one heroine, the sequel will have two female actors cast opposite Tiger Shroff. With Tiger being confirmed in the titular role, Karan, in his recent tweet, had revealed that the names of the ‘two’ leading ladies of the film will be announced next week.

Speculations were rife that Chunky Pandey’s daughter will make her debut in the second installment of the franchise and Alia Bhatt, who was the female lead in the first part, has been roped in for SOTY 2 too. There were also reports that Tiger Shroff’s alleged girlfriend Disha Patani and Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar are being considered for the parts. However, the leading ladies have been confirmed.

According to a report in a leading daily, Karan Johar has found his leading ladies for his upcoming venture SOTY 2. Yes, you read that right. Karan is all set to cast Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday in the film. Reportedly, Karan auditioned close to 800 girls for the part and has finalised Ananya and Tara for the roles. In a statement to a leading daily, a source said, “Karan, Tiger Shroff and director Punit Malhotra were present at the audition where Ananya was asked to read out Alia’s lines from Student Of The Year. And Ananya sailed through like a professional.” The latest reports suggest that Alia Bhatt may also be doing a special appearance in the film. She had said that Karan may find a suitable role for her in the sequel as well. ALSO READ: Tiger Shroff Starrer Student Of The Year 2 Gets A Release Date And Two Leading Ladies – Read Tweet
