After Dhadak, Ishaan Khatter Roped In For Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year 2?

While Shahid Kapoor‘s younger brother Ishaan Khatter is yet to start prepping for his first commercial outing under Karan Johar’s banner, the actor has already bagged his second Dharma film. Yes, you heard it right. According to a report in Midday, Karan Johar has roped in Ishaan for the second installment of his 2012 romance-drama, Student of the Year 2, which will be helmed by Punit Malhotra.

The second outing is a part of the three-film deal between the filmmaker and Khatter. Recently, Karan Johar took to Twitter to unveil the first poster of Student of the Year 2, featuring Tiger Shroff. Given that Khatter, who has a dance degree from Shiamak Davar’s institute, we could expect quite a few power-packed dance sequences in the film. A source told the daily, “Just like the first part, this film will also have many songs. There will also be a few action scenes. Ishaan is already gearing up for them.”

Khatter is all set to make his debut with Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds, which is helmed by Iranian director, Majid Majidi and was recently screened at IFFI in Goa. It received a huge applause from the audience. The actor was to make his debut with Dharma Productions but since Karan Johar’s Dhadak got a little delayed, he began work on Majidi’s film. Dhadak is a Hindi remake of Nagraj Manjule’s much-celebrated Marathi film, Sairat, which also marks the Bollywood debut of Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor. The film is expected to go on floors early next month. ALSO READ: (Bigg Boss 11: Kishwer Merchant Reacts To Eliminated Contestant Benafsha Soonawalla Calling Priyank Sharma Her Brother)

Speaking of delay in kicking off Student of the Year 2, “The film had been put on hold because Karan wanted a few changes in the script. An outing with Sara Ali Khan in the Bollywood remake of the American romance-drama, Fault In Our Stars, was apparently going to mark another collaboration between Ishaan and Karan. But, that got shelved.”
