No Ishaan Khatter Starring Alongside Tiger Shroff In Student Of The Year 2, Karan Johar Confirms
After a five year wait, Karan Johar finally announced the sequel to his much loved film Student Of The Year, with Tiger Shroff starring in the film. There have been much speculations following that, linking actors like Ananya Pandey and even Priyank Sharma to the film. The most talked of those being the rumour of Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter starring alongside Tiger in the film.
However, Karan Johar trashed those rumours. According to a tweet by Taran Adarsh, Karan clarified saying, “Ishaan is the lead of #Dhadak [directed by Shashank Khaitan] and Tiger Shroff is the lead of #StudentOfTheYear2 [directed by Punit Malhotra]… All other cross stories floating around are untrue.” This should put an end to the rumours suggesting Khatter’s involvement in the film.
Karan Johar clarifies: “Ishaan is the lead of #Dhadak [directed by Shashank Khaitan] and Tiger Shroff is the lead of #StudentOfTheYear2 [directed by Punit Malhotra]… All other cross stories floating around are untrue.”

Talking about the Student Of The Year 2, Tiger Shroff earlier told a leading daily, “As for SOTY 2, it is more pressurizing for me, because those are big shoes to fill. It was the launch pad for Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan, and was a successful film that was also loved by people. It is Karan [Johar] sir’s baby. He told me that he gets a lot of mails from people asking him when he would go on floors with the sequel. It is an honour to work with Karan sir.”
A source had earlier told a leading daily, “The first SOTY film was a love triangle set on a college campus, but the second won’t have another leading man. It’s a solo-hero film. Karan has always been a Jackie Shroff fan. Working with his son is something he wanted to do from the time Tiger was ready to make his debut.” Keep watching this space for more.
