After the recent success of Baaghi 2, Tiger Shroff is gearing up Karan Johar’s upcoming sequel Student of the year 2. According to reports, Tiger is off to Dehradun to start shooting for ‘Student Of The Year’ in the first week of April. The team will be shooting their first month-long schedule in a real school of the hill station, similar to the film’s first installment.
Tiger explained how Student of the Year 2 will help him break out of the mold of an action star. “Well, it’s definitely a contrast to Baaghi 2. I’m playing more of my age, younger. I’m not playing a one-man killing machine type. I play a boy going to school, facing his problems and being a boy next door kind of a guy and a very realistic character,” he shared.
Ever since Karan Johar announced the sequel, speculations regarding who will play the lead have been floating in full swing. Actors such as Disha Patani, Sara Ali Khan, and Ananya Panday were rumored to star opposite Tiger Shroff for the last year. However, the rumors can now be put to rest as it has finally been revealed who will play the female lead in this rom-com. Filmmaker Karan Johar has decided to cast Chunky Pandey’s daughter Ananya opposite Tiger Shroff in the movie. “Karan, Tiger Shroff, and director Punit Malhotra were present at the audition where Ananya was asked to read out Alia’s lines from Student Of The Year. And Ananya sailed through like a professional. Karan immediately decided to cast her,” the source added.
The other lead actress who has been finalized is Tara Sutaria! The former Disney Channel India alumnus has worked on shows like The Suit Life of Karan & Kabir, Oye Jassie, and Shake It Up, and even the reality show, Entertainment Ke Lie Kuch Bhi Karega as a teenager. Tara is not new to the acting world and is a professional dancer and musician, which has further raised our excitement to see her onscreen with Tiger and Ananya.
