Karan Johar has revealed the first look of his much-awaited directorial venture Student of the Year, on Twitter.
He has posted a poster showing three students sitting on a bench wearing T-shirts in identical colours with their names written on back.
“The Student Of The Year (SOTY) teaser poster,” Karan tweeted on Sunday.
Though the poster does not reveal much about the story-line, it definitely keeps up with the youthful theme of the movie.
Indian actor Kajol, who has been in all of Karan Johar’s films, will be seen doing a cameo in his latest production.
“Karan has always considered Kajol as his lucky mascot. So, for Student of the Year, he wanted her to do a special appearance and she readily agreed,” a source said.
Johar, who made his directorial debut with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, had Kajol and Shahrukh Khan in the lead. His following releases, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, My Name Is Khan and We Are Family, too, had Kajol in the lead.
Kal Ho Naa Ho and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, which Johar produced, had Kajol briefly appearing in two songs.
“For this film, she has already shot her part,” the source said. Whether Khan is also doing a cameo in the romantic comedy is yet to be seen.
Anjali is back!
Making a mark in Bollywood as the eight-year-old cute and bubbly daughter of Shahrukh Khan in Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, actor Sana Saeed has resumed her tryst with acting after 14 years in Johar’s film Student Of The Year.
“I have a full-fledged role in the film. It is not a cameo. I play a high school hottie –Tanya. It is the second lead,” the 23-year-old said.
Sana made her debut in Bollywood with Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) as a child artist and shot to fame as Shahrukh’s daughter Anjali in the movie.
Rohan, Shanaya and Abhimanyu played by new comers Siddharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan respectively are the central characters of the movie and their first poster captured their youthfulness.
Co-produced by superstar Shahrukh Khan, it will be released on October 19.
