After Karan Johar’s Student of the Year gave Bollywood three stars — Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra — he has the sequel all lined up. Karan tweeted that Student of the Year 2 is very much on track with Tiger Shroff as its star and Punit Malhotra as the director.

Karan wrote, “It’s OFFICIAL….Directed by Punit Malhotra STUDENT OF THE YEAR 2 ( SOTY2) with TIGER SHROFF @iTIGERSHROF.” Tiger had earlier spoken about how surprised he was when Karan called him for a screen test. However, going by the casting, he seems to have aced it.

It is not clear which actress will be starring opposite Tiger. Earlier, it was speculated that SOTY 2 will be the debut of Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan and Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara.

After Karan’s news, the original cast of SOTY took to Twitter to congratulate Tiger. “Sounds exciting @karanjohar can’t wait to watch it best of luck @punitdmalhotra n @iTIGERSHROFF,” wrote Sidharth.

“#soty2 sound great. Best of luck Punit and @iTIGERSHROFF. Im sure you will graduate with flying colours,” wrote Varun. Alia, however, had the best take on Tiger’s casting, “YAY💃💃 I wonder who the lovely girl is?😉 Either way no one better than @iTIGERSHROFF to take the franchise forward!!!”

“He (Tiger) has been offered Student of the Year 2. He is yet to hear the final narration post which he will most likely sign the film. He is quite excited about it (sequel) as it’s a Karan Johar film,” sources had said earlier. The rest of the cast is yet to be disclosed.

    Tiger doesn't look like a student anymore. He looks older. Karan signs Sara Khan as he thinks she is Rani Mukherjee. Nice try.
