Tara Sutaria will be making her Bollywood debut with Student Of The Year 2. She has already bagged her second film, Hindi remake of Telegu actioner RX 100 opposite Ahan Shetty.
Ananya Panday looked pretty in her monochrome crop top and white skirt which she complimented with red running shoes. Ananya will make her acting debut with Student of the Year 2, which is slated to hit the screens on May 10, this year. The actress will also be seen opposite Kartik Aaryan in the remake of the film Pati Patni Aur Woh.
In what may be seen as a warning to fans, the cast of Student Of The Year 2, Tiger Shroff and Ananya Panday have said that the Karan Johar-backed offering is an "escapist film". The audience, they suggested, mustn't put on their thinking caps while watching it. When the trailer of the film dropped last week, it was met with criticism for being far from reality and showcasing a "fantasy" school life.
At the launch of the film's song, Ananya Panday said the audience should approach the film through a magical lens. "It was funny when people said, 'We didn't have these uniforms in school'. Even I didn't. It is a larger-than-life film and you have to take the magic that comes with it."

Point out that the representation of students - who encounter bullying and body-shaming in schools - isn't accurate, and Ananya Panday says, "In school, [kids] face a lot of pressure. There is a lot of stuff going on. So, when people go to watch movies, they want to escape from that. We are providing an escape for them through this movie. We are not trying to be role models. We are just trying to provide a moment of happiness and joy." To this, Tiger Shroff added, "It is not a heavy film. It's a film for the youth. It's an entertainment experience for everyone. Come have fun, don't bring your thinking caps," he said.

The makers of Student of the Year 2 have released the second song from the movie titled 'Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiyaan', and it's set to become the party anthem of the season. The song featuring Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria has already garnered over 65,000 views in under half an hour. The song stars Tiger, Tara and Ananya in traditional attire and in one shot shows the trio jumping in a vat of grapes. Composed by Vishal and Shekhar, the lyrics are penned by Vayu and the song is sung by Dev Negi, Payal Dev and Vishal Dadlani.
