Student of the Year 2 movie promotions is in top gear as the movie hits the theatres in less than 10 days. Ever since the trailer of the movie has made its way online, it has been criticized for its outlandish portrayal of college life, which is far from reality, even for the best of colleges in the country, by many. The new students, Tiger Shroff, Ananya Pandey, and Tara Sutaria, to promote their movie recently shot for The Kapil Sharma Show which will be aired this weekend.
On the show, Tiger Shroff was asked to differentiate between a real college and the larger than life like theirs in the movie. To everyone’s surprise and shock, Tiger revealed and admitted that he wouldn’t be able to tell the difference since he has not attended a real one. He also added that soon after his school got over, he took to shoot Sajid Nadiadwala’s Heropanti opposite Kriti Sanon, his debut movie in Bollywood. Mumbai Mirror further reported that he explained that only college he has been to is the one in the films.
Recently, SOTY 2’s new song dropped on the internet featuring one of the original students, Alia Bhatt with new joinee Tiger Shroff named Hook Up Song. Karan Johar is known for bringing in his favorite celebrities to perform cameos on one of the songs in his movies, as he considers them to be his lucky charms. For instance, he brought in Rani Mukerji in Maahi Ve from Kal Ho Na Ho, and Kajol in Disco Deewane from Student of the Year. This year, he chose the super successful actor Alia to be a part of his new production venture.
The director of the movie, Punit Malhotra was all praises for Alia in the song and said,
“The thought of getting one of the ex-students back in this film was the germ for it. So, we started building on it. When I spoke to Alia, she said, ‘I will rehearse non-stop.’ She was already juggling two films at that time. But she gave her 200 per cent to this song. Tiger dances well, but Alia has surpassed him. When you see the song, you’ll see that she is stunning. She has spared no effort and I give full credit to her. She had bruises on her hand, but the way she danced was simply amazing.”
Tiger too had amazing things to add to that for Alia, as he was quoted as saying,
“We had so much fun shooting the song. Personally, I have never done a dance number like that…working with Alia was an amazing experience. Though she is such a big star, she was open and cooperative on set while shooting the song.”
Though the actors and the makers are all in awe of Alia, we too agree that apart from Alia, this song has nothing to be liked. If you haven’t watched the song, we must congratulate you because once you do, you won’t be able to undo this. But if you still want to listen to the most foolish lyrics ever, go ahead.
