The sequel will be directed by Punit Malhotra.
We had earlier reported that Tiger Shroff is confirmed to play the lead in Student of The Year 2, which is directed by Punit Malhotra.
The original Student of The Year was directed by Karan Johar in 2012, and had launched the careers of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra - three of the brightest stars in Bollywood today. All the three are now a part of Karan Johar's Dream Team Tour that is currently touring USA, along with Katrina Kaif, Parineeti Chopra, Aditya Roy Kapur and Baadshah.
When Dharma Productions and Karan Johar announced that Tiger Shroff will be the lead in the sequel, all the three original students came on Twitter to wish the young star.
Alia tweeted, "YAY?? I wonder who the lovely girl is?? Either way no one better than @iTIGERSHROFF to take the franchise forward!!!"
Varun sent this message for his successor, "#soty2 sound great. Best of luck Punit and @iTIGERSHROFF. Im sure you will graduate with flying colours"
Sidharth Malhotra also had kind words for the new student, "Sounds exciting @karanjohar can't wait to watch it best of luck @punitdmalhotra n @iTIGERSHROFF"
Here are their tweets,
Like Alia, we are also wondering which female student will romance Tiger in the sequel. Watch this space for more updates on the project.
