Student Of The Year 2 debut actress Tara Sutaria is said to be dating SOTY’s previous debut actor Sidharth Malhotra. Known to play Cupid to most of the tinsel town members, director Karan Johar is said to have a hand behind Bollywood’s new rumoured couple who are said to have met during a party where Karan reportedly lost no time in setting them up.

Deccan Chronicle quoted a source saying, “But, nothing intense. They are both busy building their careers. She’s just starting out and he’s looking to catch up with his contemporaries like Varun Dhawan and Vicky Kaushal who have raced far ahead. Distractions are the last thing he needs.”

While Tara and Sid are keeping their relationship under wraps, rumours have it that to gain viewer’s attention, the duo giving hints about them being together around the release time of Student Of The Year 2. Sidharth had previously dated Bollywood actresses Alia Bhatt and Kiara Advani. Recently, there were rumours that Alia has vowed to break all ties with Sidharth and that’s the reason the duo will not be allegedly seen together in Student of The Year 2. Sidharth, however, maintained that everything is just fine between the two. He said they haven’t talked to each other post their breakup. Sidharth’s statement reads, “We haven’t met after it. Our relationship is civil… I don’t think it’s bitter. It’s been a while. I have known her for much longer even before we dated. I gave my first ever shot with her in SOTY so there is so much history.”

SOTY 2 also stars Tiger Shroff and Ananya Pandey, marking the latter’s debut in Bollywood apart from Tara’s, in the lead roles. Helmed by Punit Malhotra, the film is slated to hit the screens on May 10.
