Karan Johar had announced that Tiger Shroff would be playing the main lead in “Student Of The Year 2″.
Tiger Shroff will be fronting the Punit Malhotra directed sequel to Karan Johar’s “Student of the Year”, along with two leading ladies, one of whom is reportedly Chunky Panday’s daughter Ananya. Now, Mirror has learnt that TV actor Karan Tacker has been finalized to play the baddie.
A source associated with the project revealed that talks have been on for a while and Karan is expected to sign on the dotted line soon. “Karan’s turn will see him come up with obstacles for the hero. He has already started his prep. Tiger will be sporting a new look for the film that includes a short crop.”
Punit Malhotra, when contacted, refused to divulge details, saying shortly, “‘Student of the Year 2’ features Tiger Shroff and two new girls. As of now, the only person on-board is Tiger. We will announce the rest of the cast soon.”
Karan made his TV debut with the show “Love Ne Milla De Jodi” playing the lead role of Sameer which aired on STAR One. But he rose the popularity from his role of Viren Singh Vadhera from the popular Star Plus serial “Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai”. After the show came to an end in 2013, the actor has been away from fiction shows and has hosted many popular TV shows.
