‘Student of the year’ was released in 2012 and launched three very successful careers of Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra. Varun and Alia are the best in biz these days but Siddharth is having his own non-actor problems though Dharma is always there to back him up with an exciting project. He will be playing Kargil war hero Captain Vikram Batra in a biopic which will go on floors very soon. In 2012, film went onto become a superhit and raised expectations of anybody who was in school about the tonality of college though St. Teresa was as fictional as it gets.
The fictional school in the film actually exists by the name of ‘Forest Research Institute’ in Dehradun which caught the fancy of Karan Johar. His assistant’s team must have checked out tons of colleges from India and abroad and divided the many portions of shoot to have been shot in different areas. Some dance numbers inside the college were shot on the sets that were put up in Mumbai studios. Karan Johar had self admittedly mentioned that he tried to ape Hollywood film ‘High school Musical’ so that he can be culturally relevant as he had come off of very serious films like ‘My Name Is Khan’.
Tiger Shroff was signed a long time ago for the film and daughter of 90’s superstar Chunky Pandey who goes by the name of ‘Ananya Pandey’ is making her screen debut with this. This film will serve as an image reversal for Tiger who has only done hardcore action films might be seen as getting bullied in this one though his muscles suggest otherwise. Reports are that old students Varun, Sid and Alia will be coming together yet again for an extended cameo in the film only to relive the days of their first characters ever.
