Karan Johar tweeted, "CLARIFICATION: Ishaan is the lead of #Dhadak directed by @ShashankKhaitan and Tiger Shroff is the Lead of #StudentOfTheYear2 directed by @punitdmalhotra.all other cross stories floating around are baseless and untrue".
Yesterday even Karan Johar took to Twitter and clarified that even Ishaan Khatter is not part of the project.
Filmmaker Karan Johar has rubbished all rumours about Ishaan Khatter being a part of Student Of The Year 2.
However, Ishaan Khattar is going to star opposite Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi Kapoor in Karan Johar produced film Dhadak. While Tiger Shroff will play the lead role in the film, the Bigg Boss 11 contestant reportedly will have an important role in the flick.
A few days back, Karan had shared the first poster of the film revealing that Tiger Shroff is the first student. The report further stated that Priyank's popularity during his ongoing stint on popular reality show Bigg Boss 11 has made the maker of SOTY 2 consider him for the movie.
Priyank is now in the Bigg Boss 11 house and faced lot of criticism for demeaning other housemates. The first film in the "Student of the Year" franchise, which released in 2012, marked the Bollywood debut of actors Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt.
The source had added further, "Ishaan has a 40-day schedule for the film, following which he will move on to SOTY 2".
