Karan Johar has long been planning to make the sequel to his 2013 super hit movie Student Of The Year which turned the lead cast of the movie, Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan into superstars.
One would think the sequel to consist of the same cast as the first but apparently Karan Johar had approached Tiger Shroff to play the lead in the sequel to Student Of The Year.
Tiger got a dream debut with Heropanti and has been signing some good projects too, but a Karan Johar film, this early in his career is a sign that his stars are changing.
A source revealed, "Karan met Tiger a few days ago and spoke about casting him as one of the leads. Tiger loved the part and readily agreed to the project."
The source further went on to add that Karan has not finalized the rest of the cast, "It will definitely not be anytime soon because Tiger will soon get into action for Sabbir Khan's next and will follow up with a Remo D'Souza's action romance co-starring Jacqueline Fernandez."
Meanwhile, Karan Johar just returned after spending a month in the US where his mother, Hiroo Johar undwerwent back surgery.
