Ishaan Khatter to not star alongside Tiger Shroff in Student Of The Year 2

As Tiger Shroff is all set to play the lead in Student Of The Year 2, rumours were rife about Dhadak’s Ishaan Khatter starring alongside Tiger Shroff in the Student Of The Year 2. Moreover, as per a leading Indian daily, a source said, “Just like the first part, this film will also have many songs. There will also be a few action scenes. Ishaan is already gearing up for them.”

However, Karan Johar took to his official Twitter handle to refute rumours about Ishaan being a part of Student Of The Year 2. He tweeted, “CLARIFICATION: Ishaan is the lead of #Dhadak directed by @ShashankKhaitan and Tiger Shroff is the Lead of #StudentOfTheYear2 directed by @punitdmalhotra …all other cross stories floating around are baseless and untrue….”

Meanwhile, Ishaan Khatter will be debuting in Karan Johar’s Dhadak opposite Janhvi Kapoor. The film is directed by Shashank Khaitan and the movie is a remake of a Marathi blockbuster film Sairat.

Speaking about Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor, Karan said to a leading Indian daily, “At Dharma (Productions), we believe very strongly in promoting new talent. A host of first time filmmakers, technicians and actors have begun their journey in the entertainment industry from the corridors of our company. I am exhilarated and proud to present two sparkling new energies and new acting talents- Janhvi and Ishaan- that will begin their cinema story with us. Also, I am very honoured to collaborate with Zee studios on this ambitious adaptation of the hugely successful and celebrated Marathi film Sairat.”
