Karan Johar will be giving up this director's chair for this one and allow Manish Malhotra's nephew Punit Malhotra to direct the movie. Punit had directed the film I Hate Luv Storys in 2010.
There is no-one who can promote his own movies like Karan Johar does! Johar on Monday tweeted the first poster of his next venture Student of the Year 2. The movie is a sequel to 2012 romantic comedy starring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, and Sidharth Malhotra. The first part was directed by Karan Johar himself. The latest offering from the Dharma camp will see Tiger Shroff in lead role. The poster carries the highlights of the previous movie. The word on the female lead of the movie is shockingly still not out but rumours say that Disha Patani or Ananya Panday are likely to be in the lead. Exactly why there is no news about this aspect is not clear yet.
In the poster, one can see Tiger Shroff resting on a crest which houses the title of the film. The tagline reads, “Admissions open, 2018.” This puts an end to the speculation of the movie being slated for 2019 release.
