On October 19 2012, Bollywood got three new fresh faces and super talented actors who are currently ruling the industry with their choices of films and they are none other than Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. Filmmaker Karan Johar launched three new stars in Student Of The Year and today, the film completes 9 years of its release. The film was all about college days, friendship, love, dance and togetherness. Having said that, Karan took to his Instagram account and penned a lovely note for the three superstars who he considered his ultimate gifts. Dedicating a note to him, he mentioned how proud he feels to see the three of them succeeding and giving their absolute best to the field of cinema.

Sharing a small clip of SOTY and taking us down memory lane, KJo captioned the post as “October is just filled with gifts that keep giving – and #SOTY is one such! Not only does it continue to give everyone many tunes to break out in a dance or hum along, style that is timeless and for me, many many memories! But the ultimate gifts have been these three students, now superstars who keep on giving their absolute best to the field of cinema! Couldn’t be prouder and here’s to the film that started it all! #9YearsOfSOTY“. Even Varun who played one of the students in the film shared a shirtless picture of himself from the film and backed it with, “It’s been 9 years #tbt #SOTY.”
