Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year 3’ to release on OTT
Karan Johar, known for launching talents like Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, and Sidharth Malhotra with his high-school drama "Student of the Year" (SOTY) in 2012, followed by a sequel in 2019 starring Ananya Panday, Tara Sutaria, and Tiger Shroff under Puneet Malhotra's direction, is now gearing up for another instalment of the franchise.
Speculation suggests that this time, "SOTY" will take the form of a web series set to stream on Disney+ Hotstar.
Excitingly, Karan will introduce Shanaya Kapoor, the daughter of Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor, to the OTT platform with this project, marking her debut as an actor.
Previously, there were plans for her to make her silver screen debut in the director's "Bedhadak", but that didn't materialise. Instead, she is now set to be launched in Nanda Kishore's pan-India film "Vrushabha".
Notably, Shanaya already has experience in the film industry, having worked as an assistant director on "Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl", which stars her cousin, Janhvi Kapoor.
According to various Indian media reports, the project is currently in its initial stages and is scheduled to commence filming in the last quarter of this year.
The series is expected to introduce more fresh faces alongside Shanaya, and the process of finalising the cast and director is currently underway.
