This is Karan Johar’s first film post My Name is Khan and the only film in which Shah Rukh Khan does not have a leading role. He might do a cameo in it, though. The film will be a launch pad for Siddharth Malhtra, Varun Dhawan, and Alia Bhatt. Shooting begins in June. Alia is said to be already dating her co-star Varun Dhawan, Son of David Dhawan.
Alia and Varun met during the casting and got along well. Alia is new to Dharma while Varun is a regular at the production house and has also assisted KJo on My Name is Khan. They hit it off from the first day and are now dating and getting to know each other before shooting begins.
Alia is seventeen-years-old and loves to watch movies and television shows and listen to music. She is Pooja and Rahul Bhatt’s step-sister. She is on Twitter but does not tweet often and follows only her family members. She gets cranky if she does not sleep enough. She likes partying and is friends with Akanksha Ranjan, the younger daughter of Anu and Shashi Ranjan, among others.
Nothing is known about her role in the film but one can guess that the movie will be like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. While KKHH had two girls and one guy, SOTY has one girl and two guys fighting over her. It is a campus romance which should be out by the end of this year.
Here is the first look of the Karan Johar upcoming directorial venture Student of The Year. In movie poster there are three newcomers Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra. The film will be produced by none other than Karan's best friend, Shahrukh Khan.
