Karan Johar named Tiger Shroff as the male lead of Student of the Year 2 and it turns out there may be two leading ladies vying for Tiger in the sequel.
While the film’s leading ladies have not been revealed yet, a source tells DNA, “In the sequel, two girls will woo Tiger. In all possibility, it will be Sara Ali Khan (Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter) and Jhanvi Kapoor (Boney Kapoor and Sridevi’s daughter).”
A trade analyst explained the choice of casting the two newcomers, who have already been making waves thanks to their Instagram posts, “It is more profitable and a safer bet for a production house to launch a newcomer than to make a film with stars these days,” reports DNA.
Karan Johar confirms ‘Student Of The Year’ sequel
“When a banner launches an actor, they are contract-bound and the producer gets 20 per cent of whatever the actor makes for five years. This includes film fees, endorsements, shows, live performances, wedding appearances, etc. At the end of five years, KJo would have made at least `300 crore from Alia, Sidharth and Varun. That’s how much a Khan film makes! Aditya Chopra started this model and has launched maximum newcomers. In Karan’s case, all film kids want to be launched in his films, so it’s win-win,” he added.
Well, if true, Sara and Jhanvi will definitely prove to be a worthy addition to a long list of star kids venturing into movies.
