Back in 2012, Student of the Year introduced three amazing actors who are now, highly sought-after names in Bollywood. Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan were part of what is being called “the first batch” of the “coolest school ever.” Packed with peppy music sequences and a lot of entertaining drama, SOTY turned out to be a major box-office success. No wonder, the makers of the film decided to continue the franchise and are back with Student of the Year 2. While we wait for the new story to unfold, we’ve got the most exciting highlights about the movie right here.
The First Look
Just like SOTY, SOTY2 has a love-triangle as one of the primary plot themes. It is evident that the story revolves around young college students. Tiger Shroff tweeted the first look of the film in November. It’s a vibrant poster that features Tiger resting on the SOTY shield, sporting a brat-look in rough casuals. The words “Admissions open 2018” add to the fun element.
The Release Date
At present, all the promotional posters focus on the lead actor. This has been increasing the curiosity about the female leads. The latest poster tweeted by Karan Johar is even better than the first, giving off a more relaxed vibe. Karan revealed the official release date as 23rd November 2018 in the same tweet.
The Leading Ladies
There has been plenty of gossip regarding the female leads in SOTY2. Initially, there were rumors that Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara and Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor would make their debut with this film. Then, Miss World Manushi Chillar was said to be the leading lady. And now, the buzz is about Chunky Pandey’s daughter Ananya playing the female lead. Interestingly, there has been no official announcement about the same yet. In their latest tweet, Dharma Productions clarified that SOTY2 will have two leading ladies whose names would be announced in February.
Karan Johar is Not the Director This Time!
It may come as a surprise to Karan Johar fans but the director is a co-producer for Student of the Year 2. Unlike in the first film, the sequel would be directed by Punit Malhotra. Previously, Punit gave us rom-coms like I Hate Luv Storys and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein. His affiliation with the genre strengthens the prospect of SOTY2 being a true entertainer.
This Marks Tiger’s Entry Into the Rom-Com Genre
So far, Tiger has starred in genres like action and action-dance with one comic superhero movie. Fans are in for a treat as the actor makes his debut in the romantic-comedy genre with Student of the Year 2.
Apart from the SOTY sequel, Tiger Shroff will be seen in the sequel of his 2016 Baaghi this year. He will also play the lead in the official remake of Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo series.
