After a long delay, Dharma Productions’ ‘Student Of The Year 2’ is finally all set to go to the sets. Action star Tiger Shroff, who headlines the much-awaited project, has reportedly flown to Dehradun where he will begin the first shooting schedule of the film. ‘SOTY 2’ is mounting the shooting floor in the first week of April for a month-long schedule. The first shooting schedule generally comprises the portion which needs to be shot at a real school in Dehradun.
“Tiger, who had bulked up for ‘Baaghi 2’, has been working on getting a more athletic and less muscular body to pass off as a student. The film will see him as a romantic hero and flaunting his dancing skills rather than have him in an action avatar. With just a week to go before ‘SOTY2’ rolls, Tiger has been squeezing time between promotions for prep,” reveals a source close to the actor.
‘Student Of The Year 2’ is a sequel to Karan Johar’s college- romance drama ‘Student Of The Year’. Released in 2012, the movie launched the careers of Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan in Bollywood.
Talking about the project, Tiger had earlier said that he had a huge responsibility on his shoulder. “The franchise is Karan Johar sir’s baby and it’s a huge responsibility to take over. ‘SOTY’ was a huge success and the idea is to take the franchise even higher now so they can prepare themselves for a third part.”
While the sequel is set to roll from the first week of April with Tiger Shroff, the makers have yet not announced the names of its female leads. Reportedly, ‘SOTY 2’ is a two-heroine project and the makers are keen to launch two fresh faces with the movie. Buzz has it that Karan is introducing Chunky Panday’s daughter Ananya Panday and another debutante Tara Sutaria with his film.
‘Student Of The Year 2’ is being directed by Punit Malhotra.
