Shooting of Student of the Year coming to an end

The shooting of Karan Johar’s (“KJo”) upcoming movie ‘Student of the Year’ has almost come to an end.  Perfect timing, wouldn’t you agree, as most students are looking forward to summer break from school!

Student of the Year” is KJo’s next directorial venture after My Name is Khan in 2010.  So, expectations are obviously high for this next movie, but based on KJo’s past releases, we’re confident it’ll be another home run!

Shooting of ‘Student of the Year’ is currently on in full swing and Karan recently tweeted about the last two shooting schedule of the film saying,

“Last 2 schedules of SOTY left…we start 2mor again…back to school!!!!”

The movie was shot at various beautiful locations such as Kashmir, Shimla, Dehradun and Thailand. The campus flick stars newcomers Siddharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan (director David Dhawan’s son) and Alia Bhatt (filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter). It also marks the debut of Boman Irani’s son – Kayoze Irani.

Apart from the newcomers, a buzz was created about Shahrukh Khan playing the role of a professor in the movie. However, later they decided to go with Rishi Kapoor for the role of a professor – also a great choice! With such beautiful locations, fresh new faces, and controversies, this movie is one to look out for!  It is slated to release on 19th October.  So, for all you fans of Karan Johar this is a movie you ought to watch!
