Defending the film, its director and actors say the movie promotes sports and the world it shows is fictional. Ananya, who is making her Bollywood debut with the film, said: "I love all the memes and trolls that are coming on my way... I think since 'Koffee With Karan', my expression became the subject of memes and I love sharing it with my friends. I put it on my social media stories. It is really funny... honestly."
Tara Sutaria, who is also debuting with the film, said: "Initially, trolling did affect me but now I know that it is a part and parcel of our job...and especially with a film like 'SOTY 2', where we are trying to create a world that is larger than life. "I think even when the first ‘Student Of The Year' (SOTY) came, there was criticism that the film faced. But now we all take it in good spirit."
Tiger Shroff, who will be playing a kabaddi player in the film said: "I think sports should actually be a very integral part of our upbringing because it shapes our personality. Especially in the present time when we are more tech-savvy in student life, we should all take out some time to involve ourselves in outdoor activities and get some Vitamin D."
Kriti Sanon was also spotted at the Mumbai airport. The actress was seen wearing a distressed t-shirt dress when snapped by the paparazzi. Talking about Arjun Patiala, Kriti Sanon's next project, the actress said in a media interaction: "It is releasing on July 19 and of course, the trailer will be out accordingly. I feel it's a completely different kind of a comedy. It's a slightly spoofy kind of a comedy. I don't think that kind of a take on comedy has been done before."
