Karan Johar and Ishaan Khatter

Of late, reports were making the rounds that filmmaker Karan Johar is considering casting Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khatter for the second lead in his film ‘Student Of The Year 2’. The film, which is the second instalment of famous ‘Student Of The Yeat’ that marked the Bollywood debut of Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, will see Tiger Shroff in the lead. The poster of the same was released recently and had garnered a good response on social media.

Further to this, we heard that Ishaan too would be a part of this film. But through Twitter, Karan Johar has clarified that all these stories are untrue. 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….”



This sets records straight.

Talking about Ishaan, he is making his Bollywood debut with KJo’s film ‘Dhadak’. It is the official Hindi remake of Marathi film ‘Sairat’ and will see Ishaan pairing opposite Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor. The film is slated to release on July 6, 2018.
