Karan Johar’s college drama Student Of The Year that released in 2012 and introduced Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan is finally getting a sequel. The film will be helmed by Punit Malhotra and backed by Dharma Productions. While the makers announced that Tiger Shroff will play the lead actor in the SOTY sequel, the names of the female leads were not announced. There were speculations that either Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor who are making their Bollywood debut this year will be a part of the high school drama. But we can now confirm that the makers have finalised on other girls. We hear Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria will be the leading ladies of SOTY 2.
A source close to the production house exclusively told us, “Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria are finalised for Student Of The Year 2. While Ananya was finalised a while ago, Tara joined the cast later.” Like Student Of The Year, the sequel too will be a love triangle. The film has gone on floors yesterday. The makers had shared a picture of St Teresa school which featured in the last film and announced the commencement of the shoot. We hear the makers are planning to shoot the film in Rishikesh and Mussoorie.
As per an earlier tweet, SOTY 2 will release on November 23, 2018. We hear after the success of Baaghi 2, Karan Johar decided to tweak Tiger’s character in Student Of The Year 2. Though the prequel hardly had any action sequences, we hear SOTY 2 will now have four high-octane action sequences thanks to the success of Shroff’s last offering.
